While walking Rascal this morning, I saw a scrap truck go by. Lately I've been seeing them more often in the neighborhood. Maybe it's a sign of the times that more people are making money that way.
Anyway in scrap trucks you can see all kinds of interesting items made up mostly of metal, which were considered junk by the owners, but are valuable to scrap collectors. Today, among the contents were a wheelbarrow, an air conditioning compressor, a motorcycle and more.
Seeing the truck made me think about writing scrap. What do you do with yours? You have a good phrase, paragraph, page or maybe a chapter or two but suddenly it doesn't fit in your manuscript. You need to get rid of it.
Are you a saver? Do you keep the scrap in a separate file on your computer in case you need it for another book, do you throw it out, or, if you're charitable, do you offer it to another writer?
