Kill Your Darlings

Put down the gun! I meant your words, those precious words you have slaved over for your novel.

Rachelle Gardiner has a great list of ways to reduce your word count and make your manuscript better.
Words like: almost, were, really, somewhat, and then, exactly, suddenly... and more.

Gerunds, adjectives, adverbs, are a few of the things to cut or reduce.
Go and look at the list and see if you can clean up your manuscript!!

Happy editing/writing :)
