Joe’s Post #168
So, when I find something interesting, I like to share it.
Sometimes that’s like, “hey look at this weird growth on my butt, what do you think that is?”
Sometimes it’s something I find on the internet.
So check this out. A new way of looking at plotting. It comes from Oz and Ends by J.L Bell.
Now the cool thing I like about this, is it looks at making the hero’s life hell in a whole different way and can be used for pretty much any part of your book. It’s sort of a rinse and repeat for writers.
But nowhere have I seen something that gets your mind thinking like this one did. It’s basically character meets conflict to create plot.
Now, sure, it doesn’t tell you how to put in backstory or when to introduce important pieces of information vital to the story, but try running that ‘plotting made simple’ template through your story and see what happens.
Or take a look at this from Jody Sparks.
Also, if you have some free time, check out Robert J Saywer’s latest post. Here. It’s a great read about the craft of world building and writing.
And that’s it from me. No wise words of wisdom from me about how to write, but please check out these other bloggers/writers. They’re awesome.
