Masterplots Theater – Week 1 of the #AtoZChallenge

Category: Writing Craft

Hi all! So I’m super busy over at writing three posts a week for the April A to Z Blogging Challenge. Here are my contributions thus far:

B is for Buddy Love

Perhaps you’ve been contemplating a story idea that has two compelling lead characters and can’t decide which is the true hero. Well, I have good news for you — maybe you don’t have to choose! Today we study a masterplot that has two heroes: Buddy Love. Click here to read the full post.

D is for Dystopia

Despite the cry of “dystopian stories are sooooo over!” new ones come out every month. It feels to me that dystopia is not just a trend; it’s a genre that’s here to stay, just like sci-fi or historical fiction, and frankly it’s been around much longer than The Hunger Games. So if you have an idea that’s set in a false utopia, never fear, there’s hope of publication after all! Click here to read more about this masterplot.

F is for Fool Triumphant

That last masterplot was pretty intense, so today we’re going to lighten things up! If you love comedy, you might have a Fool Triumphant story in your repertoire. Click here to read the full post.
