My son recently pointed out an article in Behance Magazine, called Tip: Send Ideas to the Graveyard on his blog, Prairie Mod. They write about how we sometimes cling to ideas. It doesn't matter if they're good or bad ideas. There comes a time when those ideas need to be destroyed. We need to kill them, so to speak. As writer's, don't you sometimes think you need to send your writing to the graveyard?
Behance: If idea generation is an addiction then killing ideas is the cure.
After spending countless hours developing and polishing ideas, we tend
to become attached to those same ideas (whether they are good or bad).
The result can be a great deal of wasted energy and effort. It's time
to sever ties with (some of) our ideas and send them to the graveyard!
