Welcome To Blockbuster Plots for Writers

Blockbuster Plots started as an idea in 2003. Why weren't there any great resources out there for writers who needed help with writing plot? What did it take to go from a story to a novel? From a computer screen to a movie? Blockbuster Plots, over time, has expanded to host plot workshops and one-on-one plot consultations and to offer a free monthly Plot Tips eZine. We hope you enjoy the site, and that it helps writers around the world. The plot tools developed by Blockbuster Plots, specifically the Plot Planner and the Scene Tracker, are used by best-selling authors, New York editors, and Hollywood movie directors. A great plot can turn your stories into reality.

What is Plot, Anyway?

Most people consider plot as what happens in a story. Writers take the definition two steps further. Plot is what happens to the character because of the dramatic action and what that means overall. In other words, when the dramatic action changes the character at depth over time, the story becomes thematically significant. Visit the Resources section to learn more about the core dynamics of plot and about how best-selling authors deal with plot and structure.
