Changeling Cut Scene Thursday #3: even less about the jeans
It’s Cut Scene Thursday again! We’re still spoilerific around here, so watch for that cut tag.
This is the second version of Matt shopping for jeans in a thrift shop. In the second version, like in the final draft, there’s more going on plot-wise and the thrift store is just the backdrop. A lot of the background and relationships have already been established, so I had to sacrifice some of the details.
Kevin called him Mattie a lot earlier in the final version of the book. The scene is all about Matt stepping away from his old life in a deliberate choice, but it ultimately had to get scaled back and go in a different direction. I still love the banter between them–in all versions.
Changeling Cut Scene Thursday #2: it’s not really about the jeans
It’s Cut Scene Thursday again! There are more spoilers than last week here under the cut tag.
This scene happens in a thrift store where Matt goes shopping for jeans. In the first draft, the scene happened a lot earlier and Matt and Kevin barely know each other, and things unfold differently with Matt needing to get a blood test done. There’s another draft before the final version that I’ll be posting next week.
Changeling Cut Scene Thursday #1: Really good curry
It’s Cut Scene Thursday! I’ve decided that’s going to be a thing for the next four weeks.
