When Not to Extend a Scene

[personal profile] dialecticdreamer and I got into a fascinating discussion about when not to extend a scene, based on Part 3 of her story "Clearing the Air."  Scroll down to our comments and you'll see us picking apart why we both agree that Tran's part is finished, even though both of us have a tendency to extend scenes or revisit bit characters. I'm very gratified that we managed to pin it down.  This is a crucial thing to understand for writing complex storylines that may have multiple parts.
