revision ink

There’s an anthology I want to submit Breath of the Grave to, but the limit is 5000 words and BG is 5800. This morning I trimmed and sliced away 460, but I’m nearing the end with not much left to cut. The story’s much tighter now, but it’ll need one more pass of the knife and a dash of revision ink.

Last night was submission night–sounds a bit S&M, doesn’t it? Shadow went off to market and I meant to send out Three Heartbeats and Auno’s Widow, but both need another read-through. So, a little submitting is in order again tonight.
