A couple days ago, my scene draft lacked emotion, so I created an intro (over 500 words of one) with all this power, and then just tried to force the two drafts together like some kind of sick matchmaker. And of course it didn't work. You can't force it like that when the ideas are based on different progressions. So instead of forcing a pattern that doesn't work, I'm looking at the next logical step in the scene's progression and seeing how I can work the info in rather than just blobbing two things together and going "good enough."
We all want things to be a certain way in our writing and in life. But sometimes, what we get is better than what we wanted anyway. We just need to let nature take its course.
