Never write a dull scene again! Scene & Sequel is like a plotting machine–it shifts reader emotions into high gear and keeps your fans turning the pages. Professor Dwight Swain spent decades figuring out which elements made certain books and movies into blockbusters.
Scene & Sequel is a SUPER powerful tool! But it can be challenging to grasp—and even tougher to put into action. Good news! Kathleen developed an EASY TO UNDERSTAND method. She distilled the process, and in this hands-on workshop she gives you cheat sheets and examples. She’ll walk you through how to apply the power of Scene and Sequel to your current manuscript.
Swain thought he was just analyzing blockbuster stories. Ha! In reality, he identified the psychological elements in ‘Story’ that satisfy emotional cravings in readers or audiences. Kathleen takes the elements he so brilliantly identified (except he made them more complicated than they needed to be) and breaks them down to their juicy essences, clarifies their meaning, and shows you how to apply them in your manuscript. If you build a powerful Scene & Sequel your plot takes care of itself.
Kathleen is proof it works. To date she’s had more than eight producers and directors vying for film options on her books. Her first option was with Ian Bryce, producer of Transformers, Spiderman, Saving Private Ryan, and other blockbusters. A School for Unusual Girls is currently in it’s third option.
