questions to improve a plot

As I navigate through chapter by chapter revisions, I keep asking, 

How can I take the next scene in an unexpected direction? 

What does this reveal about my characters that wasn't already shown in other chapters?

Have I used all of the five senses to set the mood and drive the plot forward?

Is there inherent AND escalating conflict present?

  1. I like the scene snippet and the questions! Reminds me that I need to ask the same of my books!
