Fast Word Count Fixes

Writers obsess about word count. Many of our publishers have word count limits - both high and low. Being too wordy makes for a hard read, and no one likes that. What follows are a few phrases that can be pared down to make room for better word choices ::

bit down -> bit
lifted up -> lifted
stood up -> stood
in between -> between

go & destroy.
