I've just discovered the most fabulous excellent rewriting tool ever. It's...
The Backwards Read
What you do, is you hold your script up to a mirror and... naah. Just kidding.
What you really do is go through your script scene-by-scene, starting with the last scene and moving towards the first.
This allows you to really view the scene as a separate entity, and make sure it contains all the drama, action, suspense, conflict, and character it needs, without any reliance on the other scenes.
Later, when you re-enter the forward world, you can check for flow and all those lovely forward-looking things.
Buying tickets to see Crowded House in Vancouver in September. They're playing at the first venue I ever saw them in, 20 years ago. Total blast from the past.
