Looking for the perfect gift for the novelist on your list? Look no further....Story Structure Architect by Schmidt is perfect.
THis book's tagline is "a writer's guide to building dramatic situations & compelling characters"...and boy, does it deliver.
A friend gave me this book a couple of years ago, and I've highlighted my way through it, finding myself going back to it time and again. Why? Because it's that good.
Broken into four parts, the book takes you from drafting a plan for your book, to building the structure, to adding stories, and concluding with finishing touches. Over 55 situation examples are offered, giving you plenty of opportunity to learn and grow as you move through the exercises.
This book is a definite keeper for every novelist at every level, writing in every genre.
