WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE: CHARACTER DRIVEN OR PLOT DRIVEN STORY
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
