How Do I Plot My Novel?

A twist can turn a plot – and a story – on its head. This month we’d like you to insert a twist in a popular fable or fairy tale and tell us what happens next. Perhaps Goldilocks was in league with Little Baby Bear all along, or Hansel and Gretel abandon their parents, not the other way around?

Show us how the simplest twist can change everything by mapping out your story’s unexpected conclusion – and share the details with us on Twitter. Tell your story to @FutureBookshelf
