The most powerful short stories and novels are built on a foundation of great scenes. Scenes are the building blocks necessary to tell a story in such a way that the reader is compelled to stay in your imaginary world as long as the story lasts. In this class, we will discuss how to get in and out of a scene efficiently. We'll discuss why rooting our most emotional moments in scenes can provide powerful, poignant experiences in fiction. You will see how scenes can help the reader to understand the characters and the plot. Without great scenes, we are left with a series of incidents that have no real literary value.
