For Day 2 , I chose this quote by Stephen King.
I studied this book “On Writing” a few years ago. From my experience, I have trouble editing my writing and taking out the un-necessary stuff that interferes with the flow of the story. Especially if it’s something I worked so hard on so Stephen King’s book was really helpful in that matter.
I’m highlighting this quote because it’s a reminder for me to edit and re-write even if it’s a piece of writing that I love, after killing my darlings the result is much better.
Let me add that sometimes the things I kill from my writing return more powerful into a scene that fit them perfectly. Other times they’re gone for good and that’s okay as long as you keep trying to get it right.
I want everyone to participate so I’d like to start a discussion in the comments below about your favorite quotes. Looking forward to read your quotes. 😀
