5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the best books on how to design a novel I've ever read 28 février 2013
Par B. Johnston - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I took David's "Million Dollar Outlines" workshop (this book contains the material he teaches) and it was a huge eye-opener. David isn't just teaching how to outline the story you've already come up with--he's explaining how you design a world, characters, and a story for maximum emotional impact on your target audience. He shows you how to use the various emotional draws to appeal to your target reader, how to create a plot with depth by staggering try-fail cycles, how to create a fascinating setting that sucks readers in, and so much more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 That One-Percent Difference 12 février 2013
Par Sam Reeves - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I opened this book expecting to find something like, "Now that you have read the first chapter, here are some fun exercises for you to try." Didn't find that. This book is geared to change your perspective on writing. I can't help but think that these are the things professional, bestselling authors do, the things that talent compels them to do unconsciously and results in something better than they can explain.

This book describes the kind of techniques you can use to create a work of mass appeal. After reading it, I saw many factors that were missing from my own unpublished novel, and several more I am incorporating into the book I'm writing now. Well worth the money, and information any aspiring writer will consider priceless.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Perhaps a silly title, but Farland's system will improve your story. 18 mars 2013
Par Eric Christensen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I know, I know. The title seems a little silly. But when you learn that David Farland taught the likes of Brandon Sanderson and Stephenie Meyer, and that Farland pushed Scholastic to bid on the Harry Potter series, you realize why Farland called his book MILLION DOLLAR OUTLINES. His goal is to teach writers how to fully develop their stories, such that it will find success with the widest audience possible.

While this idea might bother the "art for art's sake" crowd, I didn't really have a problem with it. To me, a big part of being a writer is finding an audience. I want my stuff to be read; I want my stories to sell; I don't want to shout into the void. And I don't think that it's any coincidence that the books that I (and millions of others) love are the ones that are the most richly detailed, that have the most well defined worlds, that have the most interesting characters, and that have the most elegant plots. So yes, Farland's approach to outlining is very aware of marketing. But I also think it's one of the more specific books on story pre-planning out there.

In fact, the bulk of MILLION DOLLAR OUTLINES is about answering questions before you write a single word of your outline. Farland advises writers to first answer questions about their fictional world, their characters, backstories, conflicts, character arcs, a target audience, the emotions they want to arouse, reversals, twists, themes, and more. Only with that information on hand, Farland says, can you properly begin to structure your story. Only then does Farland show readers how to build an outline based on a series of plot charts or plot diagrams.

In my opinion, this was the one weakness of MILLION DOLLAR OUTLINES. Although the logic behind these diagrams is sound, Farland assumes his readers know how to create them. I don't. I can create try-fail cycles of increasing scope and intensity, but I don't know how to graph it onto a chart. That being said, I think if I went through all of the exercises Farland offers, this is a minor concern. I could probably put the pieces together into an outline despite the lack of diagrams. But I think I'd still miss having that final visual checkpoint before I start writing.

There is a moment at the very end of MILLION DOLLAR OUTLINES when David Farland says something along the lines of beginner writers are sometimes too eager to start writing, and they begin writing before doing adequate planning. The result is a thin book that doesn't live up to its potential. I found myself nodding. My first novel-perhaps never to rise from the trunk-suffered from just such a problem. It felt thin and disappointing, as if the colors were pale, washed out. I won't make the same mistake on my next novel, thanks to Farland and MILLION DOLLAR OUTLINES.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't let the title fool you 7 mars 2013
Par Denise McGee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is so much more than a book about outlining. It covers the psychology of your characters, emotional beats, settings, viewpoints, conflicts and a host of other elements. It then takes all those elements and teaches you how to tie them all together in one neat outline shaped bow in a rather unique way. I can't recommend this book enough.
