10 days to go and I'm hungry ... hungry for a McGuffin (MacGuffin...)

No, dear readers, no ... a MacGuffin is not a toasted breakfast treat from a questionable fast food franchise that I may or may not have worked in for three years and thoroughly enjoyed my time there when I was a younger man in need of cash ... and burgers...

Sorry. Got a bit carried away.

There are MANY different ways in which to get your plot up and running. One of the most popular is the use of a MacGuffin. What is it? Well, let's find out.

10 days remain on our latest KICKSTARTER! The brand new volume in the HOW TO THINK WHEN YOU WRITE series is available for the first time, alongside every existing volume. See what's in the store by clicking HERE.
