In the writing world much is said about plots and plotting in general can lead to many a writer’s frustration. There are many theories about plots but perennial favorites are that:
- There are only two basic plots
- There are 36 basic plots
- There are no new plots
- Every plot possible has already been used/created
No matter where you may stand on the above, knowing the difference between plot driven and character driven stories can only help you strengthen your story.
