Plot First or Character First?

Writer to Writer Night with Becca Whitham

Becca Whitham is an agented historical romance novelist. She’ll tell us how her understanding the difference between “Plot First” and “Character First” novelists led her to work on her weaknesses, which then led to publication.


Becca Whitham (WIT-um) is a multi-published author who has always loved reading and writing stories. After raising two children, she and her husband faced the empty nest years by following their dreams: he joined the army as a chaplain, and she began her journey toward publication. Becca loves to tell stories marrying real historical events with modern-day applications to inspire readers to live Christ-reflecting lives. She's traveled to almost every state in the U.S. for speaking and singing engagements and has lived in Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Alaska.

"I'm an 'Inspirational Historical Romance' writer with three, published novellas and two more, one releasing by the end of 2016.  The contract I just signed is to co-write a three-book series with three, promotional novellas set in Helena, Montana, the first ones set to release in 2017.  Two of the novella collections I've been in have reached #5 on the ECPA best-selling list, one of them also reached #8 on Publisher's Weekly." - Becca
