Craft Webinar: Create a Plot Points Roadmap with Jenny Elder Moke
Plotting your novel doesn’t have to feel like pulling teeth.
In this workshop, writers will learn about the plot points roadmap – the five major plot points in every story that you need to know before starting your first draft. We’ll talk about the three-act structure, why theme is the touchpoint for every story, how plot and character rely on each other and propel each other forward, and identify the five major turning points in every plot that keep your story on the right track to make it to the finish line (even if the story wanders a little in between).
Who should take this workshop:
- Writers who have a great idea but aren’t sure where to begin realizing it
- Writers who fear the plot
- Writers who are worried their story is just coasting on vibes
- Writers who know their characters’ deepest secrets and favorite breakfast items but can’t figure out what they’re supposed to DO
