Tip: Plot is a series of events that make up a story. Think of it as a map that a driver follows from one point to another. There should be a sense of building. Check your scenes. Do they map out a logical route – or are there detours that lead to dead ends?
Thought: “You have to set the goals that are almost out of reach. If you set a goal that is attainable without much work or thought, you are stuck with something below your true talent and potential.” – Steve Garvey
Teaser: Write a short scene where your character has to do something s/he’s never done before and that scares them. Like jumping out of an airplane. Be sure to include their emotions. What are they thinking? Why are they doing this?
