Deleting the Unfinished WorkWritten by Catherine Rankovic
In fact I've started deleting. I asked advice about this, and was told, "Copy down the good lines you wrote before you delete. You might be able to use those good lines in other poems." In the larger scheme of things, what are my 100 or so unfinished poems but monuments to vanity and neglect? Is that what I want around me right now? Don't think so.
Writer, with 30+ years' writing and publishing experience, 20+ years' teaching experience. Last book read: Mrs. Lincoln by Catherine Clinton.

Consider burning them. A very liberating ritual.

I am going through the same process. I have this crazy fear that I could die and all the crap poems would still be there!
