Wrote more of the same scene. My scenes are kind of long and they are filled with a lot of dialogue but I do believe its necessary based on the mystery afoot. It's an enormous mystery with so many questions that need to be answered along the way. I honestly wonder if they are long enough sometimes to make sure readers aren't too much in the dark.
Listen to a master class yesterday that might help with the idea of longer scenes. Dan Brown talked about the nature of location and how it can do the 'heavy lifting'. In other words a scene in the right place adds tension that wouldn't be there otherwise, something for me to think about to keep the scenes moving that are more 'talking heads'.
