THE SCENE BOOK: A PRIMER FOR THE FICTION WRITER

The scene is the basic building block of fiction, and it is essential to understand how it works, how it can be constructed, and what makes it memorable. Scofield explains the scene in a patient, friendly, and instructive way, with a wide range of terrific models and exercises. Users say they almost wear their copies out.
