    Reveal, Advance, or Get Out of My Story

    I recently wrote a short story and decided to submit it to a publication. I hired our own novelspaces co-ordinator, Liane, who did a brilliant line edit on it and I was about to submit it when I re-read the submission requirements. Maximum word count: 3,500 words. Yikes! My story was pushing 5,000 words. I had to drop a third of it and quick.
