Lecture no. 20 from the course: Writing Great Fiction: Storytelling Tips and Techniques

Building Scenes

Taught by Professor James Hynes | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

A good scene serves two functions: it advances the larger narrative, and it’s interesting in its own right. How do you build compelling scenes? How do you transition from one scene to the next? Learn the fine art of moving from point to point in your narrative so that your story remains smooth and compelling.
