Nicola Marsh went to the Romance Writers of Australia Conference and she has shared some of the things she learnt or heard.
During her blog post on writing style, ie, linear or scene writer, she gave this little gem:
In Bob Mayer's "POV & VOICE" session, he mentioned this:
"don't worry about the opening scene. Write the book. The climactic scene should mirror the opening scene therefore you can come back and write/rewrite the opening scene."
What do you think of that? Have you written the closing scene of any of your stories that mirrors the opening?
I guess it's a way of showing closure, or that the characters have gone through a change from the beginning to that final scene.
It is intriguing and i kind of like it! May have to try this for my Princess story as i can see a great conversation for that one ;)
