A Story is a Promise The Spirit of Storytelling

Authored by Bill Johnson

This is the writing workbook that will help new or struggling writers to understand both the art and craft of storytelling.

This book has three sections. A Story is a Promise explores the mechanics of telling a story. Deep Characterization explores what happens when an author makes characters an extention of the author's issues. The Spirit of Storytelling suggests techniques for authors to create characters with fully realized inner lives; characters who are vibrant, dynamic, and resonate with readers.

The book includes a link to an outline of The Lovely Bones and a diagram for developing the dramatic truths of characters, and new reviews of popular movies, including Inception, and detailed reviews of Romeo and Juliet (the play), The Heidi Chronicles (play), The Shawshank Redemption and The Usual Suspects (movies), and The Lovely Bones (novels).

These reviews are meant to help writers understand the underlying process that creates popular stories.
