How big is too big?

I've finished – at least I think I've finished – the first draft of Probable Claws. It's a little over 85,000 words. Is that too big?

Tomorrow I start reading it through to see if it makes sense.

Congratulations and well done! And 85,000 words is not too big. You know what's too big? That kitty! Holy dinah! That's a large cat! Musetta is hiding right now. "That is not my daddy!"

Thanks, Linda! I'm actually happy with that length ... and expect to probably add a bit as I revise (I tend to leave a good deal of detail in my head while working through the first draft). But how could I resist tying it in with that cat?
