Tin House: PLOTTO: The Master Contest of All Plots

PLOTTO: The Master Contest of All Plots

The publishing house Tin House has started a new challenge that runs weekly.

Every Wednesday we will post a prompt from William Wallace Cook’s classic how to manual Plotto: The Master Book of All Plots on the Tin House blog. Simply use the given prompt you find there to write your own original 500 word story.

I intend to enter it regularly. Any entries that do not win (chuckle) will be added to my 50¢ Flash series. I have already entered the first with the story Goodie Two-Shoes. Let’s see how it goes.
