MAP OUT YOUR IDEA AND FINISH YOUR STORY IN 7 STAGES How do you tell the story you want to tell and capture your audience's heart? Regardless of genre or format, to tell your story effectively you must fi rst sort through all the ideas you've been toying with-organize them, whip them into shape, and turn them into great writing. The Writer's Compass is here to show you the way. This guide to better writing teaches you to visualize your story's progress by creating a story map that helps you see all the different components of your story, where these components are going, and, perhaps most importantly, what key components are missing. You'll learn to: - develop your ideas into a fi nished story by working through your writing in 7 thoughtful stages - evaluate and improve your work by mapping out your story's progress and structure - assess your story's strengths and weaknesses so you can write the story you want to tell Whether you're writing a novel, a short story, a play, or a screenplay, the 7 stage approach of The Writers Compass allows you to focus on one aspect of your story at a time-including forming and developing ideas, building strong structures, creating vibrant characters, and structuring scenes and transitions. The path of a writer isn't always easy. Let The Writer's Compass be your north star by simplifying a wealth of writing advice into easily applicable concepts that will help you improve your craft.
