Less is More

Good advice for just about everything including writing, apparently.  The editing wizards preach cut and clean. Take out the extraneous. Delete the boring detail. Remove excess dialogue tags. Don’t lecture. Don’t explain. And, BTW, no flashbacks.

Following this slash and burn technique, my manuscript has shrunk from 74,000 words to 68, 000 and I’m not done yet. I’m starting to worry.

Is this new improved version clear or cold? Inquiring minds want to know 🙂
