YA INDIE CARNIVAL: Recipe for Plotting Stories

Here's a fun little post idea.  We, at the Carnival, are going to give you recipes for plotting your stories.  I am doing this at the last second because I didn't understand what I was supposed to do and had to look at the others who posted before doing my own.  Hopefully this won't be a big mess  So here it is, my recipe for plotting a great story.

Recipe: Crushed

5 Witches
A Handful of Conflicts
1 Cup of Sweetness
Dash of Spice
Lots of Romance
A Pound of Magic
Opt: Twists and Turns

Mix all the above ingrediants in a word processor.  When it's done, pack it all into the pages of a beautiful book and offer it to everyone who loves to read about magic and love.  Enjoy!

I could have probably thought of a better recipe if I'd had more time.  Oh well.  Please click on the people below and enjoy their recipes.  I'm sure they are better than mine.

News:  Guardians of the Cross (Second in the Warrior Series) will be released on 12/24 of this year.  Warriors of the Cross was awesome.  My mom loved it.  You should check it out.  The author T. R. Graves is one of the Carnis.  Check out her blog below.
