Hello fellow writers,

I know this is going to be very subjective. I'm in my first round of edits, and I realized that I could condense 2 chapters into 1 chapter, and still get the point across. Then my wandering mind started thinking about merging in another chapter. And another chapter. And another.

It's late. And I'm probably overthinking it, but I'm interested in where you guys draw the line when "trimming the fat."

I'm sure it's a balance thing... I'm just wondering if there's a general rule of thumb that I don't know about.

Thanks in advance!
