How to Craft a Great Story: How to Master Plot, Structure and Form in Your Creative Writing

Author(s): Chris Sykes

On Writing

How to Craft a Great Story takes you step by step through the process of creating a compelling and coherent plot and structure. It covers such basics as the traditional story arcs, and such advanced information as finding balance and marrying structure and form.


Each chapter contains a diagnostic test, case studies, practical exercises, and Aide Memoire boxes. Each chapter concludes with a reminder of the key points of the chapter (Focus Points) and a round-up of what to expect in the next (Next Step) will whet your appetite for what's coming and how it relates to what you've just read.


Covering some of the most commonly raised questions in creative writing courses, it is perfect for anyone who needs the next step on from the basic 'how to write a novel'.
