Plot Planners for Writers

Writers benefit from a visual representation of the plot / structure of your stories. The Plot Planner (and original plot board) shows how the 3 essential plots rise and fall together – 1) Dramatic Action 2) Character Emotional Development create 3) Thematic Significance. When you begin planning your plot, your Plot Planner is likely sketchy with lots of gaps and dead-ends, but these will be smoothed over and filled in as you come to know your story and characters better.
