This month of daily writing advice will include tidbits, tips, and sometimes tricks. This isn’t a replacement for editing or book coaching, it’s meant as a jumping off point for exploration and thought! I hope it helps! ~Amy
MAKING A SCENE
Most of the time, a novel is a made up of chapters.
A chapter is a collection of related scenes.
When you’re writing a scene keep in mind, it’s capturing a single moment in time in your story, usually in one place. Breaks between scenes within a chapter give you the opportunity to move forward in time, shift POV (if that’s your jam), or change location.
I write in scenes and I outline my scenes. Each scene has to have a purpose related to the goal of the story, in fact, it likely tells a story of its own.
SEE YOU TOMORROW!
