dynamics of plot

Plot is dynamic. It has purpose, meaning and motion – cast your ideas in terms of something happening, people talking and behaving.

Thoughts and emotions become the engine of plot when they trigger actions that cause significant consequences that impact outcome.

Make the struggle worth witnessing.  Compelling story is founded on effective, strongly felt conflict where opposing forces are fairly evenly matched and the final outcome is always in doubt.

What your characters think won’t matter if they don’t act.
