Until recently I took the quote "kill your darlings" by William Faulkner (least that is one source) to mean edit out excess parts of your story if they don't really fit even if you love them ect... Today out of the blue (well more of a dim black as I was in a dark basement) I realized the the quote could be applied to my life as well. If I truly want to change my life from where I am and someday be able to make a living off of writing, then I myself need to "kill my darlings" those pesky part of it that holds me back from real progress. I am not much for facebook so that not an issue but I do find myself watching a bit to much videos on you tube and possibly drinking to much wine before I put in some writing time. Other then that it's also about leting go of the ideas that just are not forming right even some of the ones that have been simmering on the back burner for a bit to long. The final and I think the largest darling of them all is my depression and negativity they combined effort have held me back more then all else combined.
