Kernan, an Emmy Award-winning author, provides a hands-on approach to planning and writing great plots. Fill-in charts, quizes, timelines, and a complete plot tutorial help readers construct a strong narrative arc, while showing how to unify writing through devices such as subplot, theme, and setting. To inspire new ideas, Kernan profiles nine traditional plot archetypes, and illustrates instructions with popular examples of great plotting from Macbeth to Raiders of the Lost Arc . The author has written for television, film, radio, and print, and works as a producer at Web TV Networks. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
