How does one plan a story? I can write them, to a very limited extent, but then I never know where to go after I've reached roughly ten thousand words or so. I imagine a plan would help, but how do I make this plan?
Every RP I've been a part of has never had a finish - either somebody stops posting who happened to be key to the plot or the interest just fizzles out. I understand people have real lives - it doesn't make this any less annoying. Le sigh, c'est la vie.
