40 out of 64 scenes. Yeah, I guess all my scenes-smushing was offset by extra scenes or something. Still, almost two-thirds of the way there is nothing to be sneezed at!
The last 4 or 5 scenes have been hard. It’s not that they’re total rewrites (I’ve been doing that since scene 2 :P); it’s that they’re replacing passages that I particularly like. Those included spot-on description, sparkling dialog and one plot twist I really enjoyed. I’m having a hard time letting those go, even though they don’t fit my current story arc.
How’s your progress?
