How to Squeeze Out a Plot

I know for me it’s often like squeezing blood from a stone. And the debate over whether to outline or not is one of those classic, eternally ongoing discussions like “less filling” versus “tastes great.”

But for neat answers to the question of “how do you devise your plots,” check out this new post on the Odyssey Workshop Blog. It includes not only my answer but also those from Lane Robbins, author of the novel Maledicte, Rita Oakes, who has a story forthcoming in Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and Matthew Rotundo, who won Writers of the Future last year, and other Odyssey grads. Interesting answers, all, even though their processes are all very different.
