What are you plotting?

Plotting Away!

Every screenwriter MUST remember that the plot is LIVING!  The audience MUST always be focusing on a single action-idea throughout every story event!  In addition, the plot and character(s) work together, and action MUST have a connection to the plot. Aristotle believed that “Plot is soul.” Because the plot is the very structure that arouses emotions from an audience, it is paramount.  To write a good plot, you MUST consider the end.  For example:  Let’s say we are building a tree-house.  The visual image of the finished house is the end, so everything in the story needs to lead you to the completed tree-house.

Plot is STRUCTURE!  What are you plotting today?
