Plot

From conflict to resolution with lots of plans and failures in between--your plot is the pressure you put on your characters so their courage and ingenuity can really shine.

Plot ~ Conflict star
We need to have some quiet times between the car chases. Some times of normalcy. Otherwise the car chases feel normal and nothing feels exciting.

Plot ~ Internal Conflict star
By the time the teen shows up to school with his machine gun, the tension in his mind has already played out. He's already talked down the angel on his right shoulder and thrown in his lot with the devil on his left.

Plot or Character? Character or Plot? star
Should you begin with a character or with a plot? This article will help you reflect on which style works best for you as a writer.

Plot Starts With Conflict star
The more the hero stumbles, the more interesting the book is going to be. The more the poor fellow barks his shins, the more the readers will cry for him and root for him and flip the pages hoping he'll survive. And more than that even, they'll hope he'll be hugely victorious.
