The bad news: that's four pages of what will be 400 or so. No amount of cutting or editing will remove all the content I have planned, and the content I have planned is only covering half, since I have plenty of material for the sequel too.
So I need to do more, there.
Not much else of note today, though I did think of a really killer (albeit creepy) string instrument remix of the Mocking Bird song. (You know, hush little baby, don't cry a word? That song? Well, in my head, I mentally composed a short tune using those notes, just broken up into different instruments, and the effect is pretty dang cool.) Now if I could only just MAKE the darn thing.
