Characters moving through time and space is the essence of fiction. How they pass through story is done through scenes and transitions. Transitions can be as simple as a double space break to indicate a new scene, or they can be one paragraph—even one sentence—expeditionary passages. Transitions can imply the passage of time, unveil a change of setting, or introduce new characters. In this week’s WritingWednesday, we’re going to discuss transitions in fiction. Listed below are some resources to support your knowledge of transitions.
