How To Plot A Killer Novel

with David Allan Hamilton, Founder and Instructor with the Ottawa Writing Workshops

Have you tried to write a novel and found yourself bogged down by the seemingly impossible process?

Disappointed with what you’ve written and wondering “How can I write a story as exciting as ___________”?

Well, there’s a ton of material on the internet and elsewhere about writing stories . . . some good and some poor. But before you dive into character development and Big Themes and such, you need to tell a good story first. And that means starting with a solid, sure-fire, plot.

A plot that:

  • Draws your reader in quickly, and holds them there
  • Builds in twists and turns like the pros use
  • Has been proven to “work” for thousands of years
  • Maps out your story before you ever start writing, so you can validate it with readers

    If that’s what you’re looking for, then you’ll want to attend this free one-hour workshop on plotting like the pros. You’ll learn:

  • The foundational elements of all great stories
  • A proven “fill in the blank” plotting template based on these elements
  • Real life examples of books and movies that use this plotting method
  • A free tool that you can start using today to plot your next novelAre you in the middle of writing a novel now and not sure if it’ll work? Then test it against the plotting tool and see where the gaps are. You’ll fix it up once you see how successful stories work.This workshop is open to anyone – no writing experience required!
