Write Scenes that Move Your Story Forward

In Make a Scene, author Jordan E. Rosenfeld takes you through the fundamentals of strong scene construction and explains how other essential fiction-writing techniques, such as character, plot, and dramatic tension, must function within the framework of individual scenes in order to provide substance and structure to the overall story. 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
