About this talk

Hey there, fellow scribe!

Have you ever worried that readers will saddle your novel with a DNF (Did Not Finish)?

It’s one of the worst outcomes for a writer.

Fortunately, there are different storytelling tools you can use to avoid this—like structure and stakes.

But…these powerhouse tools hinge on something else.

Something basic: the plot (specifically your protagonist’s goal and the actions your protagonist takes to achieve this goal).

Even though plot is a storytelling basic, it’s easy to go astray—and end up with a story that lacks a strong foundation, forward momentum, and narrative drive. In other words…a story that readers won’t want to finish.

But fear not, writer friend.

With the simple strategies shared in this presentation, you will know how to develop the plot in a way that will keep readers where you want them—glued to your pages!

Can’t wait to see you there,
