Episodic writing

One of the Steeple Hill editors forwarded this link to an article on Episodic Writing that is simply fabulous:

Plotting Problems - Episodic Writing


  1. Camy,

    Thanks for sharing this link. I hadn't heard the term "episodic writing," so this information was something I definitely needed to add to my body of knowledge on craft. I can see how, especially in my earliest manuscripts, I was guilty of producing episodic writing. Now that I've read this excellent post, I'll be better able to spot that particular weakness should it crop up in my work--and to eliminate it.

  2. Hi Camy, and thanks. This is interesting and timely--several ladies and I recently had a discussion regarding plot. After reading the article, at least two of us have questions regarding how much control secondary characters can have in a storyline.

  3. Thanks, guys! I'm glad to know this article helped you as much as it helped me.

  4. Great article! :) Wow, I haven't stopped by for a while, and need to catch up. I need to check the archives...
