It's So Close I Can Smell It...

>> Wednesday, September 17, 2008

...and I'm salivating with the promise of victory on the horizon. I'm almost finished with my short story. I just need to finish up the last scene or so, and I can begin editing it. I'm way over word count for the story competition, I just know it. But, I've done much worse on college papers and somehow managed to trim them down to limit. The papers always came out so much the better, somehow. That's why I consider it a good sign when I go over my word limit. Does anyone else ever feel this way, or am I just crazy?

It is certainly less work to removed words from the story than to have to add them. If it works best for you, that's all that matters. It's exciting that you are almost done.

I'm excited for you Quilly! I will be happy to read and help you edit if you wish. I'm still curious how it is all going to pan out for the cows *smiles*.

Definitely easier to remove words than to add overall.
