How to Plot a Novel

As a newbie in the world of writing, I am interested in ways established authors develop their story from idea to the completed project. So it was with a good deal of interest that I found and read Pretentious Title blog. The author of the blog, Rachel Aaron, has published several YA fantasy fiction books and also a book entitled “2,000 to 10, 000 How to Write Faster, Write Better, and More of What You Love.”

In addition to her recent post to her blog, you will notice a left column, it is entitled Rachel’s Greatest Hits (about half way down the page). It is there you will find many of the ideas that go into how she writes, the way she organizes herself and many more. I especially enjoyed the post, and more to the point of this post, “How I Plot A Novel in 5 Steps.”

So if your asking yourself how do I get going in organizing my writing, here is a pretty good example.

Until Next Time,
