Tip of the Day: Simple is often better.

Most of us have heard it at least once: don’t over-complicate things. It’s the KISS method: Keep It Simple, Stupid. Our writing is the same. The moment we try to over-complicate a story plot is the moment that plot is no longer believable. If an action is logical and is where the story wants to head, then use it. Don’t try to force another plot, just because the logical progression is simple. KISS!

  1. Thank you, for your great post and in the nick of time for me. I have forgotten the KISS principal in my month long quandary regarding my third novel. I have too many plot ideas going on. Perchance, I should make this novel a continuing saga? K. D.
