Plot It > Think like a Pro, ch. 3A

 One Guiding Decision : Plot It

We have ONE GUIDING DECISION for our writing, and that's related to Plot. However, the preliminary Plot Decision is to determine which of the 7 types of plot we're writing. Everything else comes from that ... even if we're writing avant garde literary fiction. The decision we makes builds the foundation.
