working you into a lather


– 28 April 2014 –

Happy Sunday!

Lots of talk in my corners of the world, of late, on what a successful play structure might be. I espouse Objective, Obstacle, Struggle, Turn (in which the Turn represents a change in the protagonist’s relationship with their world), but it’s far from the only paradigm

In the Still Eating Oranges blog, Kishōtenketsu is explored. It’s a technique that generates “plot without conflict.”

This week’s prompt is, then, to read this article, follow the instructions, and see how it works for you.

Happy writing.
