STORY CRISIS, STORY CLIMAX 2scsc2.cvr.1

Build a Problem/Decision Arc in Your Novel (Crisis Climax, Book 2)

Genre: Writing Skills

$3.99

Overview
What is the single most important practice of high-volume fiction writers? They ensure that they have a coherent progression of scenes before they start writing. This means shaping the raw events of your story into a compelling scene list, a stairway of scenes to your novel. Let “Story Crisis, Story Climax 2″ show you how!
In this book we will dig deep into what the plot pressure points in each film, from the Inciting Incident to the Crisis Climax, all have in common – each throws a problem in the path of the hero, who then responds with a decision. In a very real sense it is these five problems and decisions that generate the scenes of your novel.

From an undead world … to global zombie war …
It’s been a year since Toey landed in Bangkok to a world gone mad.

“I was trying to write then and I found the greatest difficulty, aside from knowing truly what you really felt, rather than what you were supposed to feel, and had been taught to feel, was to put down what really happened in action; what the actual things were which produced the emotion that you experienced. In writing for a newspaper you told what happened and, with one trick and another, you communicated the emotion aided by the element of timeliness which gives a certain emotion to any account of something that has happened on that day; but the real thing, the sequence of motion and fact which made the emotion and which would be as valid in a year or in ten years or, with luck and if you stated it purely enough, always, was beyond me and I was working very hard to get it.” – Ernest Hemingway
