About the Author
Top customer reviews
It's a book that breaks down the principles underlying the types of stories we tell,
why and how we tell them and what makes them work. Ronald Tobias breaks these
"master plots" into dramatic phases which allow a writer to maintain a structure
without being robbed of their own creativity. Your writing is never forced by
"template" into some cookie cutter model, but you're given principles to apply
depending on the kind of story you want to tell. A masterfully written and
extremely useful book.
