23272 Words. Do Chapter headings count in the word count?

If not, then 21 words are cheater words: The title, by line, and two words for each chapter heading. I ought to make a new chapter. 916 words today.

I’ve got the protagonist back to the orphanage, I’ve assembled all the armed men and women from all three sides, so something’s gotta happen. Is it a running gun battle, mobile infantry vs. infantry, or mobile infantry move to transport and escape again?

    • Ah. The unruly masses. I haven’t really made them a character… but I suppose I could easily incorporate the teeming unhappy masses, with inferences here and there. Establish that they’re really unhappy. That’s a good direction, it will make things easier later on if there’s massive unrest. The modifications ought to take about 1000 words here n’ there to create the picture of unrest and unhappiness.
