About the Book:
Most fiction-writing books offer a cliched and paint-by-number approach to plot development and story structure, rehash overused mythic archetypes, or give theoretical advice that doesn't offer fiction writers the practical step-by-step advice they need. Story Trumps Structure shows writers how to create a compelling, believable story that can only come from trusting the narrative process. By demystifying narrative, teaching writers the core ingredients to plot development, and illustrating the ways that master storytellers engage readers, Story Trumps Structure provides a fresh approach to helping all fiction writers better shape their craft.
