|| A Story is a Promise offers a fresh new
model for mastering the elusive art of writing dramatic and engaging
stories. In order to illustrate its major principles, the book includes
reviews and analyses of over a dozen popular films, novels, and plays.
Complete with prompts and questions at the end of each chapter, A Story is a
Promise can be used as a workbook to help writers internalize the principle
that underlies all well-told stories: that a story should be a promise and
that a promise should be kept. The inclusion of familiar examples makes this
book accessible and useful to all writers of fiction, plays, and
Bill Johnson has been using the manuscript of A Story is a
Promise in his workshops for years. Many editors also use the workbook to teach
blossoming writers the craft of storytelling.
In his widely read guides How to Write a Damn Good
Novel and How to Write a Damn Good Novel II: Advanced Techniques,
popular novelist and fiction-writing coach James N. Frey showed tens of
thousands of writers how--starting with rounded, living, breathing, dynamic
characters--to structure a novel that sustains its tension and development
and ends in a satisfying, dramatic climax.
The Key, Frey takes his
no-nonsense, "Damn Good" approach and applies it to Joseph Campbell's
insights into the universal structure of myths. Myths, says Frey, are the
basis of all storytelling, and their structures and motifs are just as
powerful for contemporary writers as they were for Homer. Frey begins with
the qualities found in mythic heros--ancient and modern--such as the hero's
special talent, his or her wound, status as an "outlaw," and so on. He then
demonstrates how the hero is initiated--sent on a mission, forced to learn
the new rules, tested, and suffers a symbolic death and rebirth--before he
or she can return home. Using dozens of classical and contemporary novels
and films as models, Frey shows how these motifs and forms work their
powerful magic on the reader's imagination.
The Key is designed as a practical step-by-step guide for fiction
writers and screen writers who want to shape their own ideas into a mythic
