The Trouble with Exciting Scenes
Lesson 4 Chapter 1 Module 1
Sometimes the scenes we like the best can lead us astray.
This is less a lesson than a reminder: orientations are still important even in your most exciting scenes!
Make sure you are properly orienting your readers (in relation your protaognist) before your big exciting shocking scene gets going.
Similarly, if your draft is feeling like something just isn't quite flowing, I suggest you can go back to your last BIG scene. Did you miss an orientation?
What happens if you add one in, or expand what you already have?
