Advanced Plotting—Keep Those Pages Turning
Learn advanced techniques that will make a decent plot dynamic. Understand the promise of your first chapter. Then start with a “grab you by the throat” opening. Once you’ve caught the reader’s attention, you’ll want to pack the plot full. But how do you make sure you’ve done that? Check out these tools to analyze your plot. Once your plot is strong, learn techniques to maximize your pacing, including cliffhanger chapter endings to drive the story forward. Novelists will benefit from these insights, whether you are just starting out or have years of experience. Many techniques work for memoires, nonfiction, and even picture books too!
