Wednesday Wisdom for Writers and Those Who Love Them

"Kill your darlings, kill your darlings, even when it breaks your egocentric little scribbler's heart, kill your darlings." —Stephen King

Earlier this month I killed 10,000 darlings. Last month, 35,000. I'm officially a ms murderer.

(These erasers remind me of scary clowns. Just sayin'.)

It's all better with friends.


  1. Great quote! I have to remember to do that with photographs. Sometimes "delete" is the best option. Remind me to sign into Facebook sometime and show you my friend Nancy's pictures of our clown troupe. We were mildly famous in our small circle back in the day, and there are pictures of me as Krackers. Btw, I still have her suit, although the wig went in a basement flood.

    1. I find it easy to delete poor photographs and duplicates. Others? Not so much.
