do not discard what you create

I learned the hard way to keep ‘unused scenes’, bits of dialogue or descriptions, clips, and phrases, etc, of my writing. Now I have a folder on the hard drive named ‘unused’. It’s full of documents and subfolders full of documents. I learned these things can be reworked, remolded, edited, and used elsewhere. In writing, not much is ever truly ‘wasted’.
