    I just need to learn how to write a single effective scene.

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by waitingforzion, Jan 28, 2016.

    I don't think it is best for me to practice writing full length stories, getting them critiqued, and repeating the process. I think I need to master writing a scene first, and then put scenes together into a story.

    How do I learn how to write a scene? Are there any good books or sites, preferably ones I can read for free.

    Honestly I just googled "constructing a scene" and gave them brief a glance over, but:
    I'm sure you can find a lot of helpful stuff that way. Some of it will be inapplicable or just plain garbage advice, sure, but figuring out how to sort out the chaff is part of the learning experience too.
    Foxe and Imaginarily like this.
