Kill your darlings
"...I began writing 'Lost' with a scene that would ultimately be vetoed by my editor. It was a scene that I was proud of, so of course it had to go. The scene was written from the point of view of a dog that is the victim of a hit and run. I described the dog's visions as he was dying on that Corsican road. In the end I managed to sneak the scene back in further on in the novel and it went to press undetected by my editor. I still think it's one of the best things I've written."
