Yesterday we talked about the art of being ruthless with our writing.

Today, I want to suggest a purpose for those scraps that it hurts you to cut.

Save ’em all!

Yup, when I’m writing I often have two documents open. One for my work in progress and the other for the bits and pieces I know I will inevitably have to edit out.

This is awesome for two reasons:

First, because it eases the pain of cutting bits and pieces I love.

Second, it gives me a stock pile of awesome to recycle into future writing.

Nifty, eh?
