Do you want to write a stronger story? Would you like to worry less about plot holes and weak characters? Some writers shy away from outlining, believing it their worst nightmare, and state that time is better spent writing a novel than planning it. Then there are those who’ve tried plotting, perhaps more than a few times, only to get lost in the weeds and overwhelmed by frustration.

Plot Development is a step-by-step guide which will teach you: ● How to decide on the number of characters to include in your novel ● How to make each character come alive with their own wants and needs ● How to choose between different types of outlines ● How to develop engaging events and where to place them within your story ● How to enhance your plot with potent subplots ● How to build chapters, designed to deliver an immersing experience for the reader ● How to review and edit your outline to make it even better ● How to enrich your opening and closing chapters Included are seven bonus chapters, covering important topics like: theme, beta readers, short story plotting, and much more. Additionally, you’ll be able to download an outline template to provide an in-depth guide for your plotting. No more getting lost in those weeds! Plot Development is brought to you by two bestselling authors, who have published more than twenty novels between them. Leverage the power of story structure and take your writing to the next level.

“As I sat in the Odyssey Writing Workshop classroom where Melanie and Steve Tem were serving as writers-in-residence, I thought how fortunate the students were to participate in that magical experience. Through their unique ‘dialogues on writing,’ Melanie and Steve explored topics in a way that was both liberating and illuminating. Writers could disagree on how to write! And they could prompt each other to dig deeper into their thoughts and processes, eliciting unique insights. Students were delighted and fascinated. Now this book allows more writers to benefit from their invaluable explorations.” —Jeanne Cavelos, bestselling author and director of the Odyssey Writing Workshops Charitable Trust Steve Rasnic Tem and Melanie Tem are no strangers to the writing business. Between the two of them, they have published more than 600 short stories, 20 novels, and 10 short story collections. Not to mention numerous articles, essays, poems, and plays. They've won the World Fantasy Award, British Fantasy Award, and Bram Stoker Award. In this book they go over everything from the mechanics of writing, to how to find the time to write, to dealing with all the paper writers tend to collect. They discuss plot, point of view, setting, characterization, and more, all in an informal tone that invites you to become part of their conversation. Learn how to find your stories because they are Yours to Tell.
