Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Discovered Alderson's work only yesterday, watched clips and bought your book which I think is very accessible and combines the BEST from Gardner, Brande, Forster, Campbell and others I have read. Wonderfully grounded, highly pragmatic presentation and yet with soul! Besides the tools, the observation (so obvious now, but she had to say it!) that there's a transference (my term) between the transformation of the plot's (main) characters and the writer's own transformation strikes me as highly original...never read this before, pure gold. Really looking forward to finishing not just your course but my novel, too!

Perfect for my disorganized brain! 3. August 2012
Von LibertysYarn - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I snagged the The Plot Whisperer: Secrets of Story Structure Any Writer Can Master from my local library and loved it! I am a very visual person, her diagrams and down to earth writing style helped me better visualize the story I had been desperately trying to compose. My pile of post-its became a navigable map guiding my writing toward a powerful and meaningful tale. I found holes in my plans, ideas for improvement, and she empowered me to make those changes with gentle, actionable tasks.

I ordered the workbook as soon as I discovered it was available. The workbook is a strong supplement to the book. I feel like the book is more the 'whats' and the workbook is more 'hows'. The ideal option is to have both books together, but I don't think you must have both to benefit from her guidance.

Many writing books have crossed my desk. This is the strongest plotting book I have read so far. =D

A Must for Any Writer - Even those who think they know plot! 20. Juli 2012
Von Marilee - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
After poring over The Plot Whisperer, I was beyond excited to learn that a workbook was coming out. I pre-ordered it the same day and waited and waited for the release date. Imagine my excitement when it shipped early! That excitement increased when I started reading it.
I read through it once and then went back and started working through it. For the first time, I truly understand what I've been missing and, even better, I truly understand what to do!
Writers at all levels can benefit greatly from this book!

The Opening Scene 10. Juni 2013
Von SueBE - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
My first fantasy novel has become an ongoing project that has sucked me in and spat me out countless times. My plot as a whole is solid, but the beginning has been a challenge. When I say that, I'm being polite.

I took my first beginning to my critique group. Nope. It was too confusing, because I had started the story too late. I started the story earlier and tried again.

I took the new first chapter to my critique group. Still not enough backstory so I started still earlier.

When that didn't work, my confidence deflated. I remembered a plotting diagram in the Plot Whisper and The Plot Whisperer Workbook. They were in my "to review" stack. What better way to test them than this first chapter fiasco? I mentally issued the author a challenge. Drag me out of this writing slump, Martha Alderson. I dare you.

The plot diagram, Alderson's Plot Planner, includes the character's emotional development. Although I was convinced that the problem was plot not emotion, I sat down to do the activities. After all, a dare is a dare.

I created character emotional profiles for my protagonist, my antagonist and side kick. Apparently, Mr. Sidekick is not the goody-two-shoes people see; this new knowledge deepened the story.

I typed a list of scenes. Not difficult, but they were more numerous than I had expected.

I found a 6-foot-long piece of paper as recommended by Alderson for a full-sized plot planner. I wasn't convinced I needed this much, but I typed my scenes including plot, subplot, emotional arc, dramatic action and theme. As I cut and taped to the chart, I realized it would take 6 feet of paper. Then I got another shocker. Original scene #1 was now scene #6, at the first turning point.

I had originally started the story way too late, a fact I would have seen on this type of plot diagram. Alderson has you look at turning points. At the first one, your character commits to a course of action different from his opening goal.

At the turning point, my character decides on revenge. If I had been using the Plotter from the start, I would have plunked down a revenge chapter and realized that the story needs to build to this point, not start here.

I highly recommend these books. The Plot Whisperer explains the concepts you will use, showing how each is essential. The workbook takes you through exercises that get the job done.

There are sections on exploring theme; creating story arcs for your antagonist and secondary characters; how and where to work in details; testing cause and effect; and working in backstory.

I'm looking forward to playing with theme but I'll also study the sections on backstory and all the rest. Why? Alderson has already surprised me multiple times by supplying tools I need before I understand that I need them.

Perfect Companion 12. August 2012
Von Marilyn Gordon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Martha Alderson has created a perfect companion for her earlier Plot Whisperer:Secrets of Story Structure Any Writer Can Master. She has also provided a perfect personal companion to accompany writers on a carefully supported journey to success. The dedication tells us the author has a love of the craft instilled by her father at an early age. The readers know she brings his gift full circle by giving them what they need to believe in themselves.She sets up her organization immediatley and clearly states how the ideas will be presented. The reader is encouraged to make the book very personal by working through the exercises that will give their own work foundation and direction. As with the earlier book, she is generous in her use of fine literature of all types to show how an author creates plot and employs sound technique. This makes it easy to think about and fill in templates and other visual aids creating the structure of ones own novel.
This book along with the first would certainly be valuable tools for the solitary writer or for the writer participating in a writing group. Martha Alderson is definitely an author who writes to support the personal satisfaction and success of others.

Best plotting tool on the market 6. September 2012
Von Eric from Chicago - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It would be insane for a farmer to try to plow his fields with a shovel. It would be exhausting work with little results. Farmers need tractors to plows fields. Tractors allow the farmer to plow more land in a very short amount of time with no exhaustion and the end result is food on the table and money in the bank. Martha's book, The Plot Whisperer's Workbook. Is the tractor that will revolutionize your writing. Take it from me. I've tried every writer's plotting aid out there. They were all shovels compared to Martha's workbook. I've already had my first novel optioned for film and when I pitched my book to 17 agents at a pitch slam in New York, they all requested a copy of the manuscript. I now have an agent and am on my way to being published. I'd still be hopelessly digging away one shovel at a time if it weren't for The Plot Whisperer's Workbook (I also bought the companion book which provides a thorough explanation of the essentials of plotting - the workbook lays out the process step by step.) You just fill in the blank forms in the book. When you finish filling in the workbook, all of the parts of your story that you've been unable to pull together (the plot and subplots and character arc and theme and action and suspense) will finally come together as the story you have to tell, the story you've been trying to tell, the story you've been
dreaming to tell. If you're serious about being published, whether you're just starting or working on a revision of a completed manuscript, The Plot Whisperer's Workbook will help you reach your goal. It won't write your story for you but it will simplify the writing process so you can enjoy
writing your story and getting it published! Three cheers, FIVE stars and hip hip hooray for The Plot
Whisperer's Workbook!
