Story Genius

Autor Lisa Cron
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 9 aug 2016
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.
"Story Genius" is a foolproof program that saves writers from penning hundreds of pages only to realize that something's not working and they have to start again. Informed by story consultant Lisa Cron's science-based insights into how story structure is built into the architecture of the brain, this guide shows writers how to plumb the nitty-gritty details of their raw idea to organically generate a story scene by scene. Once writers reach the end of Cron's program, they will have both a blueprint that works and plenty of compelling writing suitable for their finished novel--allowing them to write forward with confidence.
