Page-Turning Scenes Leaps Forward

I’ve hit an important milestone with Page-Turning Scenes–my planned “finished” wordcount. Rolled over 15,000 words today.

I’m not finished. There’s so much that’s important in writing a good scene, and while it always looks simple on the surface, it’s when you dig deeper that you discover termites in the foundation and bugs under the rocks.

I’ve found bugs the size of camels and termite mounds that would squash your house–it’s all good.

I’m breaking everything in to clear steps, giving lots of examples and plenty of exercises, and I’m also having a ridiculous amount of fun. Every time I write one of these things, I remember all over again why I love writing so much–you never know it all, but figuring it out is such a blast.

    I can’t wait to receive my copy and get stuck into the exercises. However, I am happy to hang out until you get everything you know into the book.
