Sometimes when I’m writing, and I know I’ve probably said this before but it’s an ongoing thing with me so I’m going to bitch about it again…. Sometimes when I’m writing I have a few lines that I think are perfect but it stops right there, well the perfect lines stop but I don’t. I keep going, I keep writing hoping for that moment to strike. What I am left with is a hunk of crap with a sliver of gold sitting in it. So, I choose not to publish it and I move it over into the “Dead Ends” folder. I go back to that folder once in a while and see if there is something I can resurrect. It rarely happens and so I move on to something new.
What do you do with your cast-offs?
Do they ever get a second life, or are they relegated to the Dead End bin forever?
