At first I was cutting some words here and a small section there. I added my changes to my document on the computer and saw that I still had 10 PAGES worth of script to cut! Alas! Alack! This was a tragedy!
Second time through, I was kind of on a rampage. I couldn't take forever to cut the thing. Funny part here? Cut; there were already funny parts in the script. Poetical & flowery language about love? Forget it; gotta get to the root, the essence of the thing. Finally I got done and it worked out okay.
And thus I see why some of my own novels remain un-edited: I either don't want to cut down to the essence...or that's all I have left. *sigh* Back to work.
