A companion book to THE SCENE BOOK: A PRIMER FOR THE FICTION WRITER.
Scofield, a novelist, critic, and teacher, illustrates how to read one’s manuscript with a view of its intention, subject, and vision; how to take it apart and put it back together again--deeper and better.. She illustrates concepts like narrative structure, character agency, Core Scenes, scenarios and scene sequences.
Her advice is generously supported with references and models. She provides a step-by-step process, illustrations, and a wealth of encouragement. Writers familiar with other writing books, or experienced with workshops, will find fresh ideas and amplification of familiar concepts here. They will also find a keen practicality and a depth of analysis to augment writing, workshop, and publishing experience. In the end, they will feel they have found a mentor.
