The Plot Thickens: 8 Ways to Bring Fiction to Life
The Plot Thickens: 8 Ways to Bring Fiction to Life
by Noah Lukeman
Edition: Paperback
Prix : CDN$ 13.36
37 used & new from CDN$ 0.40

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Beyond the basics" advice from literary agent Lukeman, Sept. 17 2003
It might seem strange that for a book titled to focus on plot, author/agent Noah Lukeman spends the better part of his time discussing character and characterization. But he, as many others in the biz, will tell you, plot IS character and character IS plot. Without engaging, compelling people directing the action of your story, chances are your reader is not going to get past the first few pages. Lukeman gives great advice for punching up one's characters, testing them, making sure these "people" are right for the story you want to tell and vice versa. THE PLOT THICKENS covers more than just characters, however. It's a great resource for writers at any experience level. Add it to your writer's bookshelf today!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sophisticated concepts from an industry legend, Sept. 17 2003
Ce commentaire est de: Story (Hardcover)
If you've ever heard Robert McKee speak, you know he doesn't pull his punches. He's arrogant, irascible, and probably one of the most brilliant instructors on the art of storytelling. In STORY, McKee covers everything from the basics of plot and character, to the more sophisticated aspects of the craft, such as the use of irony and imagery as they relate to an audience's (or reader's) collective subconscience. This is meaty stuff, and lots of it, delivered in a very readable format. An excellent resource for the advanced writer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Top of the list of "must-have" writing books, Sept. 16 2003
This book is usually at the top of every writer's "must-have" list, and for good reason. Packed with useful, easy to comprehend explanations on everything from writing with emotion to sustaining conflict, to preparing to sell your work -- TECHNIQUES OF THE SELLING WRITER covers it all. Swain's instruction is almost conversational--perhaps a bit rambling in places--but always illuminating. A classic how-to book from an old master. Gotta get this one!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A roadmap to crafting stories that resonate with readers, Sept. 16 2003
Using paradigms explored in the works of Joseph Campbell (Hero With A Thousand Faces) Christopher Vogler delivers an immensely readable, illuminating explanation of why certain classic and successful stories and films resonate so strongly with their respective audiences. Breaking it down into a roadmap of events and character archetypes, Vogler teaches by example how every writer can turn a go-nowhere story idea into a journey that will captivate readers--and editors--alike. Don't miss this great book! (For a list of additional must-have writing books, visit the Resources page at WriteWayPro's website.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The King of Horror shares the tricks of the trade, Sept. 15 2003
Ce commentaire est de: On Writing (Mass Market Paperback)
You don't have to be a fan of Stephen King's books (as I am) to appreciate the gems he shares about getting his start as a writer, struggling to make it, and staying at the top of the game when success--and a potentially fatal accident--came knocking. Anecdotal, motivational, and instructional, ON WRITING provides an entertaining, thought-provoking glimpse into the life of one of our most popular, prolific writers. That it's told in King's inimitable voice makes this book a true joy to read. Don't miss it! (For a list of additional must-have writing books, visit the Resources page at WriteWayPro's website.)
