Short & Sweet or Long & Luxurious?
Second, is what I call the long and luxurious method. These writers tend to fall on the high end of the word count range and spend most of the revisions cutting. They hone in on the unnecessary scenes, characters, description and trim it down to only that which is essential to the story.
I'm a short and sweet writer and I like it this way, but I'm pretty sure it's simply because this method is my comfort zone. I love adding new things during revisions and seeing my story brought to life in a whole new way. It's my favorite part.
What kind of writer are you? Which path do you take? What do you like most about your chosen method? Also, Happy Monday!!
