Murder your darlings,
but they won’t stay buried.
You don’t love because the world is lovable;
You love because you are love.
Word Prompt: bury
Inspiration: “Whenever you feel an impulse to perpetrate a piece of exceptionally fine writing, obey it—whole-heartedly—and delete it before sending your manuscript to press. Murder your darlings. But let me plead further that you have not been left altogether without clue to the secret of what Style is. That you must master the secret for yourselves lay implicit in our bargain, and you were never promised that a writer’s training would be easy. Yet a clue was certainly put in your hands when, having insisted that Literature is a living art, I added that therefore it must be personal and of its essence personal.” — Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch. ‘On the Art of Writing.’ via bartleby.com
