There’s all or nothing, but also some somewhere in between. Sometimes you have to admit that one of the parts you love just isn’t fitting and pull it out. Maybe it has a life of it’s own elsewhere, but trying to force it in risks the overall of everything else. I guess on some level that’s editing. It’s admitting that no matter how much you love a part it doesn’t make the project better. You can force it, but don’t want to. Sometimes you have to admit the balance is off and cut something.
