Hello and welcome to “Novel Writing Insights,” a podcast by SPI Publications where we delve into the world of writing and explore the secrets to crafting a compelling novel. Today, we’re going to talk about plot development, and how to create a story that will keep your readers on the edge of their seats. I’m your host Prabhat, and I’m a novelist and writing coach.
Plot is the backbone of your story, and it’s what keeps your readers invested and engaged. But, how do you create a plot that’s captivating and original?
The first step to creating a compelling plot is to have a clear understanding of your story’s theme and purpose. What message do you want to convey, and what do you want your readers to take away from your story? Once you have a clear understanding of your theme, you can start to build your plot around it.
Another important aspect of plot development is conflict. Conflict is what drives your story forward and keeps your readers invested. To create a compelling plot, you need to have a clear understanding of the conflict that your characters will face, and how they will overcome it. This conflict should be central to your story, and it should escalate as your story progresses.
In conclusion, plot development is a crucial aspect of writing a novel, and it’s what separates a good book from a great one. Remember, your plot should be driven by conflict, and it should be built around your story’s theme and purpose. With these elements in place, you’ll be well on your way to creating a captivating and engaging story.
That’s it for today’s episode of “Novel Writing Insights.” Join us next week when we’ll be discussing world-building and how to create a rich and believable setting. Until then, happy writing!
