Writing Tip of the Month

A story is made up of words, sentences, paragraphs, scenes, and chapters.  A scene is a small story within your story.  It has a beginning, a middle, and an end.  It is hooked to the previous scene and the following scene by transitions.  I often find transitions difficult to write but they are vital in keeping the reader mindful of where he or she is in the story.  The lack of a transition, or a poorly written one, can leave a reader grasping for place, time, and even viewpoint.
