Jane Friedman is one of my favourite writing bloggers out there, not to mention one of my biggest inspirations in starting this blog to begin with. On her website, she writes about everything from networking to building characters to finding a publisher. She also quotes The Smiths in her About section which is a surefire way to win my heart.

Recently I read an article of hers that I found really useful. It’s all about creating a believable chain of events in your novels, and how to create a believable universe for your characters to live in.

I highly encourage all of you to check it out!


Do you have trouble establishing causality when you’re mapping out a plot? How do you get around it? I’d love to know.
