Topic: Finding Plots

Quote: Louis L’Amour: “It’s my belief that 90 percent of all fiction is based on just twelve to eighteen plots, and you can find them in any metropolitan newspaper in any given week.” “Nobody ‘invents’ a plot.”

Comment: It might be useful to have students comb newspapers to find plots similar to works of fiction being studied in class. RayS.
