Recently I read Writing Deep Scenes: Plotting Your Story through Action, Emotion, and Theme (Alderson, Rosenfeld). Focusing on how emotion drives the plot of a story, Writing Deep Scenes shows you how to fully mine the possibilities to get to the heart of your work. Basic plot construction is also discussed in terms of four-act structure.
For those who get impatient with repetition, take note: they do rehash details throughout. But for me, it meant the difference between flipping back and forth to find those golden nuggets and plowing ahead.
I hated to return this one to the library. I had more post-it tabs in there than anyone has a right to!
My review was posted this morning on The Writer's Workout. Take a look!
