Dominoes and the Domino Effect
Dominoes are rectangular pieces with a line down their middle and a number of spots on each end (called pips). They can be used to play a variety of games, most commonly in positional games where one player in turn places dominoes edge-to-edge against another.
Domino sets typically contain a single piece for each possible combination of numbers from one to six spots. Some sets have more pips than others; these are called “extended” sets.
The most common are “double six” sets that have each piece with six pips on each end; the other larger sets are double twelve, double fifteen, and double nineteenth sets.
Each of these sets contains a different set of pips and each piece is unique in its own right. This makes the game easier to play than if each tile had a fixed number of pips.
Many people have heard of the “Domino Effect.” The Domino Effect is the phenomenon that when a domino falls, it generates energy that then travels to the next domino. In this way, a small domino can generate enough energy to knock over a much larger domino.
In the realm of personal strategy, this is a powerful concept. It shows how a person can focus their energy on one thing, and then use that energy to move other interests forward.
It’s a great way to think about how plotting a novel works, because every beat of the story is like a domino. The domino effect can help you develop a compelling story by considering how each character reacts to the situation around them.
This approach to writing also helps to develop character-based goals, as opposed to goal-setting that involves making a list of things to do. It’s a way to make your writing more realistic and engaging for readers, as well as to help you focus on the specific details of a character’s story that might otherwise be overlooked in more traditional plotting methods.
When you’re working on a novel, it can be easy to get bogged down with the details. You might not have a clear idea of where you’re going with the story, and it can be difficult to know how to move the plot along.
But the best books are often built on a foundation of strong characters, who develop through their interactions with other people and the environment around them. It’s a way to build a compelling story without overly complicated plotting or heavy-handed action.
The same principle applies to the domino effect in our personal lives. When we start an exercise routine or take up a new hobby, it’s important to create a sense of commitment to that activity.
For example, if you decide to take up cooking, it might not be as exciting as taking up a sport or learning to surf, but a committed commitment to that particular activity will eventually translate into other habits and goals that you’ll want to maintain in the long run.
