WHAT IS A PLOT?

The first thing to know when starting a new fiction project is whether you are writing a character or plot driven story. A plot is a series of events surrounding a main theme or story. A plot driven story will drive and effected by an antagonistic force, such as a killer, competitive person, or any other external force. In comparison, a character driven story will drive the plot through internal conflict form the main character(s) via trauma, fear, self-consciousness, etc. You can choose to write one with either or both, but at least one needs to be the primary driving force

Writing sprints are short bursts of focused writing time that can be done alone or with a group”. Most commonly, these sprints are timed, specifically as pomodoro sprints. Writing sprints are helpful as they work as a trick of the mind due to the Hawthorne Effect in which they get more work is done with people around and being engaged and a positive reward system. AuthorTubers are big on this, such as Kate Cavanaugh, Brooke Passmore, etc. Regularly using writing sprints to complete your fiction work in segments is a well known practice at list point in time on YouTube and AuthorTube. Give them a try. I sometimes host them. You can find them on my channel here.
