KM Weiland is a gift. Her books, Structuring Your Novel and Outlining Your Novel have been incredibly helpful tools for me over the past few years. I cannot recommend these books enough! In her latest blog post, she uses some examples from The Last Jedi (which I loved, but which was also kind of a mess) to talk about five crucial secrets of good storytelling. Check out this blog post and definitely consider her books if you’re at all like me and could use a hand creating plots that more powerfully hook your readers.
