Memoir

THE BEST STORIES ALWAYS COME FROM ADVENTURE. Witness a side of the City of Light you’ve never seen before as Bunting learns, at last, that the best stories always come from adventure.
The Write Structure

The Write Structure by Joe Bunting

How-to/Reference

The Hidden Principles Behind Best-selling, Award-Winning Stories Great books don’t happen by accident, but by writers who understand, consciously or unconsciously, principles hidden within the best stories. These common-sense principles are easy to learn, but they drive the success (or failure) of best-selling, award winning novels and films. Now, with The Write Structure, writers can learn these principles and quickly apply them to their own writing projects. Using simple, universal terminology and easy-to-grasp visualizations, The Write Structure uncovers the hidden truths of the best stories, allowing new and advanced writers to better understand their own stories and make them better. If you want to write a bestselling book or a screenplay ready to become a major feature, purchase a copy of The Write Structure and turn your story ideas into finished, published works.

I was super impressed with so much that Joe could intuit regarding my story from the materials I submitted – his insight and guidance is invaluable. He combines depth with simplicity, not over-complicating the matters at hand. There's such an art to combining the creative/intuitive/generative aspects of drafting and the editorial/analytical aspects of writing/revising. I easily get lost on either end – too much unstructured pantsing and then too much over-analytical plotting. Joe's insight and warm encouragement are setting me up for success, and I am confident that I will write a solid working draft with the book plan we collaborated on.

Joe's lateral approach to my book plan really had me thinking about the direction of my novel and development of storyline and characters – a great insight.
