I mentioned an old friend of my main character's. And I only told a short descripion of him....should I remove this?(he really has nothing to do with my story) I don't plan on bringing him up any more....and really it doesn't fit.... Should I write something in it's place to make up for it? Also: I have listed my mc's old pack rules(before she left and became part of a different one) And I think I should remove this as well....it tells about the packs ranks, rules, ect.... Removing all this will leave a big word count gap(most of this is what you all call "filler"...) so should I get a word count of it all and try to write something in it's place to be about the same count?
