The 10% Solution

Boy, I really haven't posted here for a long time. I even have one story that belongs up here -- Mercedes M. Yardley's "Ray the Vampire", which was over 1000 words when she submitted it -- but I haven't posted it yet.

I will, maybe, if I'm really lucky. In the meantime, check out "The 10% Solution", which is a concise statement of basic things to look for while cutting. I agree that they'll give you about 10%, without giving you the 25% cut that I try to hit, but it's a good list nonetheless.

Yeah, yeah. You're afraid to post it because of the blood, sweat, tears, and death threats that went into it.

Although your edits really did tighten it beautifully. I appreciate that. :)
