This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

Booking Through Thursday: Plots?

BTT is hosted by Deb at Wordpress.

Q: Plots? Or stream-of-consciousness? Which would you rather read?

I think I am probably more of a fan of a book with a plot(s). There is more a writer can do with a work with a plot over writing stream-of-consciousness. While you would get much more detail of a character's true thoughts and feelings in S-o-C it could be a bit difficult to achieve believability in some genres. I just prefer something with a good, interesting plot.


  1. Plotting is my answer, check it out [HERE]

  2. I prefer books with strong plot lines, too. And interesting characters. But I wouldn't rule out reading a little s-o-c from time to time.
