Tidbits and Nuggets – Scenes

  • 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!”

Tidbits and Nuggets – Editing

Editing Tip:

R.U. E

Or, better known by editors as, “Resist the Urge to Explain.”

“It’s best to resist the urge to explain. If the emotion isn’t shown, rewriter the passage so that it is.”
