Editorial Reviews

Review

"Scenes are the building blocks for any work of fiction, basically they are the DNA sequence that makes a novel un-put-downable and unforgettable reading experience. When writers are able to craft effective, engaging scenes, they can develop a complete, cohesive story -- and a mesmerizing experience for readers. Now in a significantly revised and newly expanded edition, Make a Scene: Writing a Powerful Story One Scene at a Time by Jordan Rosenfeld takes aspiring writers step-by-step through the elements of strong scene construction and demonstrates how the essential aspects of a compelling story (including character, plot and dramatic tension) function within the framework of individual scenes to give momentum to the whole narrative. Make a Scene shows how to: Craft an opening scene that hooks readers and foreshadows conflict; Develop various scene types--from contemplative to suspenseful to flashback--that are distinct and purposeful; Establish characters' intentions within a scene that drive the plot; Transition into new scenes by clearly establishing details of setting, character, and point of view; Create resonating climactic and final scenes that stay with readers long after they've finished your story. This newly revised and expanded edition includes brand-new examples, an increased focus on advancing plot and character development, making it an essential part of any personal, community, or academic library's Writing/Publishing instructional reference collections." --James A. Cox at Midwest Book Review --This text refers to the paperback edition.
