If you can’t fit your plot on a 3′x2′ whiteboard…
…then the plot doesn’t work.
Last Friday I realized my novel was in two parts. I take that back. It’s in three. Three separate books with separate plots and two main archplots that drive all three books.
Clear external goals and antagonists? Check. The archplot and the individual plots woven together, driving each other? Check. Functional story timeline? Check.
Can I get a wha-wha?
Working through my rough draft has been an adventure, I tell you what.
Next up: three synopses.
