You'll learn how to:
•Craft an opening scene that hooks readers and foreshadows supporting scenes •Develop various scene types--from the suspenseful to the dramatic to the contemplative--that are distinct and layered •Tailor character and plot around specific scene types to better convey the nuances of your storyline •Create resonating climactic and final scenes that stay with readers long after they've finished your work

This book is very, very helpful and rich and full of so much insight. It delves deep into the process of structuring scenes. It is by far the most helpful book I have read on scene building.
Summary: excellent! Rating: 5
I was delighted with the information the book provided. It answered a lot of questions that I had on how to write scenes.
I am used to writing articles, 40 published, but I am working on my first novel. I needed this book. Articles and novels are two different animals.
It was very easy to understand. There was no driftwood to get in the way.
If it is gauged by my highlighting, it is all usable information.
My son who is also a writer thumbed through it and promptly borrowed it. I may have to buy another copy.
