sometimes you have to kill your babies

Someone once told me that “sometimes you have to kill your babies” meaning that sentences or moments you are attached to sometimes must be sacrificed in order to make a story better. As to my previous post, I have decided to skip all of the crap of getting my characters to the bar. It is a flashback and no important information is gained aside from a description of Art.

I am also considering changing the viewpoint to 3rd person.

    Stephanie said “Don’t fall in love.” And she said it with that characteristic expression of hers, the one with the big smile on the verge of a giggle, like fiction writing was the most delightfully ridiculous thing and falling in love would be taking it too seriously.
    It’s good advice. I fall in love anyway, though.

    Oh…I guess she said that to me in our meeting then. I certainly remember the phrase as I was unsure what she meant. I thought she was going all Jonathan Swift on me.
