Now we’ll discuss something everyone gets fired up about: creating a plot Plot is the nitty-gritty that gives your characters something to do. Most of the top programs—until recently, Columbia was the major exception—provide fellowship support for all their students, and the classes are tiny. Louis worked in a bookshop for years and remembers the round-the-corridor queues at a Terry Pratchett signing, compared with the embarrassing no-show at a signing by Graham Swift who had just that year won the Booker Prize.

Few novelists have written and rewritten their obsessions so compulsively, I think, as you have. The third act should be around 25% of the story.
