Developing the Main Plot

Duration: 1 - 1.5 hours

All novels need a plot. Without a plot – a beginning, middle, and end – a story is just a set of loose ideas. How much plot matters to your novel will depend on the type of book you’re writing. With this course, you will learn to identify a plot-driven from a character-driven story, the basic framework available to break down a simple plot, what a theme is and timelines.
