Description

A scene by scene is a method used to break down a larger story into smaller chunks or incidents. Each scene should be advantageous to your overall plot, but should also be able to stand well on its own as a unit of action.

This nano course is inspired by a series of successful Scribble Nation Workshops! The learning objective of this nano course is to identify and understand the values of a scene by scene, particularly in relation to:

  1. Planning your creative project.
  2. Refining and remaining in control of your story structure.
  3. Exploring ways of managing your time effectively, so that you’re writing regularly and reaching your goal of finishing that novel, script, essay, anthology, blog, etc, in a way that is realistic and exciting!
Who this course is for:
  • Maybe you have a story idea that frequently pops in you head, but time constraints, a lack of confidence and other priorities make it difficult to sit down at a desk and bring the story to life on the page.
  • Perhaps you wish you were farther ahead — you’ve drafted notes for your manuscript, autobiography, blog or business plan, but despite best efforts, your story structure is haywire.
  • Does a combination of all the above resonate with you?

This meditation exercise  is great for creative motivation. Although it's designed for the morning, I've used it at various points in the day. When I'm anxious or flustered, this is like my virtual stress ball!
