This is going to be the opposite of fun. Mostly, what I wrote during NaNoWriMo has been good, solid material and in the quantities I need. This ep, however, was two scenes shorter than what I needed and sort of drifted all over the place. I didn’t know what I was trying to accomplish in the whole of the episode. And until I know that, it’s impossible to edit individual scenes: how can I decide what needs changing when I can’t find my target?
At this point, I’ve done some paper edits and worked out how and where the added two scenes will fit in. I know what I’m trying to say with the story at this point. This is good, but there’s a long way to go. To that end, I’m recording the rest of the Olympic coverage tonight so I can shuffle off to work on this. I’ve got to get rid of the television one of these days. Just, well, not before the Olympics end.
