I've got a particular, um, steamy scene that I'd like to retain as fully as possible. However, nothing that actually happens in the midst of the scene is, well, critical to the plot, apart from the fact that it does happen. Do I keep it, or do I edit it to bare bones? As it stands, it's good. It's probably one of the more evocative love scenes I've ever written. However, there are more important things to deal with, such as, oh, I dunno, THE PLOT.
What do I do? Anyone? Bueller? Should I retain it for now? It's going to hurt if I have to remove this one.
Must run. Have an appointment across town in half an hour. Thank Elvis for highways.
