Plotting Simplified

Book Review Friday
by Barbara Latta
Write With Excellence

In Plotting Simplified, Story Structure Tips for the Break-out Novelist Eddie Jones lays out a plan for the beginning novelist to follow in their writing journey.

Defining the three elements of storytelling as character, plot, and conflict, Eddie shows the reader the meaning of each and uses examples from books to explain the concepts.
Learning to write interesting characters determines whether a reader will remain focused on the book. The story must contain conflict, characters must have goals to achieve, and the conclusion needs to show the change taking place in the protagonist’s life.

This short, but helpful book, charts the path for those breaking into the novel aspect of writing with instruction on obtaining the needed character development.

Eddie Jones has also written a middle-grade novel, The Curse of Captain LaFoote and co-authored with Cindy Sproles, He Said, She Said: A Devotional Guide to Cultivating a Life of Passion.


All these books are available at Barbara's Bookstore.
