Scenes are the key to motivating the reader. A novel without well-written scenes is like a painting without colors – it carries no emotion or meaning. Good scenes offer the reader the opportunity to be drawn into the lives of characters and escorted to their destination. This is not just about more than dialogue and plot; it is about building deep conflicts out of intrinsic motives, as well as letting these events drive characters forward. Only this creates tension in the text – every scene has to prove or explain something.
Examples created by neuroflash
I stood at the edge of the jungle and looked at the huge herd of elephants grazing in front of me. They were so big that I wondered if they could really be real. Suddenly I felt a touch on my shoulder and wheeled around. An old elephant with was looking at me. “You don’t have to be afraid,” he said with a smile. “The animals here are harmless.” “But … But they’re so big!”, I stammered, confused.
I slowly stood up and reached out to the elephant. He took a step back and emitted a deep rumble that startled me. “Calm down,” I said soothingly. “I don’t want to hurt you.” The elephant looked at me suspiciously, but he calmed down a bit. Then he touched his trunk to my hand and I felt him speak in my mind, “Who are you?” “My name is Tim,” I replied. “I came here because … well, actually, I don’t really know.”
I stood in front of the elephant and stared at him. He looked at me out of his little eyes and blinked slowly, as if wondering what I was doing. I had no idea if I actually possessed the gift or if I was just crazy – but I just had to try. So I took a deep breath and addressed the elephant in a soft voice: “Hello … um … can you hear me?”
How to write a good brief to get the best AI suggestions
Your brief is extremely important so that neuroflash can write high-quality texts for you. The more precise your brief, the better the AI-written texts. Our rule of thumb is: 1-2 precise sentences or 1-3 meaningful and coherent keywords (separated by commas!). You should ask yourself the following questions for a good brief: What makes your product special? Who is it for? What is important information that should be addressed in the AI-written texts?
Type of book & narrator perspective
Indicate what type of book it is. Is it an adventure novel, a romance novel, etc.? Also, you should add in which narrative perspective the scene should be written. There are different perspectives such as authorial narrator, personal narrator, neutral narrator and first person narrator.
Content of Scene
Describe what your novel is generally about and then include a brief description of the content of the scene. You can indicate which characters are in the scene, where they are, how they interact, and what thoughts and emotions are reflected.
