6th Annual International Plot Writing Month

Tomorrow begins International Plot Writing Month and you are joyfully invited! Visit the Plot Whisperer blog here everyday throughout December to revision the plot of your story.

Every December for the past five years, I've dedicated the Plot Whisperer blog to helping writers ready for a major revision and for those who simply wish to improve the plot of their stories. Follow daily exercises to re"vision" and redefine the plot arc of your story. PlotWriMo is custom designed to ensure your success even during the busiest time of the year.

On your mark. Get set...
See you tomorrow!

To familiarize yourself with the basic plot terms we'll be using throughout December, see resources below. 

Give yourself the gift of deepening your plot and your understanding of your story, your characters,  and who you are as a writer. Sign-up for the virtual Plot Whisperer Workbook Workshops to get you writing smarter and faster and more joyfully with a deeper understanding of plot.
