Hey, Jackie, great minds think alike. I just did something like you suggested this morning. I'm cutting 50 frackin' pages and writing 3 new chapters. Lifting up from the line editing really helped. I could finally see how chaotic my scenes were- way too much stuff that didn't forward either the story action or the character development. I couldn't see it when I was down in it. Funny, now that I am in lifted up mode, I dread going back down into the weeds to write the scenes. Maybe it's my age but it's hard adjusting near and far vision. Like I need writing bi-focals. What a weird brain process art is!
