Plot Gardening by Chris Fox



I am on a bit of a roll this past weekend. I managed to get through a couple of things in my backlog stack of many things.  I picked this up and it was a quick, easy read.  I'm old fashioned, surprisingly, as I still love the feel of paper and a bookshelf I can go do when the power's out, so I have this in paperback.  I also put a lot of Post-it Flags on various pages of interest. 

This book talks about a topic and then shows how it is done in a handful of movies that you have probably seen.  There are also handy little exercises at the end of each chapter that I think would genuinely help.  I've held the book off to the side so that I can give this a whirl on two of my writing projects. 

If you are a "seat of your pantser" writer, this approach might help with outlining.  I'm going to give it a try.  It's worth a read.
