    Letting the river flow

    Discussion in 'Plot Development' started by PastPresentNFuture, Jun 27, 2011.

    I think I may have discovered a solution, to my plot difficulties. The problem is that I have been constantly trying to think of a plot, and after reading another thread, I realized I need to focus more on character complexity. Therefore should I just see, how the characters interact with each other, in my fictional world, and develop ideas from there?

    Well, your plot is only one aspect. What matters the most is the story, and it is the story of character(s).

    I think working on your characters would definitely be helpful for you...perhaps you could even try some "character interviews"? I read about them in another recent thread if you want to check it out. :) You may find that, in exploring your characters, you discover something about them which could help you with your plot...after all, your characters will be central to the story.

    Good luck with it :)

    I think what you need to focus on is writing.

    You could try the character clinic thread in word games. :)
