I am not an author, but I narrate audiobooks. So my job is to translate the written word into the spoken word and tell a story that is hopefully enthralling to the listener. That means more than simply reading sentences and paragraphs into a microphone. Not that the writing process is entirely alien to me, but I found this book very helpful in my work as I endeavor to faithfully interpret what is written for the eye into a pleasing and entertaining experience for the ear. In fact, before accepting an offer to narrate, my first question for any unfamiliar author whose book I’ve not yet read will be, “What’s the concept of your novel and what is the theme.” Moving forward depends upon the answer.
Thank you, Steven for your entertaining and enlightening story about how to write. I do hear your voice.
Read it and write!
Steven does a great job of combining screenwriting/ advertising/ and sales techniques to help you find a better way to approach your writing. I'm surprised this isn't more popular...I would say its up there with ogilvys works.
He shows us how to use many standard writing techniques though in unique ways. He explained how to use advertising techniques and movie script writing to thin out an amateur writer's flailing attempts and get to the meat of the meal.
I will keep this book around for reference mostly definitely.
An invaluable quick no bulls*** collection of keystone lessons anyone can probably benefit from.
If these ideas are new to you, buy this book. Now. It hammers home principles that must be known.
