me staring blankly at my wip: 


Just go straight to the scene. The best advice I ever read, from one of my favorite authors, was to get in to a scene as fast as you can, and get out as fast as you can.

If you’re filling the story with stuff you don’t find interesting, just to bridge gaps, the audience will figure that out. Audiences are pretty smart.

Don’t waste your time, and the audiences, by writing the boring filler. Just get to the good stuff. Audiences will understand that we’re no longer in scene A, and that now we’re in scene B.

It’ll help with the pace, and push the story forward.
