    Writing skills may not be something that is there inside of you but will have to wait till the right time comes. For
            most of us, the skills do not come as divine inspiration, striking you like lightening one fine day.

    Understanding Plot Time Frames by Gary R. Hess

When writing your story, either fiction or non, it is important to keep in mind the time frame.

Many writers, especially of mystery, are expanding the power of the pen by creating time frames which
bounce from one period to the next. To do this it takes concentration, a good layout, a great sense of
mind and of course an astounding imagination.

Some of the most common plot time frames are as follows:

Present =>
Present - Past - Present =>
Future - Past - Present =>

When using a non-normal time frame, ie: present - past - present, it is important to keep the tenses
within your writing related to the period.

For example: when writing events that already happened, use the past tense.

Using a non-normal time frame can be confusing to readers, however when used correctly and with a
great plot it can be an interesting twist to the story. Just remember, the power of the pen is only as
powerful as the author's imagination.

Have You Tested Your Plot?

Creative Writing Tips –

Our plotting stage is our testing area.

Everything in the plot should be tested for its effectiveness before we put in into our stories. If you
believe something in your plot could be better, make it better.

Figuring everything out in your plot will save you time rewriting later.

So how do you test your plot?

Start with everything that has gone into it.

For example... Are the events interesting? Does your plot contain problems for the character to
solve? Have you given your character a goal? Is the conflict strong? Is the resolution of the conflict
interesting? Is the character interesting? Is the setting of the story interesting? Will the incident or
situation be interesting to your readers? Etc

Make a list of what your plot contains. Comb through it carefully and tick off each item. If you find that
some things need to be worked on some more, work on them.

I know to some this might be tedious work, but…

“Every one-minute you spend in planning
 will save you at least three minutes in execution.”
Crawford Greenwald
