Your "Why" for writing will also be their "Why" for reading. 

Are you struggling to take your story to the next level? Would you like to know the best ways to create intrigue and have your readers rave about your book? Plotting is a step-by-step guide that takes you through the process of developing compelling plots from beginning to end.  

With tips and tricks taken straight from professional writers, the novelist will learn how to use plotlines for maximum effect while retaining creative freedom.  

Making conflict real 

Plotting helps the author weave suspense through improved conflict writing, centered around a developing plot. Characters are challenged and affected and emerge changed in ways that infuse emotions in your readers so that they cannot help but be personally invested in the welfare of your protagonist.  

Marsh explains in concise, straightforward language and with clear examples the benefits of knowing where you are going with your novel; where the plotline starts (exposition) to how it ends (resolution) and how working with an overview helps to captivate readers in terms of the lessons learned and the experience of life through the eyes of your characters.  

Eight steps to conflict resolution 

This audiobook acts as a go-to framework for all levels of writers and introduces an eight-step process to adding substance to your story through plotting; these include:   

  • Get inspired
  • Getting direction
  • Turn your ideas into a story
  • Create your story arc
  • Start with the end

From understanding the basic principles of a plotline to placing your characters into situations that will help you get inside their head more, Marsh demonstrates the ways to make a plot event a more profound experience for the reader, to activate emotions and keep them engaged until the end of the book.

Vague approaches on the basics

Nothing in this book is new or specific enough to do anything else than repeat the obvious. It's good enough to give you an idea on how to approach story outlining and the basics of plot structure. I recomment checking out George Lucas' 'Scriptwriting for anyone' first, as it provides a more in depth view of the topics presented here, while giving actual examples and a step by step guide to plotting and writing.
