Scene Cards are helpful to writers when they want to capture an idea quickly with just a bit of brief information. You may always come back to the card and add more information later.
You may do these on notecards or on your data base files on your laptop.
Enter the following information for each scene you wish to write in your story:
(1) Give your scene a name.
(2) Viewpoint of which character?
(3) What is the setting? (time and place)
(4) What is the goal of your scene?
(5) What is the opposition to the goal?
(6) What is the strategy?
(7) What is the outcome of the scene?
