55 + chapters so far, am in the midle of an edit to reduce the word count and pull it back in as it was around 122k words. A book is as long or as short as it needs to ne, but it doesn't hurt to cut out the filler/glue words. :)

@SarahWeaver6, The words that matter, the right words.

Instead of:

A long stairwell loomed into the depths, she ran down the stairs after him.

Try:

A long stairwell loomed into the depths, she ran down after him.

Two words cut, and the meaning hasn't changed. Take out anything that's redundant. The description tells the reader its a stairwell so it implies that's where she's running as that's what the character is seeing right now.

Easy! Other ones like:

He turned, toward the pumpkin.

Can become:

Turning toward the pumpkin.

As long as readers know who's pov is leading the chapter they'll assume it's the main pov doing the actions. :)

Adding in a few -ing words is perfectly fine, as it also helps with the problem of changing up the sentence variety, to avoid" He/she" "I/me" all the time.
