plot vibrations

Deciphering and articulating plot can feel overwhelming.

Even after characters have arrived and formed relationships, even though you know ‘what happens’.

Plot isn’t just what happens, it’s the consequences that drive story. Consequences shape and reshape how your characters cope, don’t cope, try and fail. Consequences confound intentions, and disrupt relationships.

Imagine plot not as a linear, but a webbed construction – what touches one thread vibrates the entire web.
