Plot and Structure by James Scott Bell and Writing the Breakout Novel: A Workbook by Donald Maass are the two newest additions to my library. I've been reading the Bell book and getting some ideas.
I really need to decide what my character, Kate, wants more: to be the first girl to win the Mass State Junior Golf Championship, or to get the boy. Does she win the tournament on the way to getting the boy? or Vice Versa? Or does she want both, but only get one or the other? Or, neither?
Hopefully the plotting book will help me make some decisions.
