    BrainPick Plot vs. Synopsis

    I go from theme to plot to characters, and then bringing all together is the real task.

    Help! Multiple first person

    Poisonwood Bible Of Barbara Kingsolver is the only novel I can recall that has more than two (not just two) first person POVs which were pretty distinct. I think it has five. I love the book anyways.

    Help! Multiple first person

    Hi Everybody, I am looking for novels that have at least more than two first person POVs; the more the merrier (for my research at least). Any suggestions?

    what do you use to plot?

    How about a literary novel? I know this plotting works for the crime stories but does it always work for literary or historical novels? I know most of the people say "Yes." But I have reservations about it. Any thoughts?
