I finished my revision of chapter 3 and I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. I'm also really cracking down on uneccessary wordage and passive verbs. I'm like the passive voice exterminator, though I'm not deleting all because you know, they're a natural way of speaking, but I'm keeping it to a minimum.
The one thing I'm sort of iffy about was I really really want to add this scene that is pretty important for character development and also plot related things (and its brand spankin new) and I had deemed chapter 3 the place for this scene, but that was just not happening. I tried to fit it in and chapter 3 wasn't having it, and evicted the scene. The nerve!
Anyway, the pacing of chapter 3, especially the end is pretty good and I don't think I can mess with it anymore, so I think now that this scene will be transferred to chapter 4. Alas.
I better post my stats fast (I've totally neglected teacher prep to finish this chapter-also I watched Glee).
