Scene & Structure by Jack M. Bickham

This is the book I'm currently studying all over again. Trying to get my head around scene and sequel is like studying for my fourth year algebra final. Not fun!

I keep thinking of recent novels I've read and can't seem to remember any scene goals popping out at me, but yet, I still wanted to read on. How did the author do it then, without spelling out those scene goals, or at least not making them stand out?

As I work through learning this structure of writing, I think I'll use this blog to summarize what I've discovered through my reading of Jack M. Bickham's writing resource, Scene & Structure. Hopefully it will help many of us grasp the concepts of Scene and Sequel writing.

Blessings to all,
