There is a MAGIC FORMULA for writing - DEEP LITERARY THEME THEORY. The writing gurus are lying to you. They preach a right load of old rubbish - and charge you the earth for your trouble. For this is THE INFORMATION THAT THE PROFESSIONALS DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW. This will teach you exactly what the words - PLOT and STORY mean for good. You need PLOT - not characters - as only 1% of all writers can produce a fully complete publishable plot with no holes. Also teaches the shocking truth about the worlds of NON-FICTION and SUB-PLOTS ! ! ! !
