Agent Emphasizes Need for Plot
When GLA asked what what she’s looking for right now, Nelson said:
KN: I’d love to see more literary fiction with that strong commercial bent—like Jamie Ford. Great storytelling, lovely writing, and a dynamic plot to really drive the story.
I see a lot of literary fiction with superb writing but there’s no solid plot to keep the pace strong. (emphasis mine) I certainly see the value in beautifully written and introspective literary fiction such as Prague—but it’s not right for me.
I want literary fiction with a genre plot—if that makes any sense. (Read the whole interview here.)
It’s one more reason why you need to know the 20 Plot Templates we discussed yesterday.
