Redux: Day 7

I had a hard time getting started this morning, so Bacon took the girls and I to brunch. I came home and worked from noon until 4:00.  That was when I got to a note in the middle of page six that said TRANSITION. Usually, this means I add a few lines to get from Point A to Point B.  

Not this time. I didn’t agree with the thing the character was getting ready to do, so I went to the supermarket.  I came home an hour later with groceries. Then, I sat down again and read the end of the scene.  I have two choices:

  1. Write the scene the way I planned, adding two lines of transition connecting Point A with Point B.
  2. Rewrite the last three pages to reflect how I believe the heroine would really react after surviving the first 2/3 of the story.

Hmm. I guess I’ll be working on these pages again tomorrow.
