What is the most important thing that a writer struggles with while writing their novel? If you said scenes then you are right. For some writers scenes are easy to write but for others writing scenes are a challenging and difficult beast to wrangle . What does the scene do in the novel?
Scenes like every other component in the novel are important to the overall structure. Without a scene there is no novel. Well there can be a story but not a novel.
A novel is made up of consistent structural building blocks called scenes. How many scenes in your novel is determined by how long your story is within the word count but comes together at roughly 50-60 scenes within the whole novel. The scenes are there to do one important thing which is to move the story forward .
Within a single scene there should be high moments . This is where there is a main objective purpose of the scene taking place. Having high moments within a scene is also important because you have to know why you are writing the scene in the first place. Like I said earlier the scene must move the story forward. So if you don’t have a high moment it cannot move the story forward .
Examples of a high moment is a:
- plot twist.
