“She smelled him. The blood was rushing through his veins. She could sniff out the heat in his body. His odour saturated her nostrils and filled her lungs.”
Thomas Emson, Maneater

“Mamet says you should ask three questions when constructing a scene: Who wants what? What happens if they don’t get it? Why now?”
Thomas Emson, How To Write A Novel In 6 Months
