Kill Your Darlings

Hello everyone!

Like me, you’ve probably heard the phrase, “kill your darlings” enough times to want to strangle the next person who says it.  Nevertheless, the overall quality of any piece does improve when these extra words, characters, scenes, etc. are removed.  Follow the link to a blog post by Tara Lazar containing guidelines for which “darlings” should be eliminated as soon as possible: https://taralazar.com/2016/04/20/killing-darlings/.

Happy writing!

Katie
