Hmm :scratch:  A good basis to start on, but I don't agree with everything she says.  The best stories have layers of meaning and involve at least three MCs.  Maybe she meant a story should be told from one POV?  I don't think that's necessarily true either - in a long short, you can get away with another, I think.

Thanks for the link, Sharon.  Seems like good advice, on the whole :smiley:
Planning is an unnatural process - it is much more fun to do something.  The nicest thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise, rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression. [Sir John Harvey-Jones]
