This time around, the ladies dive into what makes a scene successful. From the nuances of beginning, middle, and ending (just like a mini-story of its own), to the storytelling foundations of plot, theme, character. Then they dig into story obstacles and revelations.
Anne talks about filler scenes, Tracey emphasizes the importance of setting the right tone, and Jess unveils a “not-template” employed before starting scenes that she is (shock!) pantsing.
