    Very interesting and helpful. However, it doesn’t seem to address filler scenes. I’m currently working on something and there are necessary scenes that I don’t feel fit into Action, ReAction, or Combo. Such as two characters having dinner, but one isn’t a part of the main storyline (yet). The scene is just to build character and such.

    I like this – it’s a great resource. Would be nice to print out and keep handy for review.
