Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Learn the secret of how to write the heart of your story! This writing skills book, full of fiction writing technique, is like no other.

Some novelists write with the goal of becoming a best seller, hoping for wealth and fame. Some just want to write novels that earn them a steady income so they can feed their families and pay their bills. Some write to express their creativity and don’t care if anyone ever reads their books.

Then there are the other writers. They want to write an unforgettable novel—the kind of book that gets called a classic, that endures the ravages of time, that stays long in readers’ hearts and changes their lives.

These writers want to know the secret of how to reach the heart of their readers.

If you are one of those writers, Writing the Heart of Your Story is the book you’ve been waiting for.

Inside, you’ll learn:


  • what the most important key elements are that must be in the very first scene of your novel—and some in the first paragraph.

  • how to tap into the heart of your story, characters, setting, plot, and themes by employing specific writing exercises.

  • ways to brainstorm ideas for plot, themes, motifs, setting, and rich characters through asking a series of questions that will take you deeper below the surface of your story.

  • what the most important question is that must be asked in the opening scene in order to write an unforgettable novel.

  • what three things each character must be asked for them to become truly believable and compelling.

  • the secrets to structuring powerful scenes by focusing on the “high moment.”


Don’t just write a good novel. Write a great one—by mining the heart of your story!

Here's what the best writing instructors and bloggers have to say about this essential writing craft book:

“A fresh and motivating take on conventional wisdom, but with unconventional heart. This is highly accessible teaching that transcends ‘how to’ and goes deep into ‘why to’ in a way that will force you to choose between reading it again and jumping on your own project. Bravo.”
—Larry Brooks, best-selling author of Story Engineering and Story Physics

“As authors, our job is to make people feel, and to do this we need to connect with our own deepest selves in the hope that we can meet the reader where they are. This book will teach you how to delve into your own heart in order to impact those who read your words.”
—Joanna Penn, author of From Idea to Book

“A veritable compendium of sound writing advice and technique. Written in a style that is both accessible and fun, Lakin's book will be a welcome companion on your writing journey.”
—James Scott Bell, best-selling author of Conflict and Suspense and Plot and Structure

“I read dozens of writing craft books every year. All too many of them are ho-hum, been-there-done-that. This one is absotively posolutely not. Lakin offers a refreshingly structured—and yet freeing—approach to not just creating a solidly entertaining story but to crafting a tale of emotional resonance and resilience. Her useful writing exercises and spot-on story sense offer epiphany after epiphany. This is one I will read and reread.”
—K. M. Weiland, author of Outlining Your Novel and Structuring Your Novel

“C. S. Lakin once again shares her generous heart and knowledge and experience with writers in this inspiring and inspired Writing the Heart of Your Story. Ready to take your writing to the next level? Lakin offers practical exercises to help you bring heart to your own stories."
—Martha Alderson, author of The Plot Whisperer series of writing books

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Top of My List for "How To" Books for Writers 8 juillet 2014
Par Florence - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
If you write fiction, there's a high likelihood you'll benefit from reading this book. Lakin does an exemplary job not only talking about, but providing excellent tools for, hooking the reader with the first page of your book, use of back story, developing effective scenes, plot development, creating fully fleshed out characters, use of themes, the importance of setting, and so much more. Her advice is detailed and supported with rationale and reasoning. I think I may have to re-read this one before I start writing every book from now on. The sections that involve doing the work upfront, before you start writing, is worth it alone. I've read numerous books on how to write compelling fiction--this one is now at the top of my list.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent guide - clear, logical, actionable advice! 28 juillet 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've had a load of writing instruction, so I'm not usually up for reading a writing how-to. That said, I was immediately pulled in by Lakin's guide. I'm a confident nonfiction writer, but as a new fiction writer, I made many rookie mistakes: backstory dumps, characters with no clear goal or obstacle. I knew the draft wasn't working, but I couldn't identify the problems until I read Lakin's guide. She presents a clear, understandable template (love the checklists!) for planning and writing a compelling story. Really good stuff, and I'm a tough audience for this kind of thing. (I did skip the parts where she makes a case for her method. The book is actually a quicker read than it looks if you don't need to read the persuasive parts.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Straight From the Heart 25 juillet 2014
Par Ed Markel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is one of the best, if not THE best book I have ever read about writing, and I have read dozens of them. Susanne writes from the heart and in this wonderful book, she teaches the rest of us how to do it. If you are an aspiring writer, you need to have a copy of this book and you need to read it several times, and take notes. You will learn how to create real characters who have real emotion and motivation, but be careful -- in order to do this, you will have to learn to experience these emotions for yourself and then describe them on paper. The Heart of Your Story comes from your heart.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Must read for fiction writers. Both artful and practical. 19 novembre 2014
Par May B.B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Wonderful book on writing craft. I'll admit it starts a little sappy or poetic for my taste, but that is short lived. This book touches on most every aspect of writing fiction: character, plot, scene, theme, beginnings, middles, and ends, and so on, but does it in a way that forces you, the writer, to think to care and be invested in all of the aspects of your project. This is not a rinse, wash, and repeat craft book that will help you churn out cookie cutters. But that isn't what you want, right? I know the pain of writing a book to only have to revise it to death, then realize what my book, character, theme (whatever) focus should have been, rewrite again with some solidified thoughts, and then still need to polish that up. There is a better way; not only a way that is more efficient, but that might also help you produce something that means more to you, something that can speak to others, something with heart. Don't, however, mistake this for a romanticized every-book-should-make-people-cry guide. It isn't. C. S. Lakin shows you how to get the the heart of your story, true, but these are practical processes necessary for creating believe ability throughout your book: creating characters real enough to fall in love with (or hate if that's your goal), places readers can see and feel, and plots that demand you turn the next page and start reading the next chapter. This writing craft book transcends genre: suspense, romance, horror, doesn't matter. Great tool for any writers toolbox.
