Title Image for The Writer’s Bookshelf Episode 45

Whenever we sit down to read a book, we take it for granted that the author will confidently display his storytelling skills. But whenever we sit down to write a book, all that confidence flies out the window because we know the truth: What storytelling skills?

Welcome back to The Writer’s Bookshelf. In this week’s episode, we take a look at The Secrets of Story by Matt Bird, a book written for screenwriters, but adopted by all writers. In this book, we learn not just the fundamentals of story structure, because we can learn that from anyone, as The Writer’s Bookshelf series has proven, but the little tweaks that can turn a mediocre story into a hot one.

And we all want to write the hot one, don’t we? We certainly want to read it. This book helps us to write the book that the reader wants to read.
