As a literary agent, Noah Lukeman hears thousands of book pitches a year. Often the stories sound great in concept, but never live up to their potential on the page. Lukeman shows beginning and advanced writers how to implement the fundamentals of successful plot development, such as character building and heightened suspense and conflict. Writers will find it impossible to walk away from this invaluable guide---a veritable fiction-writing workshop---without boundless new ideas. "One of the best-ever books about the craft of writing. It is a book that can change the world of every writer who embraces Lukeman's ideas. His classroom on paper should be on every writer's shelf to be read again and again." --Authorlink… (mais)

Excellent resource for fiction writers. Writing prompts, character development thoughts, etc. Well worth having a paper copy on your bookshelf to help you prep or to unstick you.

I borrwed my copy from the library but will be buying a physical copy for my bookshelf soon. ( )

In this book, Lukeman's main premise is that writers whose plots are too thin (or non-existent) will find a solution in deeper characterization and, so, this book is mostly about characterization. Unlike "A Dash of style" and "The First Five Pages", "The Plot Thickens" feels very much like a book aimed at beginners - perhaps because very little of it will be new to anyone who has read other books on story craft but also because of its tone (which is subjective, I know). Nevertheless, anyone who struggles to create plot from initial ideas, or struggles to find ideas at all, will find it a wealth of inspiration. I'd also recommend this book to those scribes who believe that literary-means-not-having-to-plot, though I fear they would need to be strapped down and forced to read it (less so, though, than "The First Five Pages: A Writers' Guide to Staying Out of the Rejection Pile" the very title of which, unfortunately, is likely to make those who need it most run in the opposite direction.)

Note that the first 80 pages are devoted to characterization exercises.

With an unusual approach to plotting, Lukeman uses a holistic, rather than a didactic, method. There is plenty of instruction and practical examples, as well as exercises, in the book, so it is a "teaching" book, but what Lukeman achieves is more than just teaching a reader "how to plot."

Although this book is mainly about plot, it's doesn't take a step-by-step approach to plotting. Rather, one gains a sense of how the elements of a novel are all connected and multi-layered. Characterisation drives plot; but plot deepens character.

Each chapter does deal with a specific element to strengthen plot, but ultimately what Lukeman conveys is that to achieve a work that goes beyond the norm - to write a transcendent book - one needs to understand that writing a novel is more than just technique.

The final chapter "Transcendency" reflects on what differentiates a great book from a good book and is a salutary lesson writing, not from the intellect, but from the soul. Lukeman says:"... it will entail putting yourself on the line ... passion is magnetic. Writing from a place of truth and love, you can never go wrong ...[there is] a difference between a writer who writes because he wants to and one who writes because he has to... the transcendent work is the work you know is the best you can offer."

As inspiring as Lukeman's [The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide To Staying Out of the Rejection Pile] ( )

People are always asking me if the university stifles writers. I reply that it hasn't stifled enough of them. There's many a bestseller that could have been prevented by a good writing teacher. 
--Flannery O'Connor

At the risk of repeating myself, I dedicate this, my second book, to my mother. I never planned to write another book on writing, and set down some thoughts on plot for her sake alone. Her encouragement brought forth a chapter, and before I knew it, it was too late to turn back.

Introduction-
The word "plot" can cause a great deal of trepidation in writers. This is chiefly because plot has become synonymous with having a "great idea," and the pressure to come up with such an idea can be stultifying.
Begin with an individual and you find that you have created a type; begin with a type and you find that you have created--nothing.
--F. Scott Fitzgerald

You may have been in a situation--perhaps in a government office--where you've been asked for your mother's social security number, your father's place of birth, and realized, in a horrific flash, that you don't really know the people you think you know best in the world.
