Well, frankly, I'm tired of stalling on my projects/being a slow writer/not getting how to plot/or how to pace out a plot.
I mean, it's weird. I recognize a plot when I'm reading. I can see the steps the story takes as the tension builds toward the climax. I've just always had a hard time replicating your basic plotting pyramid thing in a longer piece of writing (over 30, 000 words). I'm horrible at mathematics and I'm not strategically-brained; to some extent, plotting a novel and pacing it well is organization, applying a formula, a pattern, strategizing how and where things will happen.
For some reason, I feel like I flail around a lot while trying to plot.
Plot: definiton: the events that happen in your story.
First of all, I don't think the plotting pyramid is accurate. You know the one. You've seen it in high school English class:
