Curiously enough the boring part was the part I had the most advance knowledge of (the part that was planned in any detail). Much the good part was written in a trance and the characters didn't entirely follow the script that I had outlined for them - which may be just as well, considering. One of my problems is that the boring part is important to the story, I can cut to some extent (and probably should), but it can't really just be glossed over, so I have to find another way to tell it.
