Présentation de l'éditeur

  • Find ways to add emotion to the page via showing not telling.
  • See how to reveal your characters back story without stopping the forward momentum of your story.
  • Learn how to deepen conflict on every page.
  • Notice how changing your setting can reveal so much to the reader.

This book helped me identify areas where I really need to focus (Setting and emotion) and clarified how I can make my Setting work for me in the story and the world I've created. ~~ Wendy G - Memphis, Tennessee

Learning how to write ACTIVE SETTINGS has been amazing. The examples are concise and fit seamlessly into the narrative. This book has been both challenging and informative. ~~ Laurel Wilczek, SciFi and Fantasy writer

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Have For Writers 13 mars 2013
Par J. Coy - Publié sur

If you're a writer and serious about your craft then you want to write description that goes beyond the laundry list. You want description that is active and reveals things about your character. This book will help you write like that. I'm not a new writer. I know better than to provide a laundry list of items in a setting. I have eight years of hard work and dedicated learning behind me and yet this book taught me to write better description. This book is for ANY writer who wants to improve their craft. I would give this work more stars if it were possible. This is a must have for any serious writer who needs to improve their descriptions.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 How to add depth, the easy way 16 mars 2013
Par P. Palmer - Publié sur

As anyone who’s had to analyze Wuthering Heights at school knows, a writer can use a character’s environment to reflect that character’s moods (think Heathcliff’s temper and stormy moors). Provided the writer is a rare talent like one of the Bronte sisters, of course.

Now you can grow your own inner Bronte.

Mary Buckham’s 'Emotion, Conflict, and Back Story' is an incredibly effective tool for writers at all levels.. Supported by practical examples, you learn how to create and deepen moods, add conflict and get your back story across without sending your readers to sleep. I’m a huge fan of the first book 'Characterization and Sensory Detail,' and once again I was amazed at just how much depth an appropriate setting can achieve. Like a child with a new toy I had to try out the tips right away. I booted up my laptop, rewrote a few paragraphs, and – snap – my entire chapter was transformed. I’m not exaggerating. The mood I established in those two paragraphs gave a whole new depth to the rest of the scene. It’s like everything just fell into place.

I keep both 'Setting' books near my desk, and dip into them whenever a scene isn’t doing what I want it to do. My shelves groan under the weight of books about plotting, but it’s rare to find books about the craft of writing. It’s almost impossible to find good ones. This is a gem of a book, and no serious writer can afford not to read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Want a breakthrough in your writing? 14 mars 2013
Par Elizabeth W. Gibson - Publié sur

Let's be honest here, as a reader have you skipped over descriptions of settings because the passages seemed like they belong to another story or they were simply boring. But, most of all they took you out of the story. Those reasons could spell disaster for a writer and their story.

Are you writing settings merely to place your characters for your readers? I admit I have. But, I found a remedy with Mary Buckham's Active Settings Book 1 and 2. Mary is spot on with her techniques and guides you with examples from recent popular authors. She makes you see the difference of a mediocre description of setting to one that's holy moley is that how it's done.

Here is the table of contents for Book 2:
1. Using setting to show emotion
2. Using setting to create complication
3. Using setting to show backstory.

With the techniques in this book and the first, I know how to make settings do double and triple duty.

If you take a class with Mary you're never going to be the same as when you started. We're talking about breakthroughs, here. She pushes you to be your best. But, if you can't take her class get the book. I can't get enough of her teaching so I got both.

I highly recommend this book.

Would you like to learn how to write description that readers won't skip? Then you need Mary Buckham's Writing Active Setting. Book two demonstrates how to write setting that shows emotion and involves the reader in the character's emotions. Also, setting that shows conflict and setting that reveals backstory. Mary supplies all the examples you need to understand the concepts she is teaching. She's a master teacher and gives workshops in person and online. I've had the privilege to work with Mary in both types of classes and I've learned many techniques from her. Writing Active Setting is the most valuable technique I've learned. This is book two. I also have book one and I'm anxiously awaiting book three in the fall.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book for Writers 14 mars 2013
Par Deborah Anderson - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
Do you struggle when it comes to writing setting in your novels? If you do, this book will definitely help you out.

Over the years, others have preached to me about writing setting. You know, that I shouldn't write too much of it because I'd lose the reader. As a result, I swung too far in the opposite direction. My poor prose came off looking pooh pooh and anorexic. After applying Ms. Buckham's techniques, though, I found a balance in adding depth and layers to my stories.

What I liked best about this book? Ms. Buckham doesn't just tell other writers how to do this. She provides tools to help them accomplish this in crafting their stories.

I highly recommend this book.
