Reviews

"Martha Alderson, a.k.a "The Plot Whisperer," has been a nationally recognized plot consultant for 15 years. Here she offers loads of exercises to help writers think clearly about plot and activate a story's momentum. This book's practical exercises will show writers how to bring 'moments of transformation' into their own stories." --Writer Magazine

"Unlike many other programs, Alderson asks you to come up with your own goal. Planning to write a screenplay? Or a novel? See how long a comparable work is, then divide that number by 30. Write this number of words daily for 30 days and you will have a completed draft. All you need to get yourself moving are the prompts in this book. How do I know? 2200 words in two days and counting. Not bad for someone who can't stand writing prompts." --Women on Writing
