Blizzard and the Fourth Scene

If I took a pic of my car, this is what it would look like.

Blizzard peoples! About a foot and half of snow, maybe two feet in spots, possibly higher. High, high snow drifts. Cars are just a shape under the snow. Not sure how many streets are clear – I doubt any side streets are. There were impassable streets even in the city, which is pretty damn amazing, as snow disappears there so fast you can barely tell it snowed. The subway is barely running, which has pretty much shut down the city. The subway people ought to called emergency workers, just like the police and firefighters and ambulances. Bet nothing is open today. They are trying to defrost the third rail. Lots and lots of blowing snow. Good day to go sledding.

NBC has pictures here.

Back to my regularly scheduled program. 😉

So . . . I spent the blizzard working on the fourth scene for the short dragon story. It is done and it does not look good for the baby dragon. In fact, I am beginning to wonder how much of the third scene is even necessary. Not a lot, I don’t think. I am going to have to cut most, if not all, of it. I am winding down to the end; there is only one or two more scenes left. I am a little depressed now because I have no idea how the girl is going to save the baby dragon.

Do other people have this problem? Wanting to end the story one way, but a different ending makes more sense. A different, more depressing ending. I don’t like depressing endings and I would rather not end this story that way.
