Is that a sign you should chop it out? I'm at a part where the most logical course of events involves a two-part police interview after an incident where two of my MCs kill a couple of thugs in self-defense. The thing is, this interview isn't going to go anywhere. The MCs aren't even going to go to court for this. It's a serious moment so I feel like I shouldn't try and throw humor in there; the only reason I feel I need the interviews is: for the first one -- to show that the investigation is taking place and that the police aren't going to be speciesist (speciest? specieist?) in their work; for the second one -- to give some closure to the whole event and let the readers know what happened to the thugs my MCs didn't kill. I don't know. Should I just buckle down and write some scenes I think are boring, or just write that the scenes happened in a couple of paragraphs of "tell don't show" and instead focus a bit more on the mental trauma of my central MC about the incident? Either way, I feel like those bits won't reflect my best work, because on one hand I can't get into the scenes and on the other I'm brushing them under a rug.
