The transition from one scene to another, or the return to a scene after an interjection of exposition always seems so natural when I'm reading a novel, but when it comes to writing I often struggle. I have an example from my latest project where I describe my character taking his form to the jobcentre (welfare office) After this he will call at the sandwich shop for a bite to eat. But in between these two scenes he explains to the reader how, twelve months earlier, he'd been working in a factory and living a fairly comfortable life. After this short section of background information I'd like to take the reader back into the action (as he calls at the sandwich shop) but the way I have it is horribly clumsy and maybe even confusing to the reader. I know this is a tough one to try and address, and maybe it's an area that will only improve with practice, but I do find it stumps me very often. Any advice, tips very much appreciated.
