How to progress scenes ?
« on: October 07, 2017, 08:31:59 PM »
I'm having trouble with my writing I find myself at times going from one scene to the next but I feel like I keep rushing from scene to scene I want it to be a build up and then something happens. Any advice you guys can give to help me out with this? something that'll make my scenes seem like they happen at a good pace instead of them seeming rushed?

Well, a scene needs to fulfill a purpose. Once that purpose is fulfilled, you move on. If all your scenes feel rushed, it could be that you have an overly complicated plot. Or purhaps you need to roll multiple purposes together. Can two separate ideas be combined into one? There are a lot of reasons this could be, and the only real way to understand is through review of what you have written, and what your plans are. Perhaps doing a simple plot outline can help you see from 10,000 feet, what you aren't seeing on the ground.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

This makes a lot of sense I'm not sure why I didn't think of It but I'll try this. Thank you!
