Itâs every novelistâs greatest fear: pouring their blood, sweat, and tears into writing hundreds of pages only to realize that their story has no sense of urgency, no internal logic, and so is a page one rewrite.Â
The prevailing wisdom in the writing community is that there are just two ways around this problem: pantsing (winging it) and plotting (focusing on the external plot). Story coach Lisa Cron has spent her career discovering why these methods donât work and coming up with a powerful alternative, based on the science behind what our brains are wired to crave in every story we read (and itâs not what you think).Â
In Story Genius Cron takes you, step-by-step, through the creation of a novel from the first glimmer of an idea, to a complete multilayered blueprintâincluding fully realized scenesâthat evolves into a first draft with the authority, richness, and command of a riveting sixth or seventh draft.
About: Following on the heels of Lisa Cron's breakout first book, Wired for Story, this writing guide reveals how to use cognitive storytelling strategies to build a scene-by-scene blueprint for a riveting story.
