Create A Plot Outline In 8 Easy Steps By Glen C. Strathy How would you like to create a plot outline for your novel in less than an hour that is emotionally compelling and dramatically sound? The secret is to incorporate the 8 Basic Plot Elements. Sound intriguing? I'll describe each of the eight elements in turn. On the other hand, if you already have a draft for a novel, that you're looking to revise, then ask yourself, as we go through these elements, whether you have included them in your story. 1. 15K+Save The first element to include in your plot outline is the Story Goal, which we covered in detail in the previous article, The Key to a Solid Plot: Choosing a Story Goal.

GIMP - hexGIMP hexGIMP This script creates a set of layers and an image grid suitable for making TSR-style wilderness hex maps. The brushes included in the distribution were derived from hex art copyright Thorfinn Tait, used with permission (see his site at thorf.co.uk ). The interface is simple: tiles are placed by selecting a terrain or city brush and clicking inside hexes, and rivers, roads, and political borders are drawn by hand. An image grid makes tile placement easy, and multiple layers keep everything separated for ease of editing and to ensure correct appearance (for example, roads will automatically go under hex grid lines and over rivers). hexGIMP is compatible with wildgen , my online random wilderness hex map generator; maps generated with the "no grid" option may be copied and pasted onto the terrain layer and then edited. See the README file in the .zip for installation and usage instructions. An image created with hexGIMP hexGIMP 0.0.5 (now with optional numbered hexes).

Get Me Writing » 5 Fool-Proof Ways to Put your Muse to Work EmailEmail Are you at the mercy of your Muse? Do you wake at night drenched in sweat, the icy fingers of a nightmare still clinging to your heart? A nightmare where you’re alone in a cold desert, digging in the dirt for just one idea (and you have no pants on)? Fear not, the Muse can be tamed! This is your oasis! But first, as we’ll be speaking about inspiration, the inspiration for this post comes from an episode of The Creative Penn. Once upon a time, I was one of those awful teenager things, and wasted my time even more than I do now. By the time I decided to take writing more seriously (many years later), that fickle fairy had up and left, returning only very occasionally. It might be that the teenage mind has better access to the Muse phone line (for some reason I’m imagining a purple version of the Batphone in Commissioner Gordon’s office); it might be that my head had more space, more freedom to create (more on that later). "You're right, Chief O'Hara. For a Start, Write Stuff Down
Seventh Sanctum Random Story Generator This thing is so fun. Prepare yourself! The idea I had was to create a sentence that sounded like a brief plot outline or even a TV Guide blurb for a Christian speculative novel. So I conscripted my Christian speculative novelist buddy, Randall Ingermanson, to do the coding. The paragraph you see below in blue is what the software generated for you just now. Have fun! Note that if nothing happens, you may have to click to allow ActiveX content to be shown on the page. This is a werewolf story about a pretender who wants to return to his/her home but is prevented from doing so by an earthquake bent on beating the devil at his own game. Tell me another story! Besides being an award-winning Christian speculative novelist, Randy Ingermanson is the publisher of the FREE Advanced Fiction Writing E-zine, the largest electronic magazine in the world on the craft and marketing of fiction.
