Default Help! How do you cut 5000 words to 2000??

Got my review done, will have to figure out how to down or (up) load the pictures--not to that point yet. My big problem is how to scrunch 5000 words down to the 2000 words limit per posting rules and guidelines for my review!!

You can do multiple parts on the message boards. There is no rule against doing multiple chapters.

If you are going to submit it to the Reader Reviews you can't upload pictures. On the message boards you have to upload your pictures to the Cruise Photo gallery and then link them within your story. Rollerdonna is the expert on this.

Take care,
Mike

Just remove all the letter e's from the review - that would probably cut it down to 2000.

Jodi beat me to the punch line.
I would have suggested taking out all the small words like a, to, the and and.
