Kill All Your Babies
I see now how important it is to kill all my babies. I've got scenes, sentences and phrases that I LOVE in this book, but with my revised heroine & hero motivations, my original words of wisdom no longer fit. So, chop, chop! In the end, I'm realizing what I've cut wasn't that masterful and the new product is a thousand times better for my story. And no, I'm not keeping the snippets because they're specific to these characters and they don't work anywhere else in the manuscript. Back to it!
