The abrupt scene break, as I have said before, is my friend. I will hug it and squeeze it and call it "George" and use it as a crutch tool whenever necessary to avoid the tedious boredom of writing out Every. Single. Thing. that happens in a scene, long after that scene has served its purpose. Especially when I don't actually know the process for repairing a dog liver that's had a large-caliber bullet pass through it.
