    I appreciate all the effort the authors put into this book, however, I m sorry to say I did not come away feeling like I had learned anything The writing is top notch, but I actually found it overwhelming to read For what it is a how to book it was overly descriptive and used too many big words and I m not a lazy reader by any means I often found my eyes crossing and had to read sentences paragr...

    It s taking me a long time to read Writing Deep Scenes The content is rich and the information is presented in a interesting, engaging manner The authors love and respect for writing and authors is evident on every page As I read, I find myself stopping to apply their principles to my own writing I am the author of seven published novels and several unpublished Each boo...

    Revved up after reading Martha Alderson and Jordan Rosenfeld s Writing Deep Scenes Plotting Your Story Through Action, Emotion, Theme.I m impressed with how this co authored book reads as a singular voice throughout There is a seamless, conversational tone that feels like a one on one coaching session with an editor or coach who encourages the writer to dig deeper, and move toward exciting storytelling.First, there is an overview of plot, scenes, and scene types, and then Alderson and Rosenfeld delve deeply into the layers of Action what happens , Emotion how characters and readers feel throughout the journey , and Theme the meaning produced in the process The author s guide you toward stronger scene by scene, forward movement, and ultimately, a tighter and engaging plot.There are expertly cited examples of both classical and modern literature, across genre, that illustrate Alderson and Rosenfeld s points on how to effectively engage readers through plot again with the use of scenes that delve further into Action, Emotion, and Theme.The role of emotion how characters and readers feel throughout the journey is, I find, something that is overlooked in writer s how to reference books however I feel it is a vital element of the craft of storytelling That said, I particularly appreciate Alderson and Rosenfeld s reminders of how emotion in individual scenes and throughout the entire story one seeks to tell can effectively serve a plot s forward momentum no matter the genre.As ...

    To all my writer friends, this is one book you should read I like to write myself, and I don t have much money Reading this was just as informative as taking classes or attending a conference The book focuses on different types of scenes found in novels as well as three basic elements action, emotion and theme After rea...

    A bulk of the good information is in the front half of this, while the back half over extends some explanations Some readers will appreciate the extra detail, but I could have done with about 60% less book Overall, not a bad point of view on writing.

    Let me start this by saying that at one point the authors reference Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn, and then proceed to describe her novel Dark Places instead It was referenced correctly later in the book, but that mistake drove me wild and made me doubt many of the other things I read in this book Why wasn t that caught in editing I m a writer and am currently working on a final draft of a novel that I hope to get traditionally published I picked up this book in the hopes it would help me figure out 1 how to outline my plots better and 2 how to figure out which scenes are necessary and which scenes should be cut from my early drafts I liked the explanation of the four basic parts of a plot and which scenes work best in which parts The first half of this book pretty much addressed what I wanted to get from it However, I finished this book feeling unsure who this is intended for It s obviously not for novice writers as there is a certain level of knowing how to construct compelling plot and characters assumed But I m also not sure if it s for writers like me who have written enough to know generally what we re doing but might need refinement for technique The advice here felt very repetitive and a lot of the breakdowns of scene types were borderline juvenile I wasn t impressed by the many examples from published works g...

    I didn t get much out of this book It seemed to contain a lot of potentially worthwhile content, so it may be that it simply did not help me as a writer or did not help me at this point in my writing career Maybe other writers would value it, or maybe I will come back to it someday and get out of it.The information seemed complicated the book presents three types of material action, emotion, dialogue , various stages a book goes through along with four energetic markers, and a slew of scene types It contains specifics, like the length of this section must be about twice the length of that section, and this marker must occur at this point in the book, and things must get better and then worse until we reach the such and such point I m paraphrasing I don t want to take the time to provide actual quotes The book also uses a concept of shadows and light that I could not follow.I tried to apply the ideas to my work in progress and could not fit them at all So either my writing is not very advanced, or this book s ideas are not the end all be all of writing books Overall, it felt like a very complicated system that left me confounded about a third of the way through, I started skimming, and ultimately it be...

    Let me start by saying this is probably the first non fiction book I ve read since college, and even back then, I did my best to skim Non fiction just isn t really my thing, and this book has a very technical voice Plot is how the dramatic events action in a story change and or transform the main character emotion over time in a meaningful way theme The degree of character change or transformation can vary dramatically depending on the genre.I can t even read that without hearing a professor voice in my head That being said, I m glad I read this Once you pick through the technical jargon, there is a lot of good advice, and while reading through it from front to end, I was able to highlight my favorites, which turned out to be 38 pieces of note I found the types of scenes and developing the theme of your novel especially helpful and I m sure I ll be going back to r...

    Great, great, great book This was a phenomenal look into the standard modern story structure, as well as a deeper look into scenes themselves This should be a must read for any aspiring writer, be it screenplay, novel, short story, or stage play Anything with a plot and scenes read this book.

    I got a strong sense of the what in this book, i.e., the characteristics of a good scene, but definitely not the how, as in how to make that happen, i.e., practical tips It could be better, but I m not sure how Maybe this book could just write my book for me Or at least tell me about how to do it I would have liked for there to be description, analysis, and examples of the 15 scene types mentioned in the book and felt that the authors kind of quickly blew by that essential and foundational informati...
