Killing Your Darlings

That’s what I have problems with. I can cut out the crap, the smalltalk that doesn’t bring anything to the story, but I’m afraid of re-writing scenes that should be re-written, scenes that are so fabulous that I dare not touch them, but untouched they don’t fit into the manuscript. Simply, the Editor-writer hat doesn’t fit my head. Help!
