Things I think about #3 : What did it do?

08 Nov

This is another instalment in the Things I think about when I write series.  I can’t recall where I read/heard this advice, but it goes something like this…

Whenever I write a scene, it needs to do one of two things: (1) Advance the plot or (2) Develop a character.

So after each scene I write, I ask myself whether it did either of those things.  And if not, then what did I hope to achieve with that scene.

Of course, there might be other purposes.  What do you ask your writing to do?
