I'm guest blogging today on Heather Cashman's blog
(Can't help seeing John Cusack every time I hear the name of that blog)
Here is a taste of the post

Plotting, Plotting, Plotting Along…
Nothing ruins great characters like a bad plot.
If I was to ever speak at a writers conference I think the title of my class would be “My Story Sucks. Now What?” because this is the topic that I am the most familiar with.
I can’t count the number of times I have come to a point in my story where I said, “Why, oh why does this suck so bad?”
So, I am here to tell you what I have learned.
It’s the plot.
At least with my stories, I need to tighten the plot.
Easier said than done.
Can I share with you some of the ways that I have discovered what in the plot needs fixing?
