I'm looking for someone who has experience creating plots - developing a compelling story line, creating interesting character profiles, and adding emotional escalation points. Each plot should be original with plenty of imagination. I'd expect most plots to be around 1000 to 1500 words each. The budget for this is $16 per plot, no matter the length. The genre is sweet and clean historical romance. Some of these plots will need to have a Christian aspect to them. If your experience is in a different genre, as long as you're willing to read documentation I provide and do research as needed, I'll consider you for this job. If you're interested, please send an example of plotting work you've done. If it seems like we might be a fit, I'll hire you to do the first one. If that goes well, we'll keep going. I'm looking to build a long term relationship with a few writers who can provide 2-3 unique plots every week. If you can do more than that, I'd be happy to take them. I'll always be available to answer questions as they come up. I'm easy to work with and flexible. I pay quickly, so you won't have to wait on me to finally get around to looking at your work.
