This book is amazing. It is a hidden gem and I hope this review helps others give it a chance.
There are three layers to this book - the first layer is that you get to read a novel about a girl who learns how to use the Snowflake method on her own story. You learn right along side Goldilocks without realizing you're learning. The examples she reviews with Baby Bear are just as good as if you went to a conference on your own.
The second layer is seeing the application of the lessons. You realize through the story (for me it was about halfway through) that you are actually seeing a plot line unfold that has nothing to do with the World War II story Goldilocks is writing. You might even realize this is the real example Randy was trying to give, not the WWII romance.
The third is the actual instruction - and let me say, this instruction was so much clearer than what was on the website. Maybe it's because of the first two layers... but I really feel like I learned so much more from this book than others.
Writing books talk about writing like it's the driest thing in the world. Randy's book talks about writing and shows us, three times, that his method works.
I don't know what type of writer you are. Maybe the Snowflake method doesn't work for you. But if you've ever read up on it and it sounded interesting, give this book a shot! It is well worth it.
The book starts out as a story while teaching you the 10 steps to the Snowflake method. So you not only have an entertaining way to learn, but you also get solid examples.
I love the new step 9(it differs from his website).
This book takes the information learned from his website and demonstrates it using the story presented in the beginning of the book. I learned that I didn't fully understand the way it was supposed to work. I also found that I seemed to have been doing it right...I just haven't finished yet.
I found that the main character had the same fears and doubts that I did. Exactly. It was as if Dr. Ingermanson could read my thoughts as I read.
I found it extremely hard to put down. I just purchased this the day before yesterday and i finished it this morning.
After reading this book, I did all ten steps and in just two months and seven days after started my first draft, I finished it. It was 232 double-spaced using 12 Courier New Font. I am currently planning the next one...
What follows is a summary of the 10 steps and then the actual document used by the author to create the business fable of the first half. Everything is clear and makes novel writing seem doable, as long you’re willing to put in the work. The author never prescribes his method as perfect or perfect for everyone, nor does he offer a quick fix. He does offer an approach that can be followed and has been to his own and thousands of students’ success.
The relief I felt when I discovered the Storyfix blog by Larry Brooks (and his books) is heightened with the reading/highlighting/bookmarking of The Snowflake Method. I love a good, flexible, customizable plan and can’t wait to try it.
