Unfortunately, I think I have to scrap a huge scene with the NYPD Bomb Squad that covers about 2000 words. :(
It's taking too long and it doesn't contribute efficiently to the plot. I already have a lot of inefficient horse stuff going on. I think I need to cut the Bomb Squad scene, even though they're being delightfully mean to Ryo, and Dee is speaking up for him.
I'll give you another update on Wednesday. Hopefully by then I'll have sorted this out.
