A Bunch of Articles on Plot

My blog is about three and a half years old, and in that time I've written over 500 articles and book reviews. 500! I never would have thought I'd have so much to say on the craft of writing.

Last year, several readers told me that they've enjoyed some of my older posts, but had stumbled upon them by accident because, let's face it, navigating older content in a blog isn't exactly fun. So, I created a page with a link to all my craft-related articles, and got many thank-you's.

But even that list has become cumbersome. So, I decided to try something new. I'm taking all my articles, sorting them by subject, and putting them into pdf form for download.

I just finished the first one, which is about plot and plot-related things like tension, conflict, pacing, etc. It's available for download on my website. I will gradually be adding more, though now that I have a format the rest should fall into place fairly easily. :)

Anyway, enjoy, and I hope this is something you'll find useful.

What a great idea! And much easier to navigate than searching old posts.

Oh my gosh, what a fabulous resource. I'll definitely send students to that link. Thanks for putting that all together.

Kelly - thanks! I don't like searching for my own posts, and I know where they are and what to look for! Blogs are all about what's happening now. :)

Lena - thanks! I hope your students find it helpful! I'll be putting more together as I can.
