Can anyone recommend
any really good books on plotting? I’m thinking that it was time I was plotting another historical novel, so that I can finally send Running Press the option book that it calls for in my False Colors contract. Not wanting to do anything the easy way, I made up the plot for False Colors by doing one of those “100 drabbles from random prompts” things, and it took me the better part of a year just to do the plot plan as a result. This time I was hoping to do something a bit speedier!

The old man was disgusting, the young man was cruel, they were needlessly horrible to each other all the time, and it was supposed to be funny. Why is it supposed to be funny to watch people make each other’s lives a misery? Are we being invited to enjoy their suffering or something? That’s a bit sick, isn’t it?
It was very popular when I was young, and it was one of those things that made me feel like I was some kind of stranded alien on the earth who would never understand human beings. I still don’t understand it, and just watching that Youtube clip makes me sad.
