Plot unblocking! Spoiling my own VNs for this talk [Promise, Progress, and Payoffs]
I will use examples from my VNs and every day life to describe the use of promises, progress, and payoffs in stronger, clearer plots.
This can also provide a framework for addressing beta-reader feedback or if you yourself just feel stuck.
I will also share takeaway Qs to ask yourself when figuring out your plot, with specific use cases and scenarios. Whether you are a director with co-writers, writing for another director, or just plain stuck as writer and director, there’ll be something for you. Maybe future me can use this as a refresher too since we’ve all been there, and any of us may return again.
