Draft One Mistakes: First Edition

I have come to realize that I made an entire four-page chapter of characters walking… no important dialogue, no character development, no plot furthering, no humor. It was literally just them walking and noticing they were in a forest. FOR FOUR. ENTIRE. PAGES.

I have so many questions.

Like, “What was going on in my brain at this point in my life?”

“Why did I decide this was important?”

“What compelled me to even want to write this chapter?”

This was not a Dragonball Z episode, this was a legitimate writing by me a year ago. What was I doing? Was this written during finals or something?

I understand that I liked the whole slice-of-life concept, but this is just too much.

Someone help me.
