Sometimes it's what's left unsaid that matters most. That's why I used my unused words wisely.

Actually, My first draft came in at 248. Then I edited it down for concision and it ended up at 255. I chalk it up to a glitch in the matrix. Currently sitting at 250 even. I am hoping if I let it marinate for a bit, it will soak up some of those words so I'll have space to add 'btw: This all took place in 1930 in case it wasn't clear kaythanksbye."

So, if I don't use all the words allotted to me, can I sell the un-used ones?
Is there a post like the beta reads for this?
