comment How many different words are in the average novel?
New answer just brought me back to this question almost 2 years later. Still not happy with any of the answers, even though I'm itching to accept. Haven't been around much for awhile-- glad to see the beta's still going :)

comment Tips to identify “noise” or “clutter” in your story
I don't know... I can't remember where I saw it. I tried looking for it and couldn't find it. Give me time, I will find it eventually.

comment Tips to identify “noise” or “clutter” in your story
The single most useful piece of writing advice I've ever encountered came from the author Haruki Murakami, who said something to the effect of "Spend as much time as possible on the things the reader has never seen before, and minimize everything else."

That is exactly a key part of this question, yes. I will edit in when I feel like it.
