We'll work on scene and sequel and dialogue and narrative during this class - this is some of the 'harder' stuff - but it is SO great!
I will touch on scene and sequel throughout the class - it does NOT have to be a pure exercise. What I mean is, scene and sequel can be interpreted in many different ways. NORMALLY, scene means present time, action and sequel means thought, emotion. thinking, flashback, etc - all that are told in a non-action manner. I know, it's confusing, but the idea is that they need to be separated purposefully. Most writers do it instinctually, but knowing how these two items work in tandem can really help make or break a book.
The other part is the use of narrative and dialogue. They both are extremely important, based on the style of the writer and of the book, so we'll cover their interaction.
Here are websites for both:
