Killing our darlings

Though I hate to do it, sometimes it’s for the best. I’m working on book three of my Ysabel series and was stuck trying to fit in a long scene that I liked, but it overly complicated the story and trying to make it work was pushing a boulder uphill.

Once I got rid of it, the story stood up in my mind and I could see it in its entirety, which has never happened to me before.

That was a great moment and that is the prize, to see the story appear, sound and whole.
