    Good general stuff about plots what goes in them, what doesn t, as well as subplots, conflict, andNo technical stuff, no arcs, diagrams, etc, thank goodness Not Dwight Swain or Donald Maass, but good enough to learn from Just bought another one in this series.

    I quite enjoyed this book It jumps right into the meat and delivers exactly what it promises no nonsense, easy to digest tips on how to make your plot sizzle Unfortunately, I only found out when I was quite far in that this is actually the third in a series oh well, I ve added the first Nail Your Novel Why Writers Abandon Books And How You Can Draft, Fix and Finish With Confidence to my to read shelf.My only real problem with this book was in the examples from literature Just about eve I quite enjoyed this book It jumps right into the meat and delivers exactly what it promises no nonsense, easy to digest tips on how to make your plot sizzle Unfortunately, I only found out when I was quite far in that this is actually the third in a series oh well, I ve added the first Nail Your Novel Why Writers Abandon Books And How You Can Draft, Fix and Finish With Confidence to my to read shelf.My only real problem with this book was in the examples from literature Just about every chapter mentions at least one famous or bestselling book to prove its point The author briefly explains how the author of that particular book achieved whatever effect the chapter s talking about, but in general, mostly assume you ve read them The problem is, I ve read maybe 5% of all the books she referenced.The other thing is that the formatting was strange I don t know if it was just Scribd I doubt it, because I ve never encountered this particular problem before , but most of the chapter headings appeared after the closing paragraph of the previous chapter, followed by a page break, followed by the first paragraph of the next chapter It was weird, but I got used to it.Anyway, this is definitely going on my Reference shelf in Scribd, and I ll be referring to it often.Click here to find out where you can get the ebook

About the Author: Roz Morris

What do I read Fiction that cares about with Drama, PDF/EPUB ç characters AND plot Although I m a sucker for beautiful language, I like a story too, dammit I m a slow reader because I m easily trapped by lovely sentences and ideas, and when I enjoy a book I m reluctant to leave its world behindI live in London with my writer husband, and our house is mostly decorated with bookshelves so much so that different rooms Writing Plots PDF \ are devoted to different categories, like a shop My study, where I m writing this now, is the fiction room and when I look up from my keyboard it s a pleasure to see the spines of novels that have been important to meI m a journalist, ghostwriter, editor and writing coach, and I m also coming out from behind the ghosting curtain with novels of my ownI ve got six books in circulation books that Plots with Drama, Epub â I can admit to, that is Three are about writing the Nail Your Novel series I also have two nailed novels My Memories of a Future Life is a contemporary reincarnation story with a twist that asks as many questions as it answers Lifeform Three is a science fiction fable in the tradition of Ray Bradbury And I have a book of true travel tales, Not Quite Lost Travels Without A Sense of Direction Sign up for my newsletter.
