Scenes are the main elements of your novel (I teach scene blocking on Patreon). A novel is nothing but a scene after a scene after a scene.
And every scene is comprised of blocks, so when you plan a scene, think of it as the series of blocks: one block is leading to another, then to another, then to another.
Each block has to ask a question, then answer it, and that answer has to lead to the next question, and the next, and the next. In other words, each scene block must have a mini-reveal at the end. And so it has to repeat, block after block after block.
If at least one block doesn’t do this (doesn't ask a question and doesn't have a mini-reveal at the end that asks the next question, and so prompts the next block), your reader will pause.
Do it enough times, and you’ve lost your reader.
