All successful writers use resonance to enhance their stories by drawing power from stories that came before, by resonating with their readers' experiences, and by resonating within their own works.

In this book, you'll learn exactly what resonance is and how to use it to make your stories more powerful. You'll see how it is used in literature and other art forms, and how one writer, J. R. R. Tolkien, mastered it in his work.

An excellent book on an often overlooked topic in writing. Farland dives into the subject of resonance in works and uses examples to show how some of today's blockbuster hits key off small queues that link them with other works. This is a fascinating study on resonance in writing and will help writers tap into a pool of shared experiences and references. David Farland is an incredible teacher and writer. This, along with his companion book Million Dollar Outlines, is a straight to the point, no nonsense, text. Farland has a way of making even some of the most complicated topics seem plain as day. His instructional books are highly recommended.
