At the moment, I'm getting a great deal of pleasure from framing my scenes. However, not in the typical (or should I say... technically accurate) sense of a frame story, in which the telling of one story is nested in another. Rather, I like to frame the telling of specific scenes, by which I really don't mean anything like what a frame story is.
Glad to have confused you.
I like to begin a scene from the point of view of some secondary character, whose viewpoint we will probably later shirk in favour of the main characters. Frequently, this is someone who is about to die, or some kind of lackey, or sometimes a bug or an animal of some sort. Sometimes, it is merely the natural landscape.
Now, I know you're not supposed to do this. Or, at least, I've read/heard that somewhere. But it's a ton of fun. I enjoy building on these scenes; they give off a lot of flavour. And sometimes, you end up with a great secondary character, or maybe even a new main character. Awesome!
But mostly, it's just great to watch my main characters blow away the bad guys from the bad guys' point of view.
... am I sick?
