Throwing Work Away

Bono in an eulogy (I think) for Leonard Cohen said that Leonard probably threw away work that most songwriters would have been proud to have written. This verified my thoughts that part of the creative process is editing your work by throwing it away.
In 2010ish I read that William Blake and the Desert Fathers threw away their artwork. At the time, I was like I could never do that. Now I’m feeling cleansed and proud that I have so much stuff I don’t mind getting rid of the stuff I don’t like.
