If your scene is not fantastic, you’ll want to cut it. If you don’t want to cut it, you can add conflict and magically, it will improve.
Or, if there is conflict, make it greater…
Here is an example. This little woman is on a shelf. I saw her standing there, in her bowl… and I thought, “Story!” I wonder how she got there. Wonder what she wants. Maybe she’s trying to get out of the bowl. But in the end, I didn’t want to look at her for all that long… because her story, frankly is kind of boring.
What do you think?
So, I added conflict.
Makes it a LOT more interesting.
