Toward revision

Consider this exercise from the making of a story by Alice LaPlante:

  • Write about an event in your character’s past without which the current situation couldn’t exist.
  • Write about the current situation from the point of view of a character looking back from ten years in the future.
  • Make a list of the things that won’t happen to the characters as a result of the current situation. (554)

Write a note to yourself about how knowledge from this exercise might inform your revision plans.
