No matter what genre you write, the method for propelling the plot forward is the same.
And that method is fairly straightforward: make sure each scene has a purpose.
C.S. Lakin has evaluated many manuscripts that didn't follow this rule, and the result is a frustrating or boring experience for the reader.
