Do you guys have that one character that you really just want to slap in the face? Because they’re just so judgmental, so cocky, and so passive aggressively demeaning that you honestly don’t know how you haven’t made a rock drop down from the heavens onto their overinflated heads? No? Just me?

» Kris Noel: How to Make Sure Your Plot Works
When you’re writing, it can be hard to make sure that everything you’re including fits or connects into a coherent story. So how do you check if your story is making sense? How do you know if your plot works as a whole or needs to be reorganized? There are a few ways you can start to figure it out.
- Explain the plot of your novel to a friend or family member. Ask them to be honest enough to point out if they don’t understand something because that will most likely be something no one will understand. When you read your plot out loud, you should be able to see if it fits. You should be able to point out what you might need to change.
- Try writing a synopsis for your novel. Once you’re done with that, write a second one in a different way. You’ll be able to pinpoint the main ideas of your story and the different story lines Pick the things that your story is MOST about and try to summarize it. You’ll see if you’re missing anything.
- If you’re stuck, write an outline. I know you don’t want to waste all your time writing outlines, but they can help you keep things organized and you’ll be able to see what else you might want to include. Your outlines need to be flexible, so you can add ideas if you want, but try to follow it. You can change it and reorganize it, but use it as a reference.
- Try using writing programs to keep track of what’s going on. If you take a long break from writing, you might have trouble remembering where you left off or where your story was going. I really like using Storybook if you’re looking for something free and easy. It helps keep your writing organized and you can figure out where you want to go.

If I was a famous author I would publish a book with ten different endings which all went to print with varying degrees of rarity, but not tell the fans about it so that I could watch their confusion as they disagree over how the story ended. Then when they figured it out I would ‘come clean’, telling them that I had released eleven alternate endings and watch them panic again as they all try to find the last ending.
