Shuffling the Puzzle Pieces
For this comparison, please consider a scene of the story to equal one piece of a jigsaw puzzle.
Right now, I am trimming the pieces of my puzzle, going from 86 pieces to approximately 60 pieces, by combining and tightening several scenes.
Also, I will be shifting pieces of the puzzle around, relocating scenes, so that my finished puzzle will look somewhat different than my first attempt at putting the puzzle together.
A challenge, but a fun learning experience never-the-less, with my goal being to shuffle the puzzle pieces so that I end up with a more powerful, more strongly constructed puzzle.
