Review

Praise for the Advanced Fiction Writing series

"Writing gurus come and go, but there will always be Randy Ingermanson at the center of that small universe of those who enter this arena. With his Snowflake approach having become an enduring and universally-valued window into the way stories are built, Randy has the unique claim to having changed the game for writers while raising the bar for aspiring teachers, as well." -- Larry Brooks, bestselling author of Story Engineering

"Randy's snowflake method has helped tens of thousands of writers formulate their ideas and get their thoughts on paper. With an engineer's precision, he pinpoints specific principles that identify weaknesses in stories and guides you through a process to solve them." -- Steven James, bestselling author of Troubleshooting Your Novel

"Randy Ingermanson knows the terrain of structure, and is a sure-footed guide to the mountain regions of solid, salable fiction." -- James Scott Bell, bestselling author of Write Your Novel From the Middle

From the Author

When I started writing back in 1988, I had a dream to write a great novel. One that would excite readers. One that would move them emotionally. One I could be proud of. 

I wrote and wrote and wrote, but after a couple of years, I admitted that something was missing. I could write action and dialogue and all that. 

But my scenes weren't working. And I couldn't figure out why. Then I discovered Dwight Swain's classic book, Techniques of the Selling Writer

Dwight's book changed my life, practically overnight. I now understood what made scenes work and how to fix them when they were broken. I went on to get published, to win many awards, and to build a fan base of excited readers.

And I also became a fiction-writing teacher known all around the world. One of the things I'm famous for is my teaching on how to write emotively-powerful scenes. Scenes that move a reader. Scenes that sell books.

I learned most of what I know of scene structure from Dwight Swain. Of course I've added a number of my own ideas--but I'm standing on the shoulders of a giant. I wish you great success in your writing, and I expect you'll add your own insights to the grand tradition I inherited from Professor Swain, which I now pass on to you.
