Here’s a scene rewriting exercise I learned the other day:
2) Edit out 1/3 of the dialogue. Replace the dialogue you have removed with silent action or pauses.
3) See what you’ve got.
You can then repeat the exercise with the new scene: remove another 1/3 of the dialogue and replace with action or pauses. By then the scene will be almost surreal, but you may gain new insights. Give it a try!
