Question: I have a really good story idea and have every thing planed out but when i try to connect my different scenes i just cant find a way to fill it in the middle so that it runs smoothly.Answer:
It's impossible to answer this question properly without the manuscript in front of me to know exactly what you are talking about. However, if your scenes are illustrating the series of events that make up the story, then you may not need to create lengthy transitions. The important thing is that you set the stage for each scene by providing enough information to orient the reader - so he knows when and where he is and who's eyes he is seeing the story through. You can fill the reader in on anything that happened to the characters since the last scene as you go along, or (if something so important happened to them that you need to show it) write that scene and insert it earlier in the story.
