In the lead-up to NaNoWriMo, find out how to plot your novel like a professional. Learn how to structure the plot of not only an overall novel, but individual chapters and scenes as well.

Look at how plot interacts with character and the role of subplots in your story. Bring in a work-in-progress to share and workshop, so you can leave the weekend course with tangible progress on your novel.

You will learn

  • how to structure individual chapters and scenes
  • how to make sure that the plot stems honestly from the characters, rather than forcing your characters to act unrealistically to forward the story
  • how to work twists into your story without them coming off as contrived, and avoiding cliché in your plot
  • the function and characteristics of a compelling subplot
  • how to ensure that your plot remains believable, no matter what type of novel you are writing
