Want to put on a good SHOW?
Updated: Dec 2, 2022
When I write a scene I want to put on a good SHOW.
SHOW is the acronym I use for the writer on fire method.
SPARK: Every scene you create has to have a spark. The event that will ignite the action.
HEAT: After the spark, you need to create heat under the protagonist's feet. Add fuel to the fire to make them uncomfortable. Start small with paper, then kindling, continue with twigs, and then logs.
OPTIONS: At one point your protagonist will not be able to handle the heat anymore and will need to take a decision on what to do next.
WRAP UP: This is the result of the option your protagonist opted for.
