Well, after some further rewriting, my lower word count of 6700ish shot up to 7578. This means I’ll have to cut at least 78 words just to have it ready for publication–magazines don’t really take anything over 7500 words unless you’re already known to them. But considering what I want to actually do, I might have to cut some 200-300 words so I can put in a new scene. But that’s the problem: I’m wary of taking out a scene already, for fear of collapsing the entire structure that is this story.

I think I’m going to sleep on it…
