It's SO TRUE!
Sometimes we feel (or at least I do) that we're not going to do a scene justice. That if we try to force ourselves to write, the only thing that's going to come out is garbage.
Okay, so we may get garbage. We may, in the future, end up highlighting a huge section of our manuscript and hitting "delete," as I talked about earlier this week.
But sometimes, as unlikely as it seems, going through that garbage is what leads us to the uncovered jewels in our novels.
And if you're always convinced you're going to write garbage, you may miss the moments when you write something truly spectacular.
Has sifting through the garbage ever helped your writing?
