Writing Prompt 201: PlotWriting Prompt 201: DUHN DUHN DUHNNNNN PLOT!!!Writing Prompt 201: Plot by pendragonvamp
In my years of experience and from hearing and reading the works of other writers I have found that most of us have difficulty with plots. IF Characters are a novels bread and butter, plot is the double edged knife that pieces them together. Therefore, I have devised a guideline to help writers of all walks of life to help structure a good solid plot.
The Basics Common Questions to First Ask
When: (Year, Era, Decade? Make sure it takes place sometime)
Where: (Kingdom, Other world, Room a plot needs a place)
Why: (Why does it affect your character?)
How: (How will your plot unfold?)
Relevance: (Why is whats happening so important?)
The basics will create in you an idea that you can work with to forge you own adventure. But there is more to plot than just this.

Story Writing for BEGINNERSStory Writing for BEGINNERS by OokamiKasumi
I want to write a story. I have a couple of ideas, but no idea what to do with them, or even how to begin! Help?!
-- Newbie Writer
So when you wanna write a story, where do you begin? With your PASSION!
Write what you KNOW & LOVE
What do you KNOW, really? What do you love to Do, to Study, to Think About, to Talk About...? Whether it's cave-diving, model trains, skate-boarding, sewing, horses, mythology, ghost legends, or particle physics your passion is where you will find your most unique and powerful work.
Make a list of all the things you know well and all the things you've done -- seriously! Mythology, history, any retail jobs you might have had -- anything you might have seen, done, or studied.
Sticking with your passions and your personal experiences also helps you make fewer MISTAKES.
Case in point, someone who has never kissed isn't going to be able to write a kissing scene as well as someone who Has. Worst of all,
