Saturday Creativity Quote — Mosley on plot

Black question mark on white background

Plot is the structure of revelation–that is to say, it is the method with which you will impart important details of the story so that the reader will know just enough to be engaged while still wanting to know more.”

  1. A few years back I paid for a year’s subscription to Master Class and Walter Mosley is one of the writers whose class I “attended.” Learned a lot, enjoyed his point of view, and read a couple of his novels to soak up more. Also, he is one of the people who talk about Toni Morrison in the documentary “The Pieces I Am” which I recently watched on PBS. Quite a guy, quite a writer, quite a thinker.
