Book Summary:

This exquisite, resonant novel by PEN/Faulkner winner James Salter is a brilliant portrait of a marriage by a contemporary American master. It is the story of Nedra and Viri, whose favored life is centered around dinners, ingenious games with their children, enviable friends, and near-perfect days passed skating on a frozen river or sunning on the beach. But even as he lingers over the surface of their marriage, Salter lets us see the fine cracks that are spreading through it, flaws that will eventually mar the lovely picture beyond repair. Seductive, witty, and elegantly nuanced, Light Years is a classic novel of an entire generation that discovered the limits of its own happiness—and then felt compelled to destroy it.

Book Summary:

The acclaimed bestseller about visual problem solving-now bigger and better "There is no more powerful way to prove that we know something well than to draw a simple picture of it. And there is no more powerful way to see hidden solutions than to pick up a pen and draw out the pieces of our problem." So writes Dan Roam in The Back of the Napkin, the international bestseller that proves that a simple drawing on a humble napkin can be more powerful than the slickest PowerPoint presentation. Drawing on twenty years of experience and the latest discoveries in vision science, Roam teaches readers how to clarify any problem or sell any idea using a simple set of tools. He reveals that everyone is born with a talent for visual thinking, even those who swear they can't draw. And he shows how thinking with pictures can help you discover and develop new ideas, solve problems in unexpected ways, and dramatically improve your ability to share your insights. Take Herb Kelleher and Rollin King, who figured out how to beat the traditional hub-and-spoke airlines with a bar napkin and a pen. Three dots to represent Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. Three arrows to show direct flights. Problem solved, and the picture made it easy to sell Southwest Airlines to investors and customers. Now with more color, bigger pictures, and additional content, this new edition does an even better job of helping you literally see the world in a new way. Join the teachers, project managers, doctors, engineers, assembly-line workers, pilots, football coaches, marine drill instructors, financial analysts, students, parents, and lawyers who have discovered the power of solving problems with pictures.

Book Summary:

Go from Idea to Outline-And Finish Your Draft Without Freaking Out When writing''s going well, it can be immensely satisfying, not to mention lucrative. But, all too often, this isn''t the case. In the beginning, sure. Enthralled by your story idea, you write tons of material. Your word count grows in leaps and bounds. But the deeper you get into your screenplay or novel, the more difficult writing it becomes. The words no longer flow freely; they trickle out. Panicked, you stare at your computer screen, wondering, What happens next? You have no idea. You''ve run out of steam. You''re stuck. You end up with a half-finished draft. Thousands of words that go nowhere. After a few cycles of this, you may question whether you''re even cut out for this writing gig, after all. Don''t lose faith! The problem isn''t with you. It''s with your method. Here''s one solution: outline your screenplay or novel before writing it. With such an outline in hand, you won''t get stranded. You''ll know where your story is headed; you won''t have to decide where to take it. You can navigate blank pages without panicking. With this writing skills guide, you''ll learn how to quickly produce such an outline. A 3-part process, it looks like this: Make Sure Your Story Idea Isn''t a Time-Sink When you get a seemingly great story idea, you probably like to "run with it." Here''s the thing: not all ideas are worth the time it takes to outline them, let alone write a first draft based on them. No matter whether you''re a "plotter" or a "pantser," you should develop your story idea first, so it has the 6 components all compelling stories share. This way, you can maximize its potential, making sure it has enough substance to sustain a full-length film or novel-and enough appeal to attract an audience to read (or watch) it. Build Your Story Structure Even a great idea can collapse if it doesn''t have solid structure to support it. Basically, when well executed, story structure ensures your screenplay or novel becomes progressively more interesting as it goes along. In addition, because you''ve figured out structural signposts in advance, you won''t be traversing "in the dark," for very long. You''ll always have a bearing to head toward, a destination just around the corner. Hence, you''re unlikely to become so discouraged that you abandon your project altogether. But if you want to boost your confidence and enhance your efficiency, then you''ll want to- Outline Your Story with a Method Backed by Scientific Research (Sort Of) Here, you''ll learn about a radical new outlining method that will help you plot out your entire story in as little as 2 hours. It incorporates a simple technique Stanford researchers have concluded can make you 60% more creative (on average). A Sampling of What You Will Accomplish with This Step-By-Step Writing Guide your protagonist''s goal will have the attributes necessary to prevent audience attention from drifting away you''ll make your story idea more ironic, and hence, more commercial using a simple template, you''ll produce a one-sentence summary of your story (which will help you write and market it) you''ll figure out your first-act break and inciting incident in 10 minutes (probably less) you''ll crack the middle of your story (including the midpoint and the end of Act Two), so that writing it will be less of a stress-fest you''ll take measures to prevent your screenplay or novel from wimping out during the climax you will have a list of all the plot points in your story, ultimately enabling you to write a better story, faster (no fancy software required) Buy this writing guide today, learn how to outline your story effectively, and say good-bye to panic!

Book Summary:

"The journey from the head to the hand is perilous and lined with bodies. It is the road on which nearly everyone who wants to write-and many of the people who do write-get lost."So writes Ann Patchett in "The Getaway Car", a wry, wisdom-packed memoir of her life as a writer. Here, for the first time, one of America's most celebrated authors ("State of Wonder", "Bel Canto", "Truth and Beauty"), talks at length about her literary career-the highs and the lows-and shares advice on the craft and art of writing. In this fascinating look at the development of a novelist, we meet Patchett's mentors (Allan Gurganas, Grace Paley, Russell Banks), see where she made wrong turns (poetry), and learn how she gets the pages written (an unromantic process of pure hard work). Woven through engaging anecdotes from Patchett's life are lessons about writing that offer an inside peek into the storytelling process and provide a blueprint for anyone wanting to give writing a serious try. The bestselling author gives pointers on everything from finding ideas to constructing a plot to combating writer's block. More than that, she conveys the joys and rewards of a life spent reading and writing. "What I like about the job of being a novelist, and at the same time what I find so exhausting about it, is that it's the closest thing to being God that you're ever going to get," she writes. "All of the decisions are yours. You decide when the sun comes up. You decide who gets to fall in love..."In this Byliner Original by the new digital publisher Byliner, "The Getaway Car" is a delightful autobiography-cum-user's guide that appeals to both inspiring writers and anyone who loves a great story.

Book Summary:

An Adult Coloring Book for Authors!This book will help you paint powerful visual scenes that stick with readers long after they're finished your book. The techniques described within are simple and easy to use. Think of this as a guided coloring book adventure. YOUR adventure.There are lots of systems and guides to plotting, but if you're like me you have journals filled with notes, scenes and description... it can get overwhelming. I've based this book on traditional three-act story architecture, but it's greatly simplified. Plotters and pantsers can use the guided exercises to gain greater visual clarity and build more meaningful scenes with resonance. This book will help you get organized and unlock hidden potential in your scenes that you didn't know was there, by going beyond words and focusing on drawing and coloring your scenes until you have a full outline.This book makes an excellent workbook for writing retreats, is simple enough for children to use (it's never too early to write your first novel), and introduces a new, and hopefully useful, way to organize your novel, improve your writing, and create unforgettable scenes that will make a deep and lasting impact.
