Have you ever had salted dark turbinado chocolate almonds? I’m eating some for my snack today and they are thoroughly amazing! If you’ve never had the chance to try one, you should find the nearest store that sells them and buy a small bag. They can quickly become addictive, so don’t go crazy, but definitely give them a try! Anyway, it’s Friday, which means that it’s time for another plot challenge.I hope you all enjoy yourselves thoroughly! So here are the rules for today’s challenge:
Your challenge: Take a movie, book, short story, play (whatever) that you love, and identify each character and significant plot point. Now, identify the three most significant, pivotal events in the story, and work your way back through the plot, but change those three events. For instance, in Romeo and Juliet you might change the death of Tibedo so that he lives. Now, work your way back through the story step by step and figure out how the characters would react to those changed plot points. How would they react (in character)? How does this change the overall events of the story? Feel free to use this as an impetus to write some up a new story entirely, but the goal here is to see how character’s themselves help to shape the plot of a story.
