A Dastardly Plot

Last weekend I was at the SCWBI New England annual conference, co-directed by my writing-group colleagues Greg Fishbone, Kathryn Hulick, and Marilyn Salerno.

At that conference I debuted a new workshop titled “Milestones to an Exciting Plot,” in which I tried to leave behind the three-act structure in favor of something less predictable.

I saw this on tumblr AmandaonWriting, you have done an exceptional job! I studied plotting with the amazing Jim Frey (How to Write a Damn Good Novel) and this is a fantastic schematic. I've plotted out my second novel with this and it profoundly helps... THANK YOU!
