Story Genius by Lisa Cron
"Making sense of nonsense

This is the first craft book to tap into what I thought was chiseled in stone in my brain. I'm a pantser. Or should I say, was.

I'll be using Lisa Cron's formula for my next book, and thanking a writer friend for guilting m..." Read more of this review »

"This book is genius!!!! It may be the book that's had the biggest positive influence on my writing--the most organically influential book on craft I've ever read. Now that I've digested it, I will never create a story the same way again. And I'm s..." Read more of this review »

"Humans are Wired for Story

Humans are "wired for story,” but writers often miss the boat: "Writers often don't even know what a story is: So, even though they have a great idea, their prose is gorgeous, and there’s a lot of action, there’s no real..." Read more of this review »
Story Genius by Lisa Cron
"When you buy this book, also buy a new package of mini-sticky notes to flag things as well as a brand-new highlighter—you’ll need it.

I’ve been writing and editing fiction professionally for fourteen years, and I wish I had this book fourteen years..." Read more of this review »

I'll have to re read this because I tore through it the first time. I had to find out if Elise gets through it and how but I kept getting hit by new and fascinating stuff.
I don't know how to describe it so I'll just say what I know for sure: it's gr

“As Aunty Lee always said, you can’t cut out bad memories without removing part of your heart, but you can always create good memories to override them.”
Ovidia Yu, Aunty Lee's Delights

“As far as Aunty Lee was concerned, people ought to go through the ideas they carried around in their heads as regularly as they turned out their store cupboards. No matter how wisely you shopped, there would be things in the depths that were past their expiration dates or gone damp and moldy---or that has been picked up on impulse and were no longer relevant. Aunty Lee believed everything inside a head or cupboard could affect everything else in it by going bad or just taking up more space than it was worth.”
Ovidia Yu, Aunty Lee's Delights

“I had seen enough of Western courtship rituals to know European families did little to identify, research and arrange suitable marriages. Instead, to catch the attention of potential partners, Western males had to resort to shows of strength, aggression and virility, rather like wild boars in the mating season, and Western females had to decorate themselves and their homes, like bower birds.”
Ovidia Yu, The Frangipani Tree Mystery
