Revising To Cut Or Increase Your Word Count

Episode 36
00:00 / 01:04

Are you the kind of writer who drafts a lot of words, or the kind who drafts short? Particularly with debut novels, agents match genres to preferred word counts in order to gauge if a story is underedited or sparse. These expectations can be a great guideline for any author, helping point us in the right direction for revisions. If you’re staring at a bloated manuscript, or are struggling to beef up that word count, join us in this episode where we explore both big picture ways to cut and add words, as well as share tips on how to do this on a sentence level.
