Descrizione prodotto


"This book belongs on every fiction writer's bookshelf. Anyone who has ever had a story to tell and is dying to get it down on paper will find guidance and inspiration in GMC. The presentation is clear, immediate, and relevant to all writers--from novices to seasoned professionals. Experienced author Debra Dixon has done a magnificent job of demystifying the toughest aspect of fiction writing: that of a giving a story shape, form and urgency." -- Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling and RITA® Award winning author of over 40 novels and novellas

"One of the best in her craft." -- Toronto Star

"Goal, Motivation & Conflict is one of my all time favorites." -- Jane Porter (Flirting With Forty), award winning and bestselling author with 10 million books in print, in twenty languages and 25 countries

Goal, motivation, and conflict are the foundation of everything that happens in the story world. Using charts, examples, and movies, the author breaks these key elements down into understandable components and walks the reader through the process of laying this foundation in his or her own work.

Learn what causes sagging middles and how to fix them, which goals are important, which aren't and why, how to get your characters to do what they need for your plot in a believable manner, and how to use conflict to create a good story. GMC can be used not only in plotting, but in character development, sharpening scenes, pitching ideas to an editor, and evaluating whether an idea will work.

Be confident your ideas will work before you write 200 pages.

Plan a road map to keep your story on track.

Discover why your scenes aren't working and what to do about it.

Create characters that editors and readers will care about.

5.0 su 5 stelle Concise, easy to follow advice for writers 25 dicembre 2014
Di cadi74 - Pubblicato su

This is the first book about writing I have finished since Stephen King's "On Writing." It is an easy, concise read which summarizes the elements for good character driven stories into three nutshells (goal, motivation, and conflict). I found it tremendously helpful as I tend to spend much more energy on character and setting than on plotting (pantser here). The idea that as long as I know what my characters want, why they want it, and what might prevent them from getting it, I don't have to spend much time on plot because it creates itself appeals to me. Whether you're a pantser or a plotter, I think the information and ideas gathered in this book are well worth reading and implementing.
5.0 su 5 stelle the best book on writing that I have ever read 15 gennaio 2017

I heard about this book from one of the speakers who gave a talk to our local writer's group, Writer's Alliance of Gainesville, and based on her recommendation,I decided to purchase it GMC. This is, hands down, the best book on writing that I have ever read, and I do have a small collection of books on writing. This book has helped me more in a practical sense than any other book in the actual construction and writing of my novel, which is a romantic mystery adventure. The way I used this book was as sort of a check list in the last round of edits on my last read through of my final draft. As a result of the strategies suggested in GMC, I went back and added critical scenes and information that was missing, which really improved the quality of my work in terms of content. This is exactly the push I needed to finish off my book in the best possible way Without question, I will refer back to GMC in writing the next book in my mystery series. Five stars is not enough!

Debra Dixon provides an easy to follow model to make sure a writer's characters are fully and deeply drawn. I wish they'd re-print this as an inexpensive paperback. I bought the e-book, and while I had no trouble following it, some of the charts are a bit small. I bet if they did a print run (or POD) they'd have no trouble selling.

5.0 su 5 stelle Debra Dixon's Classic Book Offers Real GMC (read: gems) to fiction writers 3 febbraio 2016
Di Fulan - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a very useful book for all fiction writers. I'm using it to get some order in my confused ideas and to see what is really necessary to tell my story: Goal, Motivation and Conflict. It is very helpful to go back to the basics with Debra Dixon's book and forget all the well-meaning but in most cases superfluous ideas one gets by reading too much until you're not sure anymore what you really need and what you can safely leave out from your story. Debra Dixon's book is written in a clear compact style and you easily read it in one evening to get all the advice you may need. Dixon uses four well-known stories, The Wizard of Oz, Ladyhawke, Casablanca and the Client, to exemplify all the relevant aspects which are common to all bestseller type of stories. It's very relaxing to read an author who knows her subject inside out and to be sure that she gives you all the advice you may need in writing a book you're readers will love. Guaranteed.

Every now and again I come across a writing blog that mentions GMC, which stands for Goal Motivation Conflict, and is the simple yet powerful concept explained in this book. It’s simple, because most books on writing craft emphasise these three aspects of writing (even if they give them different names) and powerful because conflict—internal and external—is the essence of good fiction. GMC gives a way of ensuring this is properly integrated into the entire plot, whether that is at the plotting, writing or revision stage.

Dixon uses movies such as The Wizard of Oz and Indiana Jones to explain the concepts (in fact, she recommends readers watch the movies before reading the book, so they will get the full benefit).

GMC is structured in four main sections: Goal, Motivation, Conflict and Scenes. Each section has a helpful list of the main points covered in the section, and the author is very persuasive in her belief that the GMC concept can help all writers, but that each writer can and will choose to apply the concept in a different way.

Dixon also answers the question of why I don’t write fiction:

“If conflict makes you uncomfortable or you have difficulty wrecking the lives of your characters, you need to consider another line of work.”

Yes, I’ll stick with reading.

I’ve read books that were obviously written using the GMC concept, and while I didn’t always like some of the characters, their purpose was clear. I’ve also read some books that obviously weren’t written based on the GMC concept, and they were lacking. Some were lacking conflict, some were lacking character goal, some were lacking in not having a single likeable character. Give conflict is the basis of all good fiction, authors will benefit from using an approach like this. Recommended.
