So I've written my dramatic opening scene, and now I just need to tie up loose ends and move on. However, I'm finding that this lacks conflict, and is becoming dull to write and boring to read. Are there any tips for this stage of writing? Setting scene. My MC has overcome an event, and knows his next goal, he has met someone who he doesn't trust, but who can help him. He now needs to move on and travel to next scene. I'm not sure if the additional character should come with him, or just to move on. I do need to write about the transportation from one place to another, but afraid it has no hook.
