I’m struggling with my novel quite a bit right now, trying to untangle the plot and see if I can figure out what I’m trying to convey. I had a really frustrating time last weekend trying to work it out. The “fly by the seat of your pants” method got a lot more done for me than the “meticulous plotting” method. But it also resulted in some of the plot tangles. So… I have a couple good suggestions from my NANOWRIMO group – and I have this awesome reference. I can see at least 3 different ways of approaching my plot in this article that would probably help me sort out my thinking.
