We hear it often enough, every story should be written in-scene. We talk about planning our scenes, building our stories in scenes, creating scene maps and so on, but It struck me that my idea of scene has changed a few times, and I'm left wondering what is a scene, literally. I've got a fair idea of what it means to write "in-scene," but for the sake of the thread and ll of us who could stand a better underststanding from those more learned than ourselves, what is writing in-scene? What is a scene as a parcel of the story? How long is it? How many scenes may you find in a chapter (I know this depends on the length of the chapter)? What progresses us from one scene to the next? Smaller "scenelets"? Exposition/narration? I've started this thread just to see how much information we can collect about what (a) scene is, how it works, how to move through scenes, and anything else about scenes that anyone would want to know. Any knowledge is appreciated, as are any additional questions. Thanks in advance! I know some writers here can provide excellent insight and/or point us to some valuable sources.
