Publisher's Summary

A magical key to unlock your creative wizard
Are you writing a novel, but having trouble getting your first draft written? You've heard of "outlining", but that sounds too rigid for you. You've heard of "organic writing", but that seems a bit squishy to you.
Take a look at the wildly popular Snowflake Method - a battle-tested series of 10 steps that jump-start your creativity and help you quickly map out your story. All around the world, novelists are using the Snowflake Method right now to ignite their imaginations and get their first drafts down on paper.
In this book, you'll follow the story of a fictitious novelist as she learns to tap into the amazing power of the Snowflake Method. Almost magically, she finds her story growing from a simple idea into a deep and powerful novel. And she finds her novel changing her - turning her into a stronger, more courageous person.
Zany, over the top, and just plain fun
How to Write a Novel Using the Snowflake Method is a "business parable" - a how-to guide written in story form. It's zany. It's over the top. It's just plain fun. Most important, it's effective, because it shows you, rather than telling you.
You'll learn by example how to grow your story idea into a sizzling first draft.
You'll discover:


How to define your "target audience" the right way, so you know exactly how your ideal listeners think and feel. Forget what the experts tell you about "demographics."
How to create a dynamite selling tool that will instantly tell people whether they'll love your story or hate it. And you want them to either love it or hate it.
How to get inside the skin of every one of your characters - even your villain. Especially your villain.
How to find a deep, emotively powerful theme for your story. Do you know the one best point in your novel to unveil your theme - when your listener is most eager to hear it?
Why backtracking is good, even essential.

Childish story that outlines the method in detail.

This book was entertaining and also somewhat exhausting to listen while commuting. The message is wrapped around characters of various children's fairytales, which make it a bit weird, but which at the same time enlightens the listener about the method. Recommend it to people to find out more about how Snowflake method can be used in your writing.
