I'm having the hardest time keeping the word count down for a short story I'm working on. Err - rather a short short story - 1500 words aprox 3 pages. Could be I'm trying to jam too much info in. I've got three scenes planned. But I'm thinking three is too much. Then I was thinking of doing it in flashback - but does anyone like flashback stories out there. I don't mind them, if they're done well. Okay, I'm yammering... Anyone got any tips - how to cut down on word count? or that one scene would work best?
