Working on scenes for my NaNoWriMo project. I found this template to be very helpful:
Who’s in the scene (main characters, supporting characters) and why (motivation)?
Where does it take place (setting) and when? Does it fit with the internal clock of the novel (hours, days, weeks…)?
What’s the purpose of including this scene (how does the scene move the story forward?)
Essential descriptions (place, people, atmosphere)
What happens in the scene (plot points, red herrings)?
As the scene closes, what is accomplished?
Does the scene contribute to the exposition or resolution of the central conflict?
Is the scene consistent with your genre? Does it “fit?”
