FICTION FOCUS: Need help writing a powerful scene?

SCENES are the building blocks of your chapters. If they fall flat, your readers most likely will put your book down. So writing powerful scenes with unique characters who have believable backstories and and different goals is crucial to a powerful story, one that keeps readers turning pages. And just like with anything about writing, we learn to write powerful scenes as we write and study the craft.

The Christian Writers Guild wants to help you grow as a writer and is offering a webinar on how to write powerful scenes on Thursday, April 25 from 8-9 p.m. EST.

In "Raising the Stakes: How to Write High Energy Scenes" author and Craftsman mentor DiAnn Mills  outlines the seven key areas in which you should build tension and drama:
  • character
  • plot
  • dialogue
  • emotion
  • setting
  • symbolism
  • narrative

(This webinar will also be recorded and be available for download on our website within two business days of the live event.)

DiAnn Mills has fifty books in print and has sold more than 1.5 million copies. She is a founding board member for American Christian Fiction Writers and a member of Advanced Writers and Speakers Association.
