"This is commentary on fiction like we’ve never seen it before." ~ Amazon reviewer
“An epic tome of the grandest proportions masquerading as a handbook.”
“A mind-bending whiplash of a journey into the heart of how and why a writer can write memorable stories.”
Story Structure Expedition heads up the Congo River to answer the question: Does the story heart exist? And if so, where is it? How do we get there? And is it true that you have to die to reach the heart? Is a writer obliged to drive her protagonist that far? Could the story heart be the source of our fiction addiction? Is that why we write?
Bi-products of the river journey include rare lessons in how to write fiction, be it a novel, screenplay, genre fiction, or, heaven forbid, you’re into melodrama publishing. One lesson above all keeps the writer writing true—the heart is a lonely hunter.
