Addendum to Newsletter

The April edition of my newsletter, “Writers on the Brink,” went out yesterday.  It had a special free offer in it… you know the one.

Turns out E-Junkie only allows 100 “free” downloads per day.  That was quickly exceeded.  Another 100 become available each day… so hang in there, keep trying.

Hey, it’s news to me, too.  Thanks for your patience.

If you aren’t on that list, use the sign-up (that’s free, too) to the right of this post.

    Dear Larry, I just read the newsletter and I wanted to comment on the story analysis and coaching service. I’ll put my comment here because I cannot for the life of me figure out how to comment on the newsletter. Any ideas? Anyway, I think the service sounds great! I would love to have you help me with my ideas, beat sheets, etc., but the original price for you to go through the whole manuscript was definitely out of my price range. $60 to start, and even the $100 later on is much more managable for me. I’m hoping to “manage” it before May so I can take advantage of the reduced rate. I’m very excited! You’ve done so much to help my writing already and I’m sure having your personal touch will only make it that much better. Thank you for offering this service.

    Mr. Brooks- I’m sure you’ll go over this in the Hunger Games deconstruction series- but I went back and read the scene on page 72, and what is it that makes that the First Plot Point? I’m trying to get the hang of your structure outline…I would have guessed something earlier. Looking forward to what you have to say about it.

    Larry, thank you for the free download. E-Junkie let me mine it yesterday. I devoured the download in one sitting, bookmarking those pages where I found nuggets of gold that resonated with what I am trying to do in my novel. To paraphrase a line from a movie: “Thar’s gold in them there pages.” Again, as in your blog, your generosity with us aspiring writers amazes me.

    A note to those out there who are reading the download now: If you find yourselves “trying to wrap your head around” story architecture, all I can say is buy Larry’s book, Story Engineering. It will take right into the gold mine, straight to that biggest seam of golden information about writing a story that you have ever seen. In Larry’s words: “This is huge. This is killer.” It will be the best investment you will ever make in your writing career. You will earn dividends in insights about all the elements that make great stories work; insights that have the potential to make your story great too.

    If you have a completed manuscript, Story Engineering will show where the nuggets are in your story and where the fool’s gold is, so that when you come out of the mine you’ll know that you are headed to the refinery with the potential to turn your manuscript into a brick of gold.

    If you have staked a claim to a story idea, Story Engineering will give you the tools that will tell whether or not it’s worth to start digging. And, if it is worth to start digging, Story Engineering will give you the tools to build your mine shaft that will take your straight to all the nuggets to fill your story sack full of gold.

    Nobody ever said digging for gold is easy. Some dig in the dark. Some dig with the Story Engineer’s Headlamp on. It beats panning for gold, or as Larry would say, “pantsing” for gold.

  4. hmmm….I didn’t get that newsletter? I thought I had subscribed – and have re-applied…where can I find it?

    I signed up for the newsletter a bit late. Is it possible to get a copy of the April newsletter now? I’d like to get the download…. 🙂

    Larry, how can I get the newsletter? Is it too late to receive the April issue? I thought I had signed up for it but perhaps not.

    Dear Larry,
    Bought “Story Engineering”…Excellent…love it! I subscribe to both Story Fix and your newsletter. They’re great. I’m a new writer on the brink. Have had 2 of my short stories published & am starting to “engineer” a novel. One of the tips in your 100 Free Tips for writers recommends studying screen writing books.Can you recommend a good one, please? Thanks.
    Regards, Rita

  8. I really like and appreciate your blog.Thanks Again. Cool.

  9. I wanted to create you a little observation just to give many thanks as before about the amazing guidelines you’ve documented in this article. This is so strangely generous with you to give unhampered just what many individuals would have distributed for an e book to generate some dough for themselves, even more so considering that you could have done it if you considered necessary. The pointers additionally acted to become a fantastic way to recognize that most people have the identical interest similar to my personal own to understand a lot more regarding this matter. I believe there are many more enjoyable opportunities up front for individuals that check out your website.
