I've killed my darling.

I recently had to abandon a project lately, it broke my heart as I have poured years into it. But when I looked back to earlier parts of it, I could see that my writing had evolved and progressed to the point where I was disgusted with how badly they were written. In the end, I found that it was unsalvageable and decided to set it aside and start fresh. I'll move onto the next project and revisit this one at a later date.

It’s a good feeling though.

One thing I would recommend prior to moving on, is to write down all the reasons you chose to bail. Should you choose to re-write the story from scratch, you'll have a checklist of pitfalls to avoid or rework. Good luck with your next project!
