Finding the Core of Your Story by Jordan Smith

The Indie Book of the Day for 16th of July, 2013!

Genre: Non Fiction, Writing

What’s your story about?

It’s the most frightening question in the world if all you have is a blank stare. But what if you had an attention-grabbing answer that left your audience wanting more? It’s not only possible, it’s simple if you have the right tools.

Story consultant and author Jordan Smith has helped countless storytellers strengthen and pitch their stories. His tool of choice is the logline, a technique for selling screenplays that is little known outside of Hollywood. Jordan has adapted this powerful tool and made it accessible to all storytellers.

Not only is a logline useful for answering that frightening question, it’s also handy for keeping your story on track. If you don’t know the core of your story, you run the risk of meandering it into places where it doesn’t belong. With these techniques, you can solve story problems early before they cause you trouble.

Inside this book, you’ll find:

- The Quick-Start Logline Chapter to get you going right away - Exercises to build your logline skills one step at a time - The four fundamental logline rules - Useful chapters to dig deeper and handle special cases - More examples than you can shake a stick at - And more!

Whether you write novels, movies, comic books, songs, or even operas, this book is for you. Every storyteller should be able to say in one sentence what his story is about. Finding the Core of Your Story will help you learn to do just that.

Read Sample

Jordan Smith is a storyteller who generally works in the realm of film, though he branches out into other forms of fiction frequently. He’s always picking stories apart to see what makes them tick. He is the author of Finding the Core of Your Story and A Purple and Gold Afghan and other stories, and the producer/director of the Month of the Novel web series.

When he’s not telling stories, Jordan can be found relaxing with a good book, watching hockey, talking to himself in a most alarming array of voices, or attempting to paralyze his tongue with hot sauce.
