Recently I became a card-carrying Costco member. For those of you who don’t know about Costco, it’s one of those megalith block-long stores where you can purchase just about anything from computers to toilet paper IN BULK! (the toilet paper, anyway).
So anyway I got to thinking-are you a Costco plotter or a boutique plotter? (And by boutique I’m talking the Madison Avenue type of place where there’s one handbag in the window and three dresses discreetly hanging on racks, and you know if you have to ask the prices you shouldn’t even be there). In other words, are you an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink plotter, or are your plots sleek and streamlined?
Me, I’m definitely in the Costco category. Lust! Romance! Murder! Weird science! Genetics! Politics! I like to throw ’em all in, sort of like a Macbeth-witch casserole. Makes for more plot-hole potential, but I can’t seem to limit myself to cleaner plots with good lighting.
What about you? Are you Costco, or Madison Avenue?
