Rob Parnell and The Writing Academy present:
When it comes to writing stories, once you have a good grasp of character creation, you can then move on to the tricky part: creating a great plot for your novel, short story or flash/fan fiction.
Plotting is fundamental to story. It can make or break the impact of your writing.
A plot is not merely a sequence of events - in the same way that a series of diary entries is not a story. A plot is something much more involved - it implies a coherence that goes way beyond a simple relating of 'story points'.
A good plot is a thing of beauty. It has symmetry and a solidity that goes far beyond what most writers even try to accomplish…
So what makes a good plot?
