So last night I posted about cutting chunks of MS and how I thought it needed to be done, for all that it hurt.  This morning I hit my Google homepage and checked my Reader to find this on the 70 Days of Sweat Blog (they post inspirational quotes to keep us motivated):
"Crossing out is an art that is, perhaps, even more difficult than writing. It requires the sharpest eye to decide what is superfluous and must be removed. And it requires ruthlessness toward yourself — the greatest ruthlessness and self-sacrifice. You must know how to sacrifice parts in the name of the whole."
~Yevgeny Zamyatin
Timely advice, indeed.
