Letter from the editor

Have you every been reading a book and were left wondering why something just happened? It could be that the author made the chapter move a bit too swiftly, and you actually missed something. I could be that an event was not connected to the others in the plot, and was out of place. As writers we have to make sure everything in our stories is connected so the plot moves along in a straight forward fashion. Surprise endings and outlandish plot twists to move the plot along only really work in soap operas and horror movies. There the viewer is more concerned with the action or the drama to really notice.

The best way to make your plot logical is to think it through. Figure how your characters fit into the world you have created and how you want them to interact with each other. Characters' relationships can influence how action progresses. Just make sure that a particular relationship is integral to the progression of your plot.

A freak accident to bring your characters together because of shared tragedy might add drama, but was the cause of the accident evident through the narrative. If you are going to add calamities to further the plot, refer to the impending event in other ways through the story.

Let your relationships flow. Don't have two people who were feuding miraculously make up. Here is where coincidences might be helpful. They happen to reality, so make use of them, in a limited way, to help show characters' value to each other.

Fully give the history of the character. This will explain their overall personalities. Stick to these characteristics. In short stories you are stuck with what you introduce in the beginning, though that is not a bad thing. In a novel, you do have room to evolve the character.
Whatever you do, make everything fit. Everything that happens must flow from something else that is already in the story.

Don't confuse your reader.
