A new approach for plotters, pantsters, and everyone in between!
What’s the best way to write a “next level” novel? Some writers start at the beginning and let the story unfold without a plan. They are called “pantsers,” because they write by the “seat of the pants.”
Other writers plan and outline and know the ending before they start. These are the “plotters.”
The two sides never seem to agree with each other on the best approach.
But what if it’s not the beginning or the end that is the key to a successful book? What if, amazing as it may seem, the place to begin writing your novel is in the very middle of the story?
I’m excited to tell you, that’s exactly where you’ll find it. I am truly jazzed about the technique I discovered. I’ve used it on every book of mine since, and have now set it out for you in this volume.
My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This is one of the best writing books I’ve ever read. It will revolutionize the way you see your story world. I finished it within a day because it was so insightful and easy to understand. The basic premise is there is something that happens at the midpoint of every good novel and movie that connects the entire story. By understanding that midpoint and writing around it, we can transform out stories into something great. I highly recommend this book to all writers.
