    I’ve read on K.M. Weiland’s site that scenes should be formed like this:

    Scene Goal
    Scene Conflict
    Scene Disaster

    Sequel Reaction
    Sequel Dilemma
    Sequel Decision

    Is that a good rule to follow in all stories, or just sometimes?

    I was going to leave this for someone with more knowledge but seeing it has been under the radar for a week I’ll have a go sorry if it doesn’t help :/

    From what I heard it all depends on you. Some methods work for some people and some don’t know what they’re doing, heck I think I once heard that someone had to use different methods for different stories. I say have a go and if it doesn’t work that just means you were intended for another method 🙂

      ^yes^

      I believe that writing is a very individual thing; nobody is going to be able to follow the same procedures or methods because each person functions differently.
