Tidbits and Nuggets

  • What Makes a Scene?
  • It takes place in real time.
  • Have settings – specific locations readers can picture.
  • Contain some action – something happens.

“You want to draw your readers into the world you’ve created, make them feel a part of it, make them forget where they are. You can’t do this effectively if you tell your readers about your world secondhand – You have to take them there!”
