Telling the Story You Want to Tell: Plot Development
Join author and freelancer C. Hope Clark for a series of workshops to improve your writing.
Plot development is basic and very similar from genre to genre. Learn the three formulas for a short synopsis – the bare bones of your plot – which will help you stay on task. Know your theme and your hooks, which are much more important than the opening line. Understand different ways to outline the plot: the Three-Act Structure, Hague’s Six-Stage Plotting, Save the Cat Beat Sheet Plotting, and the Hero’s Journey.
