Chopping a little here and there

I’ve been taking time off from my editing to just think about things. Sometimes you have to step back and think a little to see the bigger picture.

The other day I did remove a scene that didn’t advance the plot at all. There went 2,000 words – poof! It felt good. I honestly was holding on to that scene for no reason. I don’t know what I was thinking really, but I suppose that is the way things go.

Now, get this. I’m sitting at 118,109. Honestly. I am only on page 156 of 516, so there’s plenty of room to improve.

Let’s see what happens!
