The Amazon book description for ROCK YOUR PLOT includes:
Are you stuck trying to write a novel?
Have you tried writing several stories, only to stall out in the middle and move on to a new project?
Do you like the idea of plot outlines, but have difficulty figuring out what happens next, or what should happen where?
Or are you a writer who hates outlining, preferring to write a novel organically– but still feel like your story needs more plot and structure?
Outlining, whether it’s just the turning points or a comprehensive scene by scene plot outline, might help you get past your block.
ROCK YOUR PLOT: A Simple System for Plotting Your Novel teaches a clear, flexible process to help you with your:
- Premise: test your premise for inherent conflict and sustainability.
- Characterization: create strong characters with urgent goals, understandable motivation, and tons of obstacles.
- Plot outline, turning points: use those characters to build logical and powerful plot points and complete character arcs.
- Plot outline, scene-by-scene: Develop a sequence of dynamic scenes that propels your reader through your story.
Cathy Yardley's ROCK YOUR PLOT is straight forward and easy to understand and follow. Step by step, a writer is able to build a book using the steps presented. Best $2.99 I've ever spent! What a phenomenal BARGAIN. Highly Recommend!
