Now the re-building. I'm finding this interesting: if you have a scene written (say) three years ago, you have re-read certain paragraphs without questioning them for awhile. And then, without warning, they lose meaning. Either because what you intended for them to convey is no longer necessary, or you've forgotten what crucial thing they do. The hope is to not cut through arteries, obviously, but to stay awake to what's actually still on the page.
