Noun by noun, it's slowly whittled down

Really more by adjectives and adverbs, but hey, I couldn't make that rhyme.

Current word count: 260,700

    KINDRED gets curbed
    Away with the meaningless babble and blurb
    I WILL not grow weary I WILL not perturb

    *cringe*

    Well you never said *I* couldn't make a rhyme. :-)
