Building

Day 15 of the #FridayWritesBlogChallenge

Today’s Topic: How do you build a scene in your writing?

When crafting a scene, I start by thinking of the ending then I draft an outline and short-list of goals.

It’s important to know where you’re going with your characters and your plot so your writing is focused and efficient.

The same goes for other endeavors. You wouldn’t waste your time writing a business plan you were never going to start or entertain opportunities you were too afraid to follow through with.

Start with the foundation, frame it properly then start with the details that make your project unique. There is electrical, plumbing, drywall, and a number of other things, but the first thing is always the blueprint with the full picture. Your job is to bring the picture to life.
