What's better than donuts?
Using them as an awesome analogy for a writing worksheet!
Okay, maybe donuts are better, but you'll still be able to learn how to craft and plot out your story with this worksheet. Do you have a story that you're needing to plot out? This is the worksheet you need.
Coming up with a plot for your story is often one of the hardest parts of writing a story. You can have the coolest setting in any genre with an awesome character to follow along with, but if you don’t have a plot, you don’t have anything.
“But what is a plot? Why do I need it when I have a great story and character?”
A plot can be defined as the main events of a play, novel, movie, or similar work, devised and presented by the writer as an interrelated sequence. (Google)
To simplify this further, it’s a series of events that make up the story. The key to a good plot is laying them out in such a way that you keep the reader engaged throughout those series of events!
“But I have a story already, isn’t that the same thing!?”
In my opinion, no. You can have a story without a plot. A story is just an idea until you add the plot elements into it. It’s kinda like having a plain donut; it’s still good, but it could be better.
