Almost there…

I’m only 400 words away from 78,000 now. It’s going well. Last week I made a list of things to add that would lift the word count and I’ve only ticked off one so far. That’s good because the range for my genre is 80,000-90,000 words. I should be in there soon and maybe I’ll end up right in the middle.

The changes I’ve made have really made the book read better. I’m not just adding words, I’ve been taking them away as well. It’s hard knowing the word count would go down, but reading the sentence or paragraph again justifies the cut. I’d rather have less words and a better book than more words and get passed on by an agent/publisher.

Take care,

Zahra
