Friday Freeday: Word Count

Good afternoon!

This will be a short one, but since most people post an uplifting post on Fridays, I thought I'd share some good news, and that is that I have dropped my WIP's word count to 98k! I still have about 90 pages to review, so I might even see 97k. I didn't think it was possible, but I cut some scenes that weren't very important and cleaned up my characters' speech to make it more tailored to their individual personalities. I hope this also makes for a more concrete narrative. :D

Have a good weekend!


  1. Wow, congrats! It can be really hard to cut scenes like that sometimes, so it's all the more impressive to me that you were able to shrink your WIP that much...

    1. Thanks. I really hate cutting my scenes, especially if they were in Draft 1, but it was necessary.
