My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Plotting Blogfest for the letter P

I interrupt my April Blog Break to bring you this BLOGFEST for when the letter P appears on the A-Z challenge.

Sign up to the linky and post your tips and secrets on how you plot your novels. Even if you are a Pantser rather than a Plotter, there must be some methods you follow when writing your stories. Or you can post about any aspect of plotting. 
How do you Plot your novels?

Oh and check out this awesome post by Rachna on Plot Layers

Okay I've always been a Panster, starting my stories and after writing a few thousand words I begin to run out of steam, so when I started blogging I began to realise I should be a plotter.
Gradually I have begun to realise that for my plots I need to apply the What If scenerio.

Then I realised that what this really means is that for every direction my characters take I should be brainstorming all the possible consequences and reactions that will arise from this to plot my novel.

When I saw this brilliant advert for the Guardian newspaper based on a well known fairytale The Three Little Pigs I realised that this perfectly illustrated my plotting message. They've taken a well known tale and applied this very idea to great effect.
