Good to Begin Well, Better to End Well
How sad! Gary Corby once told me that you're not a true writer until you've really excised your manuscript of all those words you really don't need. I had a beautiful scene at the Pyramids that got chopped in early revisions. It really hurt!
I've chopped about 2K out, throughout. But I think the scene I wrote to replace the one I cut is AMAZING, so I'm not as upset anymore!Yay!
That really hurts, but be proud you were brave enough to kill a darling, and revel in the fact your rewrite is amazing. Don't toss that old scene. You never know when it may come in handy. I plan to use an excised scene for tomorrow's blogfest. :)
It's in an earlier document edition, so nothing is lost forever. :) I have NO idea what I'm posting for the blogfest tomorrow!
