SCBWI Virtual Winter Conference: "Plotting Your Novel in 7 Steps with Janae Marks"
You may be familiar with the Save the Cat beat sheet, which includes fifteen plot points. Did you know there's a simpler, but still effective, version with only seven plot points? In this Creative Lab, author Janae Marks will explain the Seven-Point Plot System in detail with plenty of examples. You'll also receive the tools to plot out your next novel or fix the plot in your current draft. Attendees will work on their seven plot points for a new novel idea or their work-in-progress.
