I've been working on my novel - read some stuff on how to create a good scene - Have a Goal, Conflict, Disaster, Reaction, Dilemma and Decision. But didn't find any real good tips on showing condensed information. I.e. time passing, a changing relationship, adapting to a new job. Should I keep the same format for this condensed scene or let it be more free-form? First drafts on my former novels have been very free form - some of the descriptions and thoughts were great but mostly it seemed rather haphazard. Anyone got any ideas?
