Pictofigo_-_IdeaSo you have your film (or book or poem or song or blueprint) finished. You are ready for the next step in your creation when you have a sudden inspiration – an epiphany – and realize that a major scene (or chapter or line or verse or room layout) would be better served later (or earlier) in your film. It will help clarify or raise the stakes (and the tension) if located in a different, more effective, spot.  So you move it. And then you start to second-guess yourself. Maybe this isn’t better and the original (you know, your first choice) is the best way to go.

How do you deal with these swings in inspiration? How do you determine which way is best?  And then how do you let it go and rest in your decision?
