www.learner.org (and elsewhere on the internet) has some good tips for plot. The following elements need to go into a plot:
- Exposition is the information needed to understand a story.
- Complication is the catalyst that begins the major conflict.
- Climax is the turning point in the story that occurs when characters try to resolve the complication.
- Resolution is the set of events that bring the story to a close.
Hhm. I need to put on my thinking cap...
How do you come up with a good plot?
Good luck with your writing!
