A little late in discovering this, but fantastic advice. I didn't realise how radical, in the sense of radical surgery, editing can be until I was pressured to shave 40K words out of my 140Kword novel to get it through Pitchwars last year, and changed the plot not one jot.

It seems Pascal's "I would have written a shorter letter, but I did not have the time." remains true. So perhaps we should all take more time with editing.

In fact I should probably go do that right now.
