Plotting and scheming

Ufff I'm really tired today, folks.


And I'm right at the beginning of quite an intense opera schedule for the next four weeks, so I'll have to get some stardust from somewhere!

But it's not so bad - there is some time to sketch and read during the shows, so I always pack a sketchbook and my Kindle.

A writer friend of mine recently recommended a book for working on story structure called 'Story Engineering' by Larry Brookes.

However, I managed to download the wrong book.

Instead, I got 'The Anatomy of Story' by John Truby. I'm wondering if this could turn out to be a happy accident though, because so far, so brilliant. So if any of you are writers who are struggling with plots, this is one I would recommend you check out.
