|Scene break transitions are portals to a new scene,|
but if you don't see the door, how do you know you're
in a new room?
I never really thought about auditory transitions in a book before listening to audiobooks, because it's pretty obvious when you're reading.
But a visual scene change is entirely different from an auditory one. It makes me wonder how many writers have a plan for scene transitions when they write. Chapter breaks are usually announced by a tone, but scene changes?
Of course, the voice artist plays a big part in this. A really skilled actor or actress can pause just right to cue a switch to a new time or location. But it seems like this is the sort of a thing a writer can work ask for, and maybe help plan for.
Have you listened to any audiobook that does in-chapter scene breaks well? What did they do?
