A word here a word there

One thing that always surprises me with editing something after leaving it for a week is just how many words you can trim. I’ve been cutting the odd word here and there from a story tonight so I can add a few extra words I think are needed at the end. A week ago I couldn’t see where there was any slack. Now I can find a hundred words without trying.

Leaving a piece over night always worked for me. I should do that with my blogs, but unfortunately it's unlikely that I will.
