I need to see the plot. Yes, you can write pages of stuff. But show me the plot.

Why do publishers/partners etc. all want to see the book plot beforehand? Maybe I’m like Stephen King and you’ll see it when you get the entire book.

Yes, I know. I’m not Stephen King.  I don’t write by the seat of my pants. I’ll go back to plotting it out. The last plot didn’t survive the writing of a few pages, which points to the difficulty for me of sticking to a plan.  I think a synopsis of a few pages ought to do it; going to go back to Mr. Snowflake dude and see what he has to say about this. I remember there was the meat of doing a sales pitch on an unwritten book and this’ll be a cinch.

No, not the kind on a horse.

Where does that particular phrase come from, anyway?
