Re: Dragon: The Tower Of Tamerlane
Interesting. I have never heard of scene charges. My mother is a romance author and I have watched her sketch out a book, but never with scene charges. Thanks for the information!

Now that you've taken the example, and printed it out in black
and white, I can see where scene charges are used in other
genres as well, such as Romance. There are times where it's
not used, and that's in memoirs, because not all auto-
biographies have a happy ending. However, the majority of
genres seem to follow your example, and it was a good one to
follow when writing, so I'll have to remember it. I haven't
had the pleasure of reading any of your books. For personal
reasons I was out of the reading loop for a few years, and have
gotten back in a while back, catching up with who is out there,
and the different genres and so forth. The book you wrote does
sound interesting, and I've put it on my TBR list, even though
it's not a book I'd normally read. If I can't get into the
story, which I hope isn't the case, I have a Husband who is a
big sci-fi freak, and inhales books, so I know he'd love it!!
Congratulations on your latest book, and I'm sure it will do

No I have not heard of scene change.

Since I am in no way a writer, just a reader, scene charges are a new concept for me. Now I will probably be watching for them!

Scene charges...was interested to read about it. Would
certainly keep the story interesting.

I haven't heard of scene change before, but it seems to be
something inherent in all plotting. For most readers, it
exists under the radar, and this is the first time that
I've seen the idea vocalized.

every trade has tools, it makes perfect sense yours should,

don't think so but sounds good
(Debbi Shaw 8:52pm September 26, 2015)
I'd love to win the book.
(Dagmar Finch 8:56pm September 26, 2015)
Never heard of scene charges but would still love to read your books
