1-Week Nonfiction Picture Book Predictable Plot Calendar.xlsx
Hope you’re ready to start on our newest adventure: Writing a nonfiction early reader in just 1 week!
Here’s the calendar we’ll be following this week. Basically, the way to read this calendar is to know that each column is for one day.
There are basically 3 writing sessions we’ll be doing each day. Read the calendar from top to bottom for each day of the week.
I like to spread these out: 1 before breakfast, 1 after breakfast, and 1 after lunch.
In other words, we’re putting in full days of writing this week.
Also, I tweaked this calendar to better reflect the predictable plots most of us are working on. That’s because Kaeden Books seems to use predictable plots mostly at this reading level.
Basically, a predictable plot doesn’t follow the 3-act structure. Instead, it follows a pattern it establishes in the beginning of the book and follows it through to the end even if it has one or two variations.
So let’s get started! Roll up your sleeves and have a happy day writing.
