“If you can write 60 Scenes®, you can write a novel”
– Christina N Ranallo
What is a SCENE?
A scene is a unit of dramatic action that stands alone in location and time and sets apart the point of view character’s involvement in an event necessary to progress a plot.
If you can master how to hone an idea, plot within the three act dramatic structure using the viewpoint of both the writer (Outer Journey) and the character (Inner Journey) understand timelines, setting and the absolute need for conflict and tension, you can write a novel (or screenplay).

“This was the most hands-on, helpful and insightful writing workshop I have EVER attended. I believe this method will help me focus and pull all my ideas together in a coherent, interesting way. Worth every penny and more!”
“Great workshop. Walked away with my head spinning with ideas, but right away I could see what I was missing in the development of my story. Starting working on this new approach the next day…”
“In the middle of the workshop, I was suddenly hit with a feeling that a door somewhere was being opened.”
“When you understand story structure, your jumbled parts and pieces find their natural order.”
“I have seen that, just occasionally, something I have done has changed the course of my life.”
“First, let me say the class was GREAT! I learned far more than I ever anticipated… With that said, my intent is to get started immediately on the various processes about which we learned.”
