K.M. Weiland: Three Building Blocks of the Sequel

Part 7 of the Structuring Scenes series.

The sequel*—the second half of the Scene—sometimes gets short-changed. But it is every bit as important as the scene, since it allows characters to process the events of the scene and figure out their next move. The sequel is the reaction half of the action/reaction pairing. This is where introspective moments, quiet conversations, and character development occurs.
