Type A: The chaotic frying pan

My awesome critique partner gave me a pile of suggestions for how I might shorten my manuscript. Here’s my plan for dealing with them.
If you get my monthly digest, you might know that I recently finished the fifth draft of my work in progress (WIP) and enlisted the help of my wonderful critique partner, Anna Kaling, to figure out how to cut 40k words.
Anna got back to me at 3am this morning, and all I could do before work was read her email in a whirlwind of excitement. (Don’t you hate it when real life gets in the way of writing?)
She had some very encouraging things to say, and she suggested some characters and plot threads that she found less than essential to the story.
I was thrilled by her reaction. Then her suggested excisions sank in.
