Is it just me or is anyone kinda overwhelmed going into draft two of their long play? I was afraid to look at all the notes because I want to make so many edits and I find the task extremely daunting, lurking like the Sword of Damocles. There's so much I want to cut or embellish, the possibilities are overwhelming me somewhat. I'm having a hard time trying to jump back into it and pick up on a scene in the middle of the play and just play around with it.
I think what I'm going to do is separate my scenes and save them all as separate files so I can see them alone and focus on editing and rewriting one scene at a time. I always want to conquer the entire script at once and I think that is why I have been so intimidated to do my rewrites. If I approach it like the short plays at the beginning of the semester and just take it one bit at a time I think it will chug along fine.
Are there any successful tips or strategies for rewrites that have been particularly helpful to you guys?
