Cohesive Story Building 3d cover

Volume 2: Cohesive Story Building

Without layering, a story is one-dimensional, unbelievable, boring. Layers mean stronger characters, settings, plots, suspense, intrigue, emotions and motivation. Layering also produces cohesion of all elements. Characters must blend naturally with the setting the writer has placed them, just as plot becomes an organic part of character and setting. If a story doesn’t work, it could very well be because the elements aren’t cohesive. Cohesive Story Building shows how each element hinges on the other two and how to mix them until they fuse irrevocably. Additionally, Cohesive Story Building carefully explores each of stage of story development from brainstorming and outlining to drafting and revision. From a thorough look at the fundamentals of writing to comprehensive story building techniques, as well as submission guidelines and etiquette, this must-have guide will see writers through the entire book writing process from start to finish.


Set within the framework of comparing the process of building a house to the process of building a story, Cohesive Story Building gives a solid plan of action from start to finish through in-depth examples and exercises, and leave-no-stone-unturned checklists that will help writers take the plan into their own writing. Features detailed examples from published books to illustrate story-building principles.


Those who have read Karen S. Wiesner’s reference First Draft Outline, which focuses on in-depth outlining and goal-setting, will find Cohesive Story Building a perfect companion to that book.

3D Fiction Fundamentals Series, Volume 4: Writing the Overarching SeriesVolume 4: Writing the Overarching Series (or How I Sent a Clumsy Girl into Outer Space)

Reach for the stars!


The Overarching Series is the most complicated to read and write. In this specialized type of series, none of the installments can truly be standalones. They must be read as a set in sequence to make sense. Reader satisfaction is only partially achieved in each volume because just the story arcs tie up while the series arc only resolves in the final.


Speculative fiction is particularly well-suited to the Overarching Series structure because the genres under this umbrella have enormous requirements when it comes to:


1) World building. Crafting a variety of environments–maybe an entire universe–is required along with how to traverse, populate, and fill it with abundant, three-dimensional life.


2) Character building. Humans need to fit uniquely in the new universe or time period being created. Characters might be from an alien or supernatural culture that the author has to construct distinctively, particularly for popular, done-to-death classifications.


This resource also includes:

-An overview of types of series along with story and series arcs basics and ways to establish them early.

-The lowdown on series standalone story installments versus series arc sequel hook endings or even cliffhanger endings characteristic of an Overarching Series.

-Special techniques to avoid crafting burnout and methods to formulate and utilize established knowns and standard operating procedures.

-Supplemental materials, unique techniques, and developmental tools for building character and world profiles.


If your eyes are fixed on a crafting a series like no other, Writing the Overarching Series will help you reach for the stars.Read More

3D Fiction Fundamentals Series, Volume 5: CPR for Dead or Lifeless Fiction 3d cover Volume 6: CPR for Dead or Lifeless Fiction: A Writer’s Guide to Deep and Multifaceted Development and Progression of Characters, Plots, and Relationships

Characters: Do your characters have no obvious signs of life, nothing that gives them unique personality, perspective, and passion?


Plots: Are plots and conflicts created spur of the moment with no set up, build up, curiosity, or tension?


Relationships: Are your characters merely going through the motions with each other?


All of these and more are signs of dead or lifeless stories. The three core elements of story–Characters, Plots, and Relationships (CPR)–need to be developed three dimensionally. To truly be living, characters aren’t simply existing and going through the motions. They possess fully developed external and internal conflicts. They’re interacting in dynamic, realistic, and believable relationships. They have multidimensional character attributes that give them both vitality and voice. Finally, they’re engaged in what makes life worthwhile with definable goals and motivations.


This resource teaches writers how to identify dead or lifeless characters, plots, and relationships; establish proper setup; plant the seeds early with in-depth sketches; and pinpoint weak areas in CPR development.


The only one-stop, everything-you-need-to-know 9-1-1 for deep, multifaceted Character, Plot, and Relationship development!
