May 17 2008 Writing for Children Newsletter


Essentially and most simply put, plot is what the characters do to deal with the situation they are in. It is a logical sequence of events that grow from an initial incident that alters the status quo of the characters.
~ Elizabeth George

In answer to a reader's request, here's the first article in a series on plot:

Plot or Characters ~ What Drives Your Story?
Without plot, a piece of writing is not a story—it is a static description. Plot is what gives the story locomotion. And stories must move or they are not stories at all.

Please visit Writing for Children for more tips, articles, links, and discussion on how to write and publish for children.

To participate in free, fun online discussions, the site has a community forum all about Writing for Children.

If you have any questions or comments, as always, I'm glad to hear them. To contact me, reply to this newsletter.

Feel free to pass this along to family and friends who are also interested in writing for children.

Thanks so much!

Sally Apokedak,
Writing for Children Editor
