I often tell folks that in order to write you have to be willing to reject your own work. Sometimes what you’ve written just isn’t right for a project, and you have to let it go.
Today I was tested on that point, as I had to throw out two chapters of Dreamseekers. It was really frustrating, since I’m within weeks of needing to finish this thing, but they just weren’t what the book needed. POV was just all wrong. AARRRRGH
