I’ve lost Plot & Structure by James Scott Bell and I am frantic trying to locate it! There are only so many places it could be, right? There is no one to loan it out to…well, there is one, but I don’t remember loaning it to her.
So where or where art thou, oh book so needed and desired?
The thing is, I am ruminating a story idea and want to be a “plotter” with this one instead of doing it by the seat of my pants. I need to read through this book again so I know how to do it right. I want my plot to be sound, with no holes. I want the story to flow, with no skips and lurches. I need to find this book!
And no, my library does not carry it. *gasp*
I suppose I could use my Amazon money that I’ve won from Swagbucks, but I am wanting some fun books from some favorite authors that are coming out soon. (Swagbucks is a site to earn online money by using their search engine. You can exchange the online money to purchase gift cards and other merchandise. I always buy the Amazon gift cards and put it in my Amazon account to feed my book habit. Shameless plug, I know.) I really don’t want to purchase a book I KNOW has to be around here somewhere.
So now what? I’m not sure. I need some help in plotting, to be sure, but am not quit sure what to do. I wonder if there are online helps I could find? Or maybe my library has something comparable. (I know, I know, there is nothing like Bell’s work!) But surely there is something out there to help me.
