A scene is a passage of writing in which a character attempts to achieve a goal. A sequel is a passage of writing in which a character reflects on the outcome of a scene. Scenes propel a story forward, while sequels provide a breather, allowing the character to assess his or her situation and plan the next move. Skillful use of scenes and sequels allows the author to control rhythm and pace to create page-turning fiction.
