I've noticed that I am able to come up with themes, antagonistic forces, characters, beginnings and endings. I've come up with interesting scenes, battles, and trials for my characters. One thing I've noticed though is I am not good at plotting and I find myself lost and confused with the myriad of simultaneous events and plots. Sometimes I find myself unable to tie my themes and conflicts to plots. I've read books on theory, act structure, and conflict. However, I've never read anything specifcally on plotting my works. Mapping it all out to perfection, with precise timing. I know there must be a skill to it. I can feel it as I find myself with holes and empty space in my books (or too much crammed at once). Or when my characters have nothing to "do". Is there any great resources on learning how to plot a book? I fnd it easier when I am working on a screenplay, because there are less characters and events. But on the novel I am writing, I find it much harder. I order most of my books off Amazon.
