#1 Writing Epiphany from 2010

I learned a lot in 2010, about life and about my writing. The number one thing I learned in my writing was this:

Anything is worth sacrificing to get the story you want.

Any character, any subplot, any chapter, any paragraph, any sentence, any word is worth tossing--if doing so will get your story where you want it.

But it can be so hard, can't it?


How about you? What is your #1 Writing Ephiphany from 2010?

Don't write what you think you should be writing. Write what you love.
