Quote Monday

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!
