YA Indie Carnival: Fiction Pie


So this week's theme is: recipes for plotting your stories. Hmmm? To be honest, I came up blank, totally blank. I had no idea what to write about here... my stories usually take me by surprise, with little planning involved. You could say I am a 'pantster'.... I fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to story telling.
But these stories must come from somewhere, mustn't they? Hmm?
Well, I guess you could say the recipe behind Raven was created in that wonderful land far, far away, called Canada. That and a touch of Twilight inspiration, I suppose.
I'm really not doing very well, here am I? My fellow Carnis are probably writing thoughtful posts on how to come up with perfect plots for your tales and I am most certainly lacking!
I tell you what... why don't you head on over to their fantastic blogs and have a look for yourself. I'll be joining you soon, for sure!

  1. There's nothing wrong with coming up with your recipe as you go along. If somebody didn't "pants it" once in awhile we wouldn't have things like sandwiches, cheesecake or swiss cake rolls...yum. So keep on pantsin' :)

  2. Well OF COURSE all inspiration comes from Canada... ahem. Did I say that out loud? LOL You'd never know I was a Canuck or anything...

  3. Yes, most of the worlds greatest cooks don't use recipes!!! hee-hee...and I have to say that until VERY recently the word plot made me break out in a sweat! The word is terrifying. Simply, terrifying:)
