What better way to make your favorite writer smile?
Plotfoolery is a story-writing adventure with enough wacky and wordtastic ideas to stretch your imagination and keep you writing for hours. Part game, part creativity sparker, it’s guaranteed to make even the most reluctant writer grab for a laptop or pad and pen.
