Inspiration To Make It Easier

#AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter K
is for Knockout plot!

The plot is the cause and effect of the story. Because “A” happened, “B” happens and “C” might happen, and then “D” becomes an available choice. Did the book have that sort of natural plot flow? For non-fiction or reference, did the order the book was written in make sense to you as you read?

In a great book, you won’t notice the plot while you’re reading. Video game players have a strong understanding of plot. Level one characters do not fight the big boss. The character goes through the game, doing a sequence of events that are necessary to get to the climatic end. Gamers judge games on how well the plot works, even if they do so with a different lingo.

  2. I don’t play video games so was quite fascinated by the idea that they have excellent plots. Fascinating.

  3. When I’m stuck with a plot, I play video games 🙂 Something about the structuring of their plots help me to fix what’s wrong with my own story.

    1. Yeah. I’ve done that for inspiration. Civ V or Sims, mostly.
