The Plot Thickens

It is said that there is nothing new under the sun, and American author William Wallace Clark really put that notion to the test.  His book “Plotto: The Master Book of All Plots”, written in 1928 and recently re-released, showcases his system for creating plots for his many books.  In fact, he created 1,462 plot outlines using his method.  Check out this recent NPR story about the book, along with an excerpt.  Do you think something as important as the plot for your book can be derived from a formula?  Share your thoughts!
