This book covers the most popular element among our fiction-writing audience: plot. Appealing to novelists of any stripe. The Novelist's Essential Guide to Creating Plot allows readers to focus on and examine in depth the structure of the novel - either one they're currently working on or one that they are planning. Light in tone and friendly to the beginner, Davis' instruction is accessible and practical, guiding readers to implement the lessons of the text in their novels. Readers will learn how to increase the intensity of their plots, enrich their work with multiple and parallel plots, and weave in subplots, leitmotifs, backstories and more. From planning the plot to polishing it, Davis covers every aspect of how the plot works in concert with the other elements of fiction writing and putting plot into perspective, allowing the reader to more clearly understand how novels are shaped and structured.
