When does cutting hurt the voice? Are you a minimalist who must flesh out the story? I can think of several examples where the protagonist's voice wouldn't be her own if the author had wielded a scalpel like Hannibal--Ida B comes to mind.
Are you a staunch pro-cutter? What happens if you cut a major plot artery? What if the voice bleeds off the page?
What do y'all think?
