I held onto a completely irrelevent subplot once because I fell in love with my own writing, and with the character I'd created for it. I don't have an editor, but each member in my critique group mentioned it independently. I finally listened to them, and my novel is (obviously) much better without it. The good news is that I've filed away the subplot and the character for use in a future story.

R.J.,

I did the same thing. I keep a folder with everything I've taken out, just in case I can use it in something else in the future.
