Follow up on copy editing

As stated earlier, it'll cut a good chunk of words, which will allow a writer to get closer to his/her word count goal after completing the novel. I just finished the second copy edit on my first chapter, and cut 23% of words total between the two runs. Let's say you start at 96k words, 20% less will cut you down to 92-93k words.

Second edit=10% less words at least.
