Writing Tip: Never delete ANYTHING!

I’ve heard this a lot and started following it as soon as I heard it. This must be the dozenth time it has saved my bacon. I wrote a scene months ago (and it was posted here on the site), but my plan for the plot changed and I was no longer able to use it. But with the new plot I found a situation similar enough that I was able to reuse it, making appropriate modifications to make it match the new plot. It seems to work pretty well. I’ll get it posted up after a while, since I’ve got errands and political meetings today, but I hadn’t posted in a while and wanted y’all to know what I was up to and that I am still working on the novel.
