This week, I started my second draft, and I took the plunge and tore out Matt's rubbish section. I wasn't happy with it, and it was bugging me. For this, I had to think of a whole new scene. I did a lot of planning for this, and decided that Matt could meet his Auntie and Uncle, and they could almost mirror Matt and Ellie.
I much preferred this new scene, and whilst it took me a long time to plan and write out, I was very happy with the final product. Along with a bit more editing, this was the only thing I did to the second draft.
