The Monster Novel Structure Workbook: How to Plot Without Getting Stuck
But it doesn’t have to be that way. Most novels follow a pattern, and you can learn that pattern. It’s called novel structure.
Novel structure is often broken down to short, simple pieces: three acts, five turning points, etc. But what about the gaps between turning points? What makes one turning point different from another?
Enter the Monster Novel Structure Workbook, with 21 distinct beats to guide you through your novel. More than just the the inflexible Hero’s Journey, the Monster Workbook takes you through the most popular character arc—a positive one with a (mostly) positive ending—to maximize your book’s emotional satisfaction. With the aid of step-by-step explanations, examples, and analysis, you’ll understand how and why the structure works. And also how it can be broken and still work.
The book is enhanced with downloads, including printable and editable PDFs, and a NaNoWriMo calendar.
