As I attempt draft 2 of my WIP I've been pondering how to work out which scenes are relevant to the story. I have been surprised when someone has commented that a particular scene might not be relevant (my wip hasn't been read by others yet, but discussed, and my previous WIP was read aloud to various groups). I think it's likely partly working out what story I'm telling and what I consider relevant, which might be genuinely different from a reader, and partly learning to tell the chaff from the grain. Any thoughts or wisdom appreciated.
