On finding the plot

If you’re like me and plot isn’t your thing, you may not know it yet, and unlikely as it may seem, you need The Plot Whisperer by Marsha Alderson. Amazon describes it as a “plotting system that’s as innovative as it is easy to implement. With her foolproof blueprint, you’ll learn to devise a successful storyline for any genre.”

My friend Kate Braithwaite (author of Charlatan, which also should be on your reading list) told me about it. It’s hard work to do the exercises, I won’t disguise the reality of that, but if you do them you will get your plot. The method really works! If you’ve lost the plot, take a look at The Plot Whisperer, for the sake of your sanity.

Here’s a picture of the structure of my novel. As you can tell, I’m very proud of it. Happy plotting!
