One of the most common questions asked of professional writers is how the author wrote their book, what was their process for storytelling? But really the question should be about the general principles and nature of story–does every part of a story have what it needs to keep readers turning the pages? Does every scene, every part of the story support the strategic narrative objective of providing new information a scene will inject in the story?

Larry Brooks has developed a series of detailed checklists backed by tutorial content for novelists of every level and genre to refer to as they write regardless of which writing method they prefer. Beginning with the broadest part of story, the early checklists help writers to ensure that their book is based on a premise (aka plot) rather than an idea, or how you can elevate your idea into an actual premise where other story elements can be developed.

LARRY BROOKS is the author of six critically-acclaimed thrillers, and the guy behind www.storyfix.com, named by Writers Digest Magazine to their “101 Best Website for Writers” for the past six years. His latest novels are DEADLY FAUX and THE SEVENTH THUNDER, published by Turner Publishing, who has also re-released his four prior novels as trade paperbacks. He is also the author of three bestselling writing books, including his latest, “Story Fix: Transform Your Novel From Broken to Brilliant.”
