John and Craig examine how writers balance the needs of each scene while keeping the entire story in mind. Then it’s another a round of the Three Page Challenge, where we look at scenes submitted by our listeners. We offer advice for gimmicky reveals, honest character reactions, and consistent POV.

Also this week: open writing assignments, and a checklist of what writers need to know before pursuing one.

In our bonus segment for premium members, what to do when you get bored with what you’re writing. Is that a sign to bail or buckle down?
