Helping Writers Become Authors: Structuring Your Story’s Scenes, Pt. 8: Options for Reactions in a Sequel

Helping Writers Become Authors: Structuring Your Story’s Scenes, Pt. 8: Options for Reactions in a Sequel | Litteris | Scoop.it

At the heart of every sequel is the narrating character’s reaction to the preceding scene’s disaster. This is where the author gets the opportunity to dig around inside his character’s emotional and mental processes and find out what he’s really made of. The scene is about external action; the sequel is about internal reaction. The sequel will sometimes be entirely confined to the POV character’s mind; other times, it will be dramatized through action or dialogue.

This post makes a good point. Have to admit, it took me a minute to realize that Sequel was used to mean the chapter or scene after a big event/action scene. Being a librarian, sequel is a second book. 

Jim Lerman's curator insight, January 28, 2013 1:47 PM

This is a very informative post from a wonderful blog about writing. If you are looking for assistance in how to improve, especially one's fiction writing, this is a very good resource.

Orgulho e preconceito: 200 anos de um livro arrebatador

Orgulho e preconceito: 200 anos de um livro arrebatador | Litteris | Scoop.it

No final do século XVIII, uma jovem inglesa escreveu um romance. Não era algo incomum em sua época, nem era seu primeiro texto de ficção. Como era de costume, ela fez leituras para sua família que, depois de alguns debates, parece tê-lo aprovado. Sua intenção, inicialmente, era a de fazer um romance epistolar, algo muito em voga no período, mas as cartas minguaram dentro do texto, mesclando-se com a narrativa.

Why Do People Pirate E-Books?

Why Do People Pirate E-Books? | Litteris | Scoop.it

Piracy is an endlessly debated topic. Views on it range from “don’t worry about it too much” to “it has a huge impact on sales.” What is often ignored are the reasons why people pirate and, from there, what publishers could do about it.
