Do you have a great idea for a novel, but don't know how/where to begin?
You have 'The Horribles,' that panicky feeling writers experience when they WANT to write, but have no clue WHAT to write.
Never Fear. this book will help you!
A simple, step by step method for building a successful storyline from your basic idea.
Designed for the busy lifestyle, it's simple enough to read in one sitting, yet powerful enough to demonstrate the mysteries of the modern story structure.
No more dull openings. No saggy middles. And how to construct an exciting, edge-of-your-seat climax!
I explain story structure and demonstrate plot points, although I call them Stepping Stones because, when used correctly, they guide you through the maze of modern story structure.
As a BONUS, I’ve included how I used the Stepping Stones to build my novel, Ten Times Guilty!
WHAT AN INSPIRATION!
portion of Brenda Hill's amazing book got me excited all over again
about writing! I can't wait until I receive my own copy. Thinking about
characters and plot lines. Not judging it, but throwing it all out there
and letting your imagination run wild. There's always time to reign all
those thoughts in later and give them structure, but Brenda captured
the sheer joy of putting thoughts/ideas/dreams on paper. If I didn't
already love writing, I'd want to try it because she makes it seem like a
wonderful adventure rather than a dull chore.
THIS BOOK WILL BE YOUR BEST FRIEND!
writer who has very little in the way of innate organizational skills, I
just want to say that this book has been my best friend! It really lays
out the basics in pulling one's ideas together to make a coherent
story. I have used it as a guide in several stories I've written. It's
a superb tool to keep writers on track. I'd recommend it to any
writer, new or experienced.

I am very
pleased with this one. As another reviewer commented, yes, it has many
blank forms to use, but that's the point! Fill in the blanks, plot your
novel, stay on course. Every writer is different, and works
differently, but I personally am finiding the book to be a great help!
