Linda Sue Park – Scenes: The Building Blocks of Fiction

Newbery Medal winner Linda Sue Park believes scenes are the building blocks of fiction. She writes in scenes, not chapters. She believes Character, Plot, and Setting are interconnected and cannot be separated.

Each scene shows the character’s progress or impediment (both internal & external). Characters are acting or reacting in each scene.

The level of progress/impediment in your story changes depending on what type of story you are telling.
