Ep 070T Using Chris Fox's Plot Gardening System – WRITE NOW! Workshop Podcast

In Chris’s e book, he talks about how you can construct the characters, the plot, the world, a step at a time. One query he requested was – how is your e book totally different from others in your style. As all the time, my first thought was, “I do not know. Uh-oh! It is not!” 😀

Only for the enjoyable of it, Google “[your genre] tropes.” I Googled “romance tropes,” “horror tropes,” “suspense tropes,” and others, and located a protracted listing of internet sites, PDFs, and YouTube movies explaining all of the issues readers have come to count on from these genres. They can provide you concepts, or show you how to refine an thought you have already got.

After all, for those who’re a plotter chances are you’ll discover you are creating your story define as you discover an increasing number of fascinating tidbits by Google, Wikipedia, and extra.
