Author Steven James has created a “coincidence checklist” for fiction writers to help them keep their twists of fate in the boundaries of what readers will accept.
Don’t be scared — coincidences aren’t just okay to be included; they’re actually the building block of every story ever.
You just have to use them wisely past the first page to ensure you don’t lose readers to one too many skeptical eye rolls.
Read James’s advice on Writer’s Digest.
