The Fiction Plot Map

Or have you wandered into your manuscript with no particular destination in mind only to wind up in a swamp? Enter The Fiction Plot Map, a method of planning your stories that will help you find the happy place between plotting and pantsing. A good book is both plot and character driven, and this course will not only teach you the essential components of a satisfying story, but also how to create realistic characters with believable arcs.
In this workshop you’ll discover:
- The basics of the Three Act Structure.
- A quick tip for putting the right character into the right story.
- How to use character arc + story structure to plot tent-pole scenes.
