movie clapperScene work is the backbone of any story. When your scene work is strong, your reader is pulled into the story such that he/she forgets everything else. In this class by Rachel Weaver, you’ll bring in one of your scenes and will reshape it according to a check list of what makes great scene work, including, but not limited to: effective control over the point of view, ways to open and close scenes smoothly, walking the tightrope between telling and showing, tying one scene to another to create a watertight plot, and what to do with that back story.
