I have found this incredibly useful I've been writing novels for several years and in fact have already found some success as a self published author Still I like to keep learning A friend recommended this book and I'm so glad she did Reading it and putting the theory into practice has enabled me to learn how to do some things on purpose that I'd wandered into before It allowed me to further develop the outlining system I was already using and add depth to areas where I was occasionally winging itMy one complaint about the book was that I felt too much of the text was spent trying to convince me why the system is useful perhaps up to 23 of the book Perhaps the author has gotten criticism in the past for daring to tell pantsers there's a better way and he was preemptively cutting off those arguments Therefore I found myself skimming and wading through stuff thinking Stop trying to sell me on the system and just give me the nuts and boltsStill the help I received by mining the pages meant I couldn't give this helpful guide less than five stars I've used this system to build my next novel and I am much happier and confident than I ever have been at this stage Just be sure you're prepared to do a bit of digging to get to the nuggets out of Story Engineering It's totally worth it when you do

Instead of feeling inspired to write I found myself feeling rather peckish because Larry sure does love his cooking analogies comparing writing to making Eggs Benedict amongst many other tasty recipesThe only thing of value I took from this book was his chapter on character It explained three dimensional characters in a way that made so much sense More enlightening and practical than anything I've ever read in entire books devoted to the subject It's only a very small part of the book thoughSadly the rest of the book is mostly waffle I would have liked to have seen him apply his core competencies to examples of a literary nature rather than the ones he chooses Da Vinci Code and the movie Top Gun And I say that as someone who is an avid thriller and sci fi readerWhat I've finally discovered having read the book is that outlining really isn't for me It kills the fun enjoyment and discovery of writing Larry's tone of voice probably has something to with it as well He comes across as a bit smug If you like to just sit down and write I recommend Story Trumps Structure and Troubleshooting Your Novel both by Steve James
