A scene is a place where events (real or fictional) take place. It can also be a description of an event, or a continuous portion of a play, film or book – those are usually what we mean be a scene in writing.
If you display strong emotions in public then you could be accused of making a scene. The view or landscape can also be considered a scene. Is the photo a tranquil woodland scene, or about to become the scene of the crime?
A scene can also be a way of life, subculture or interest.
Today, I'm one of the Insecure Writer's Support Group co-hosts along with J.H. Moncrieff , Natalie Aguirre and Chemist Ken who're all supporting our Ninja Captain Alex.
This month's optional question is – If you could use a wish to help you write just ONE scene/chapter of your book, which one would it be? (examples: fight scene / first kiss scene / death scene / chase scene / first chapter / middle chapter / end chapter, etc.)
I have several free to enter writing competitions for you today. Whether you enter this sci-fi/horror short story competition, these stage and radio play competitions, this one for prose up to 17,000 words or even the monologue competition, you'll probably need scenes in your work.
Is entering writing competitions your scene? (If it is, keep coming back – I add more free entry ones most weeks.)
