Current WIP: 4,019 / 85,000
Today I managed to remove words in one MS while adding ~200 words of plot building in another. By “plot building,” I was working out the story’s plot alongside the outline that I build. I like to create a table or a grid, mapping out the story arcs I have going, and seeing how they all line up chapter-by-chapter. So no actual word count increase on the MS in question, but, developmentally, there’s progress.
