on The Write Practice:
Kisses. Bloody fights. Huge confrontations.
They’re the best parts of a story, right?
You wouldn’t be crazy to think so. And yet the best parts of a story aren’t always what you think. Your favorite scene — whether it be one of action, confrontation, fighting, or sex — is probably not your favorite because of the raw details.
It’s your favorite because of the build-up. And that what you need to master as a writer in order to deliver scenes that will soon become your readers’ favorites!
