What is the single most important practice of high-volume fiction writers?

They ensure they have a coherent progression of scenes before they start writing. This means shaping the raw events of your story into a compelling list or storyboard of scenes.


What do writing character and writing action have in common?

Basically it’s who does what. Both writing character and action happen inside a story arc of problems and decisions from the Inciting Incident to the Crisis. In every case a problem is thrown in the path of the protagonist, who then responds with a decision and action. In a very real sense it is these five problems and decisions that generate the scenes of your novel.

Praise for Story Crisis, Story Climax 2

Story Crisis, Story Climax 2 will make a great addition to any author’s reference library, whether you’re a beginning writer or an advanced writer, this book will be a tremendous asset. As novelists, we learn that every word written must move the story forward. The way this book breaks down the scenes of a movie to show how this should be accomplished was an eye opener for me. It’s wonderful to learn something new, or a new way to do something, and Story Crisis – Story Climax 2 scores high in both cases.” – Creagle, Amazon reviewer

Frame the events of your novel with a cinematic precision. Use one visually rich mise-en-scene after another to hit the plot points between your story’s vital two decisions. It’s a wrap!
