SO WHAT IS A PLOT? A plot is a series of events deliberately arranged to reveal the dramatic, thematic, and emotional significance of the events of the story.
When you start your journey with no idea of where you are going, allowing the words to carry you along as they will, they sometimes dry up, and you don't know where to go from there.
Every time you get stuck, you can use a form of brainstorming to get you going again.
The main problem with this method is that sometimes you can get so stuck you can’t get going again, or you end up with a lot of material that must be cut later, thereby wasting time and energy. The questions that you then ask to try to get going, are the same ones you would ask when plotting the story, so why waste time being stuck.
Ask them at the start. In this workshop, we will show you the importance of structure and how to achieve a plot that will keep you writing and focused. It doesn't matter if you are a plotter or a 'panters' this will help you.
Plotting Workshop: Sunday 4th June. 10am to 3pm. Cost $50.
