make a scene, take 2

Well I’ve started reading Make a Scene and it is amazingly helpful.  I am learning all kinds of things that I didn’t know before.  For example there are four lines between scenes in a book.  And I learned a concise definition for “Show don’t tell” that I actually understand.  (it’s on page 9)

The best part of the whole book – they have swirlies on the inside of the book as well as the outside.  I am in heaven 🙂

Okay so I’ve only gotten through the first chapter.  But that first chapter has an amazing amount of useful information.  I went back to my book and started to apply some of what I learned.  I didn’t get very far because I needed to go to bed, but something is better than nothing.

I’m going to try and get through Chapter 2 before I fall asleep.  I wonder what I’ll learn next.
