In order to make your story shine and engage your readers, it's important to have a deep understanding of storytelling.
Larry Brooks's newest book, Story Physics helps writers gain that understanding from concept to application. Using his theory of the six core competencies of storytelling from his bestselling book Story Engineering as a starting point, Story Physics gives writers tools for story development that delve into the mindset, skills and strategic thinking needed to make a story effective and competitive in the market place.
A Word From the Author:
"Some writers develop stories in a complete vacuum, in context to nothing—no principles, no expectations. They just sit down and spill it onto the page. (I’ve seen writing teachers who advocate this as a process, but they need to add that once spilled, you need to do a lot of cleaning up.) They then wonder why it doesn’t work, and why it takes so long before it does.
That’s the problem this book seeks to address, and solve. It’s the “there are no rules” mind-set I am out to shift toward a higher level of comprehension. I seek to rewrite that cliché, which is actually a bit complicated. The difference between "rules" and "principles" is key to this understanding. By either name, they are the universal underlying story forces or physics that will affect your story one way or another, whether you like them or not, or whether you’re aware of them or not. You can harness those forces for literary good rather than leaving your story to chance or to the unproductive and invalid belief systems that have been your undoing so far."
