Choreography Defines Scenes

This can be true. I'd planned a scene -- my heroine rolling out of the hero's bed and wondering how to leave quietly but gracefully. Then, of course, I remembered they'd made love on a couch and fallen asleep there, entwined.

End of that idea...or I could have had them make love again, this time on the bed, but she was wary of that bed...

In any event the scene went a whole lot different than the original sketchy plans. Still not sure about it, but it's done.

So consider your choreography, particularly if you end on a hook. Make sure it's consistent.

May your choreography be clear today.
