Stephen King Sez
SK sez he tossed every writing rule but one: No plots. He likens plot to assisted anything. It aint natural.
I say SK is nuts.
Most of life aint natural, with books at the top of the list. But the jungle beyond my backyard is inferior to formal parks and gardens I've seen. Sometimes God/PILOT gets it right, sometimes I do better.
What you fail to consider becomes your fate.
