Overview

In this one volume are personal selections by the author from his three classics, Steal this Plot!; Make That Scene; and "Shut up!" He Explained.

Selecting parts of three of his previous books to guide you though the art of writing a novel, William Noble starts by asking three questions:

• What's happening?
• Who am I?
• Where am I?

and then uses the answers to create a solid foundation for developing a story.
With this structure in place, he demonstrates how to move on to motivating the story, establishing a sense of place, and creating tension.
Noble has added new material on developing characters and using point of view to help you get your story across.

"The 'what' section, dealing with plot motivators and 'story spicers' and comprising a third of the book, is worth the price alone."
