About the book:
You’ve felt the pulse-pounding drama of a good story, turning pages at a furious clip, caught up in a book so real, you feel as though it is happening to you. What makes that story, book or essay come to life? Strong, powerful scenes. Make a Scene is a guide on how to write a strong narrative—story or novel—one scene at a time.
With precise instruction, examples from bestsellers, unique exercises, and scene-writing tips from successful authors, this book shows readers how to craft each scene so that it renders a vivid emotional punch, establishes and maintains tension, and propels the reader forward.
Jordan E. Rosenfeld is author of the writing boook Make a Scene, a contributing editor to Writer’s Digest magazine, and a freelance writer and manuscript editor. Her articles, essays and reviews have been published in numerous publications including Alternet.org, The St. Petersburg Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, and The Writer, and her book reviews are regularly featured on NPR-affiliate KQED Radio’s “The California Report.” She’s co-founder of “Write Free!” a method to help people attract a creative life, which has spawned the book, with Rebecca Lawton, Write Free: Attracting the Creative Life (BeijaFlor Books) and a bi-monthly newsletter.
