While a character is often a mirror that a reader uses to bring themselves into a story, and the setting can set the tone of what awaits; it is seldom that putting characters in a room to see what happens can constitute as a good plot.  And, while it can and has worked, the plot of one's narriative is the journey that you are taking your characters and readers on.  Let's face it, Lord of the Rings wouldn't have been the same if they didn't need to make that little jaunt into Mordor.

Our panel is here to discuss plotting out your story, how to trouble shoot those moments when you're not sure where to go next and maybe even what to do when your character takes your story someplace you hadn't meant to go.

Psssssst ... for even more awesome, be sure to drop by the author tables located on the vendor floor, level 5.
