Plotting Strategy

"The plot is the line on which I hang the wash, and I try 

to think of a line on which it will hang." --Robert B. Parker

I'm thinking about buying some clothesline and clothespins.

What's  your plotting strategy?

  1. First, I love that painting. Second, I love Robert B. Parker's books.

    My plotting strategy? Hmmm... I hate to say it, but it often comes down to, "What else can I do to these characters?" I get a lot of suggestions from my family, who love to suggest especially dire outcomes!

  2. I fell in love with the painting, too, Peggy :-)

    And may I say your family sounds like fun, if you can get such interesting input from them! What a great critique/writing support group you must have.

    Thanks for stopping by. Always great to hear from you. Love your comments...
