This week’s episode is brought to you by John Brown’s
A cracking good story idea requires five critical elements.
Until you have all five, you’ll struggle to plot. You’ll write a few scenes and run out of gas. You’ll feel like the story just isn’t going anywhere. And that’s because it isn’t. It can’t. A story won’t do what a story needs to do without all five elements.
However, once you develop these things, your story will suddenly roar to life. Brown cuts through all the confusion and clearly explains what those five elements are with an abundance of examples. He also reveals the down-to-earth, practical secrets to developing ideas. That means when you finish the book, not only will you’ll know exactly what you need to develop, you’ll also know how to get it done.
No more wasting time. No more struggling, wondering what to do. No more thinking you just don’t have what it takes. Humans are built for story. It’s wired into our brains. You can develop terrific story ideas on purpose instead of on accident. All you need is a little illumination. Create Story Ideas that Beg to Be Written provides that light, including:
- The real key to creativity (and you’ve got loads of it)
- Why “show, don’t tell” causes problems
- How to make readers care about your characters
- What really drives your plot
- And much more.
