Plotto: The Master Book of All Plots
Get Plotto! The Perfect Gift for the Writer in Your Life
Originally published in 1928, William Wallace Cook’s classic how-to manual Plotto is one writer’s personal method, painstakingly diagrammed for the benefit of others. The theory itself may be simple—“purpose, opposed by Obstacle, yields Conflict”—but Cook takes his “Plottoist” through hundreds of situations and scenarios, guiding the reader’s hand through a dizzying array of possible plot directions. This edition features a new introduction by Paul Collins.
