Struggling to start your novel? Stuck in the middle? Finished a first draft, but it doesn't really grab you?
This short, easy-to-follow book helps you speed through your first draft, minimize major rewrites, and keep readers turning the pages.
Using specific questions and prompts to expand and focus your story idea, plus examples from plots as diverse as The Terminator, The Awakening, and Gone with the Wind, best-selling author L. M. Lilly talks you through the five simple steps she's used to write every novel she's published.
Keep your pen, keyboard, or phone at your side as you listen, and you'll learn to create:
- Strong conflict
- Characters the reader cares about
- Five basic plot points
- Compelling subplots
Most important, Super Simple Story Structure talks you through what should happen in the middle of the novel - that spot that many writers approach with dread.
What you'll create won't be so structured that you'll feel hemmed in and stifled, but it will be enough that you can write your first draft quickly, without getting stuck staring at a blank screen for an hour, then giving up and checking your social media accounts.

Excellent refresher or fresh start
As a film major, I can’t say I learned too many new things but it is all great advice and good to hear before starting a project. This book is short and to the point but easy to listen and follow. The advice is on point and the narrator did a very nice job as well.
