1018

According to my work processor (Open Office Writer), that's how many words it took to make the case for a 750 word submission. Hmmmmmm. Ponder that.

The last paragraph...

I think the last paragraph says it all, especially the last two lines.

1025 if you add his title

That is the actual number of words. The title is also important to add, right?

Great Tips

SunrockSin did us all a big favor by submitting this article. Even in the longer (much longer) stories on the site fail to follow the basic model of having a start, middle and end. The idea of submitting a well done short story of 750 words is challenging and will help hone a writer's abilities in all their efforts. So Thanks SunrockSin for the great tips.

Yep!

You got it in one - or 750! Delightfully cynical and brutally accurate.

Ok. But why does it always have to be the fat slob of a guy who visits the worst sex of her life on her?

I only see 2 H's among the numerous stories

listed in your profles---Sood writers score them on at least half their stories--So much for your advice

Well said

It's not the number of words, but how they're strung together that counts.

Great advice

Being published, I know how important word count is. I found it out the hard way when my first book rang in at 210,000 words and sold two copies! Editing is very important; so many times I've seen postings that could've swapped out one word in place of a five-word phrase.
