Perfection comes with editing. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from writing in drabble format, it’s that perfection comes with editing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve checked the word count of a Lord Charming chapter and landed at 126 words. So I weed out, tighten up, and whittle away until I reach that perfect 100.
On days I start out with 153 words, I groan inwardly and reach for the pruning shears. But on days like today, my heart is exceedingly light.
Oh, the inexpressible joy of landing precisely at 100 words on the first try! ::twinkle::
