Book Review Friday
by Barbara Latta
If you are a writer you have read all kinds of how-to books on story, plot, and dialogue. They all have helpful advice to speed your story along.
How To Write A Novel Using the Snowflake Method has a different approach to aiding a writer in the task of competing a novel. Randy Ingermanson takes the tale of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" and intertwines a writing school within the story.
It seems Goldilocks wants to be a writer and who knew Baby Bear was a writing teacher? I would never have thought Robin Hood would stop romping through the forest long enough to be still and listen in a class on writing. He does have some snide comments for the instructor. Old Mother Hubbard is still looking for that bone, but the Big Bad Wolf? His career as a literary agent is threatened by accusations from one of the Three Pigs.
This humorous look at the writing world will stick with you while teaching all the basics about putting a story together, writing a synopsis, and an outline.
This book is one of the best writing helps I have ever read. It is available at www.amazon.com.
