The first novel-writing guide from the best-selling Save the Cat! story-structure series, which reveals the 15 essential plot points needed to make any novel a success.
Novelist Jessica Brody presents a comprehensive story-structure guide for novelists that applies the famed Save the Cat! screenwriting methodology to the world of novel writing. Revealing the 15 "beats" (plot points) that comprise a successful story--from the opening image to the finale--this book lays out the Ten Story Genres (Monster in the House; Whydunit; Dude with a Problem) alongside quirky, original insights (Save the Cat; Shard of Glass) to help novelists craft a plot that will captivate--and a novel that will sell.
With a PDF that includes charts, lists, and exercises from the book.
Great Writing Guide
I really enjoyed this book and fell like it gave me a great foundation to finally finish my years long work in progress. Previous comments about the PDF are not accurate. You CAN download the PDF, but you have to do it from your iTunes library. There are instructions on youtube for downloading audio book PDF's from iTunes if you need help.
Great Book but no PDF
Love this title and worth the purchase. I wish the PDF that is referred to was included. I checked my library per the instructions I found online and still was unable to find it. Would have given this 5 stars if it included the PDF.
