A Scene Break Character is a keyboard character or group of characters that you’ve input in your manuscript between scenes in chapters with multiple scenes.
If you already have a scene break character in your manuscript, you can use that. If not, choose a scene break character that is unique in your manuscript and enter it between scenes. Do not use a scene break character at the end of a chapter or in chapters that only have one scene.

Fictionary empowers authors by guiding them through the story editing process and providing a structure that ensures their hard work pays off.
You'll save time and money on editing and have a better story to share!
Fictionary can identify and help you fix problems within your manuscript by focusing on the structure of your story, not just the words. Some of the critical structural areas are:
* Character names and appearances
* Point of view characters and their goals
* Story arc
* Plot holes and scenes without a purpose
* Flow from scene to scene
* Absence of tension or conflict
* Empty stage syndrome
* Confusing timelines or missing objects
There are two reasons.
1. If it never drew, there are not enough scenes or the word count it too low.
2. If it did draw previously and stopped drawing, this means not all 5 key scenes are set on the evaluate page.
