Like choosing your MC, choosing your plot is highly individualized, and pretty obvious. You need some sort of plot to participate in NaNo, since it’s key to stories. So really, I don’t need to go into the whole, plot this plot that speech.
I will say, if you are struggling, check out the book “20 Master Plots and How to Use them.” I was skeptical at first (anything that says “master list” is pretty much ignored by me) but I’m really glad I picked it up. It doesn’t tell you how to write or what to write, but talks about different types of plot and key elements of each one. Pretty useful.
Anyway, if you are struggling with this one, spend the weekend on it and things will turn out alright. Oh, and remember we’re still time-hunting!
