Cohesive Story Building (formerly titled FROM FIRST DRAFT TO FINISHED NOVEL {A Writer's Guide to Cohesive Story Building}) by Karen Wiesner (Non-Fiction: Writing Advice)
(9 reviews)  
By bestselling Writer's Digest Books author Karen S. Wiesner

Revised, Updated, and Reissued Writing Reference

Second Edition
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 novel writing process from start to finish.

Cohesive Story Building Worksheets by Karen Wiesner (Writing Advice)
(1 reviews)  
Bonus! Worksheets, Checklists, and Exercises

One of the questions I was asked most when the first edition of this book was published by Writer's Digest Books was whether the worksheets, checklists, and exercises were available in a usable format. With this second edition, my new publisher and I are offering a download of all of these that are in a usable format, namely Rich Text Format (RTF), which allows for cross-platform document exchange and which most word processors are able to read or write to. In other words, the file allows you to type right into the document and use it over and over as needed! Additionally, for those who prefer a printed version, a paperback booklet is also available.
