Plot graphing for a fun draft or an easy revision

Organization and efficiency may seem out of reach, but with a few worksheets and plot point prompts, you can build a framework that helps you get from set-up to climax in a logical, inevitable manner.

Don’t worry, pantsers! It will not chain you down, nor inhibit your creativity. We’ll spend time hashing out basic plot points, elaborating on those until you can see the order of events more clearly, and talk about how plotting your novel on an actual plot graph can help you with revisions, giving you an overall, easily digestible picture of what’s missing and what needs to be developed further. The goal being that you leave armed with everything you need to go home and get writing (or revising).
