Use the Scene Engine to Turbo Charge Your Fiction

If you’re steeling yourself for a daily deluge of 1,667 words required to finish NaNoWriMo this year, you’re no doubt wondering how to keep going when your story hits a rut. Outside of Nano, you might have the luxury of a few days to work through your story challenge, but in November? Uhhhh, no.

So you need tools to rely on and to help you move through the inevitable ruts you’ll encounter along the way to 50k. Enter the Scene Engine. Developed by author and coach Doug Kurtz, the Scene Engine helps you quickly mine the conflict and emotional evolution of a character in a scene. It’s a cool online tool, the details of which Doug broke down in his incredible article on mining every day life for conflict.

Whether or not you use the online tool (you should) reference the below infographic when the going gets tough with your scenes. By keeping these key elements of scene building in mind, and following them when you feel stuck, you’ll be able to more confidently move through your daily word count.
