Advise to Revise.
I love revising my work. For me, the hardest part about writing is getting all of my ideas down into some sort of cohesive plot. Granted, like all writers, I can get too attached to a phrase or scene which make it hard to edit. That is why I make a new save file for every time I edit something. It is easier for me to cut things out as long as I know they aren't gone permanently. Writer's Digest has a good article about revision. However, the thing that helps me the most is when I take a step back from it. I have to be able to see my work from an objective point of view. However, if I wait too long, I have a tendency to lose my enthusiasm for the piece and then I give up on it altogether.
