Sally explained:

> A Cinderella Graph is a method of teaching plotting. It looks at story

Plotting the graph helps them plot the story?  How appropriate.

I think the thing that really put me off the "Mordant's Need" books by
Donaldson was the way the graph went up and down, up and down, without
the plot making appreciable progress.  I wish I'd had the notion of your
graph to give me a handle on this.  I think at the time I saw it in
terms of tension being put on and relieved.
