Accuse us of sharing C.S. Lakin’s latest post because of its cake analogy if you want — we won’t dispute it.

But the analogy isn’t just mouth-watering; it’s also quite apt.

Lakin compares a novel to a cake, in that multiple layers of varying thickness create the most appealing end product.

If there’s only one plot line (or layer), the audience doesn’t have as much to enjoy as if there are multiple plots (or layers) that work together and play off each other.

Lakin provides examples of these multiple plot layers (sorry, no dessert recipes) at Live Write Thrive.
