I'm having difficulty assembling individual scenes into a comprehensive story. I have no difficulty working with the big picture of the narrative (e.g. The main conflict is A, the point of the story is B, the ending is X) or writing small, individual scenes (A walks over to B and they converse, argue, then fight etc). But when it comes to stringing scenes together to make the plot, I find myself at a loss as to where to begin. I can certainly appreciate the basics, (beginning, middle, end, etc.) but beyond that I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing. Should this character reveal their plot-relevant secret in the same installment as another character coping with the death of a loved one? Is it better to resolve conflict A at the midpoint, or at the end alongside conflict B? How many simultaneous threads at one time is too many? If there are multiple characters with arcs and development, all independent of the larger plot, how do I work with each of them equally and still keep the story rolling? I'm basically asking for advice about narrative construction in general, but especially regarding works with multiple episodes/installments; works made up of smaller, individual stories that all fit into a larger whole. I recall asking for help about this topic once before in another thread, but it was a fair while ago and I'm not sure where the dickens it's gone to. I hope starting a new one like this is alright.
