5 Secrets to Story Structure: A Review


Structured story plots have been a problem for me in the past, but I never knew what to do about it, so I just kept plugging along. Then I came across this book and will not have that problem any more (as long as I follow the tips I read about).

Clarity: 1/1

K.M. Weiland always does a great job explaining things clearly and concisely. This book is no exception.

Usability: 1/1

I’ve already started using it. I started using the tips the day I started reading it, actually. I had just started outlining a new book and this book helped me outline it in a way that followed the proper story structure. Now I’m even more excited than before to start writing!

Readability: 1/1

K.M. Weiland started out with a summary of each point in the story structure and then had a few chapters that had more detail about each act. This made the book very readable as terms were explained first and then described later.

Overall writing quality: 1/1

The writing quality was great! I didn’t find any typos and each word was obviously chosen with care.

Un-put-down-ability: 1/1

After reading half of the first chapter, I ended up setting the book aside for about a week due to busyness and illness, but when I picked it up again, I couldn’t put it down.

Conclusion: 5/5

Even if you think you know how to structure your story, I think this is a must-read for every writer. It’s short, easy to read, and you might just pick up a tip or two or ten. What’s a little over an hour out of your day if it helps make you a better writer?

You can purchase the book here on Amazon.
