Pick a Plot, Any Plot

With just a bit over a week till Novel Writing Week starts, some of us are looking for a plot. If you’re writing a Short Story you may have a simple plot already in mind. But if you’re more ambitious and working on a Novella or Novel length entry, well you may be in need of a bit more… inspiration? guidance? organization? Tie this in with your scenes from the last entry and maybe you’ll make it through.

I’m going to give you a quick run down of the 20 Master Plots discussed in 20 Master Plots and how to build them by Ronald B Tobias.

1. Quest

2. Adventure

3. Pursuit

4. Rescue

5. Escape

6. Revenge

7. The Riddle

8. Rivalry

9. Underdog

10. Temptation

11. Metamorphosis

12. Transformation

13. Maturation

14. Love

15. Forbidden Love

16. Sacrifice

17. Discovery

18. Wretched Excess

19. Ascension
