The Saturday Writing Quote

“Problem, purpose, conflict, goal. Use them. Think about them while you are in the planning phase of your novel; keep these elements at the back of your mind to guide you while you write. When you have written a scene, make sure they are all there, or that if one or another is missing, it is intentional and the effect is what you want.”

– Phyllis Whitney, in The Writer, April 1973 (American mystery writer and goddess, 1903-2008)
