I know that writing is sometimes about "killing your darlings", and I'm not even really sure that these stories can be considered my "darlings", but I am in the process of reworking and revitalizing one of the stories for publication. I still think there are some decent nuggets of writing in there even if I have to nuke most of the story to get to them. So in a way I guess I'm falling back on the motto, reduce, reuse, recycle. It may be an even more difficult task to meld the old with the new as opposed to just starting from scratch, but I'm willing to give it a try at least once.
