Inspirational Writing Quote # 20: Joss Whedon


Joss Whedon

Joss Whedon

Today marks the return of my “Inspirational Writing Quotes” series. This week’s quote comes from writer/direction Joss Whedon, most known for his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Avengers. 

If something isn’t working, if you have a story that you’ve built and it’s blocked and you can’t figure it out, take your favorite scene, or your very best idea or set-piece, and cut it. It’s brutal, but sometimes inevitable.
