think know I need to cut some stuff out of my WIP. The problem is–if I do, it will slash my word count by at least 2,000 words. The question is: since this is my first draft, do I leave the stuff in (just to keep that word count) and remove it in revisions, or cut it now, thus causing me to make up those words?

I did the cuts and they weren’t nearly as tragic as I thought. I only lost about 700 words, not the 2,000 I’d anticipated. YAY.
