Kill Your Darlings.
I only have a few more chapters of Monday's Child, a follow on novel from my published traditional Regency Novel Sunday's Child to write, but the most recent one didn't read well. I've had to murder my darling - a twist in the plot that I wanted to use but I had to kill it. This morning, I wrote half of the new version, which reads much better, but it was very hard to relinquish my darling idea. Nevertheless, having made the decision I feel liberated.
