Today’s post is not so much a quote as it is a mantra.
I’ve been struggling, no, that’s not the right word (and I’m lying to myself). I’ve been reluctant (yeah, that’s more like it) to cut a few scenes in my pilot because I like them, and I worked them and schmoozed them to get them just right, but I know they need to go. I’ve just been dragging my heels and acting like a five year old with their fingers in their ears saying, “No no no! You can’t make me do it!”
I needed today’s reminder that to in order to create a great story, we have to be brave enough to kill our darlings.
Say it with me:
Wishing you all the best in your writing endeavors! Happy Writing!
