I know, I know… it’s a cardinal rule and I broke it. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER edit your draft until the entire draft is done or your draft will always be under construction. I know… But the idea to make more of the conversation at the wagon to allow time for Earnest to prowl along the trees hit me like a flash and I had to do it or lose it.
So, I invite you to take another look at the scene I just posted and tell me what you think of the conversation between the two young folks at the wagon and whether it fits, if it helps the scene, if I’ve integrated it properly into the scene I had written, all that stuff. Thanks!
