Scenes that do nothing?

I had to take my car to the shop today, and I tend to go to a dealership out in the burbs. While I was waiting, I did some writing. It went slowly, but better than over the last few days.

I’m trying to give my characters histories, to show who they were before the story started. It’s… well, I like it, but it definitely means that I’m going to have some major revising to do on earlier scenes.

It’s difficult, though to explain why I’m writing some of these scenes, or rather, to justify them. I suppose that’s what readers are for. I’m still nowhere near done, though, so they’ll just have to wait.
