"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
Martha Alderson, founder of PlotWrMo, has worked with hundreds of writers in plot workshops, retreats, and plot consultations for more than fifteen years. Her clients include bestselling authors, New York editors, and Hollywood movie directors. She is the author of The Plot Whisperer.
