Just started yet another version of my 'story'! Only this time using a different system, and it seems like everything I do, it's never simple. My story is a historical, fiction (part true), spy / romance / crime; all wrapped up in the cultures of Irish, French, English, American, including Native American. The timeframe of the back-story is around 50 years. I roughly have my plot (it is not set in stone until I write 'The End'!). I have so far identified 15 chapters, though there are another 10 or so chapters that will probably be necessary. Here is my problem: I'd like to write each chapter through scenes. Does anyone else write this way? Since this method is new to me, where one scene ends and another starts is a little foggy. A simple 'for instance'; my first chapter shows my supporting protagonist looking down from a high hill, very upset, he gazes onto a burnt out wagon where his friends have been killed (scene 1). While still on the hill the protagonist has a heated conversation with a Native American Indian, the Indian leaves (scene 2). The protagonist has a last wistful look at the wagon, he is surprised when he notices an Native American Woman searching for something in the wreckage (scene 3). Am I separating the scenes correctly so that the story flows naturally? The above is a simple example, but I know that as I progress separating the scenes could turn out to be a nightmare if I don't get it right. Thank you for any help.
