Muddy Water: Controlling Plot, Subplots, and Plot Points in Your Novel


How do you create a strong and exciting plot in your novel? How do you connect the plot with various subplots? How do you set up plot points effectively throughout your story?

This class will help you develop or strengthen your novel’s main plot. It will also help you better appreciate the use of subplots and the purpose of plot points. Plot, subplots and plot points create the main sequence of events and move your story from beginning to end. New and revised writing will be the focus in workshops.

You will complete the week with your plot outline in place, including two primary subplots, and a good sense of where plot points should be inserted.

This workshop is designed for new writers who are starting with a simple story idea, or those who have lost control of their story and need to figure out how to restructure it for the greatest impact.

In this workshop, we will generate new writing through exercises and assignments; provide feedback on writing you produce in our week; critique writing you bring from home.
