Gotham writers and scenes


A peaceful scene in a local churchyard - and all those lovely shades of green showing nicely.
Now for scenes -
each must have 3 things - relevance to the MDQ, a clash of objectives plus a structure of its own.
Relevance -move the plot along, either by introducing conflict or adding character depth
Conflict - tension or struggle of some kind
Structure - keep objectives out of reach, force the protagonist to shift tactics
Linked Scenes then form sequences. Simple. Ha! Now to try doing it!

Well, talk is cheap. Doing it is hard, as if we didn't know.
