#writetip I guess I’ve been fishing a lot lately, but Hook, Line and Sinker made me think about how I review scenes.
How about: Hook, Tension, and Point of Scene?
These are three useful things to ask yourself after writing a scene. I write thriller/mystery novels, so the pace has keep moving.
If the scene doesn’t have a hook early on, why would anyone keep reading?
If there is no tension, why would anyone keep reading?
If you can’t state the point of the scene, why did you write it?
As usual, only my opinion . . .
