Sinossi

A Magical Key to Unlock Your Creative Wizard



Are you writing a novel, but having trouble getting your first draft written? You’ve heard of “outlining,” but that sounds too rigid for you. You’ve heard of “organic writing,” but that seems a bit squishy to you.

Take a look at the wildly popular Snowflake Method—a battle-tested series of ten steps that jump-start your creativity and help you quickly map out your story. All around the world, novelists are using the Snowflake Method right now to ignite their imaginations and get their first drafts down on paper.

In this book, you’ll follow the story of a fictitious novelist as she learns to tap into the amazing power of the Snowflake Method. Almost magically, she finds her story growing from a simple idea into a deep and powerful novel. And she finds her novel changing her—turning her into a stronger, more courageous person.

Zany, Over the Top, and Just Plain Fun



How to Write a Novel Using the Snowflake Method is a “business parable”—a how-to guide written in story form. It’s zany. It’s over the top. It’s just plain fun. Most important, it’s effective, because it shows you, rather than telling you.

You’ll learn by example how to grow your story idea into a sizzling first draft.

You’ll discover:

  • How to define your “target audience” the right way, so you know exactly how your ideal readers think and feel. Forget what the experts tell you about “demographics.”

  • How to create a dynamite selling tool that will instantly tell people whether they’ll love your story or hate it. And you want them to either love it or hate it.

  • How to get inside the skin of every one of your characters—even your villain. Especially your villain.

  • How to find a deep, emotively powerful theme for your story. Do you know the one best point in your novel to unveil your theme—when your reader is most eager to hear it?

  • How to know when to backtrack, and why backtracking is essential to writing great fiction.

  • How to fire-test each scene to guarantee it’ll be high-impact—before you write it.



Excerpt from Chapter 1



Goldilocks had always wanted to write a novel.

She learned to read before she went to kindergarten.

In grade school, she always had her nose in a book.

In junior high, the other kids thought she was weird, because she actually liked reading those dusty old novels in literature class.

All through high school, Goldilocks dreamed of writing a book of her own someday.

But when she went to college, her parents persuaded her to study something practical.

Goldilocks hated practical, and secretly she kept reading novels. But she was a very obedient girl, so she did what her parents told her. She got a very practical degree in marketing.

After college, she got a job that bored her to tears—but at least it was practical.

Then she got married, and within a few years, she had two children, a girl and then a boy. She quit her job to devote full time to them.

As the children grew, Goldilocks took great joy in introducing them to the stories she had loved as a child.

When her son went off to kindergarten, Goldilocks thought about looking for a job. But her resume now had a seven-year hole in it, and her practical skills were long out of date.

The only jobs Goldilocks could qualify for were minimum wage.

She suddenly realized that being practical had made her horribly unhappy.

On a whim, Goldilocks decided to do the one thing she had always wanted more than anything else—she was finally going to write a novel.

She didn’t care if it was impractical.

She didn’t care if nobody would ever read her novel.

She was going to do it just because she wanted to.

For the first time in years, she was going to do something

I'm not so sure about the method itself, which might work for some. The book explains it using a story with several characters: it's a nice idea, even if it gets quite long and not always to the point.

Nonostante ancora non ho terminato il libro, gli do il massimo della valutazione perché mi piace molto lo stile con cui è scritto.

Il metodo in questione viene spiegato tramite il racconto di un'aspirante scrittrice che ha un idea ma non sa come svilupparla e per inseguire il suo sogno decide di partecipare ad un workshop sulla scrittura. Durante lo svolgimento del racconto alla protagonista verranno spiegati molto chiaramente i 10 passi che costituiscono il metodo che l'aiuteranno a sviluppare il proprio racconto.
I capitoli finali comprendono un riepilogo di tutti i 10 passi, e come ulteriore esempio, la spiegazione passo per passo di come il metodo sia stato utilizzato per sviluppare il libro.

Lo consiglio a tutti gli aspiranti scrittori che hanno una buona conoscenza dell'inglese (come da titolo :D) e che vogliono provare un metodo diverso dai soliti proposti.

Volete un esempio pratico di come applicare il celeberrimo "Metodo del Fiocco di Neve" di Randy Ingermanson? Magari scritto in modo così divertente da strappare anche delle risate? Allora questo è decisamente il libro che fa per voi.

Ingermanson è riuscito a scrivere un manuale di scrittura scrivendo una favoletta sulla scrittura. Tutto collima precisamente, le regole si sovrappongono al racconto. Per un po' di ci sente presi in giro, a sentire narrare di Riccioli d'Oro e del Lupo Cattivo, ma poi ci si accorge che si tratta degli stessi personaggi di Propp, che raccontano se stessi. Una delizia.

5.0 su 5 stelle A hidden gem! 25 luglio 2014
Di Kristen Stevens - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I've used Randy's Snowflake Method before from his website (advancedfictionwriting.com) and while it gave me the best results of any creative paradigm I've tried, the instruction left me feeling a little glassy-eyed.

This book is amazing. It is a hidden gem and I hope this review helps others give it a chance.

There are three layers to this book - the first layer is that you get to read a novel about a girl who learns how to use the Snowflake method on her own story. You learn right along side Goldilocks without realizing you're learning. The examples she reviews with Baby Bear are just as good as if you went to a conference on your own.

The second layer is seeing the application of the lessons. You realize through the story (for me it was about halfway through) that you are actually seeing a plot line unfold that has nothing to do with the World War II story Goldilocks is writing. You might even realize this is the real example Randy was trying to give, not the WWII romance.

The third is the actual instruction - and let me say, this instruction was so much clearer than what was on the website. Maybe it's because of the first two layers... but I really feel like I learned so much more from this book than others.

Writing books talk about writing like it's the driest thing in the world. Randy's book talks about writing and shows us, three times, that his method works.

I don't know what type of writer you are. Maybe the Snowflake method doesn't work for you. But if you've ever read up on it and it sounded interesting, give this book a shot! It is well worth it.

5.0 su 5 stelle Octogenarian LOVES Randy Ingermanson's SNOWFLAKE METHOD! 13 marzo 2015
Di Elizabeth A. Kirby - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I consider Randy Ingermanson my valuable mentor whose SNOWFLAKE Method helped me as I published my first book, Bound, But Unshackled, last year. The SNOWFLAKE method is SUPER! I am in my 80s, living in a retirement community, and am thrilled that I have a reason to get up everyday. I love writing, using the internet for my research and enjoying a fun way to channel any new fiction projects, using Randy's Snowflake Method. I am one octogenarian who loves to write who looks forward every day to new adventures that delight my days. Thanks, Randy, for being a very present help in times like these latter years, and making these years FUN for me! Most sincerely, Betty Kirby

5.0 su 5 stelle This is the best book on writing a book I have ever encountered. 2 maggio 2016
Di SunnyDay - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I am not yet done with this book but I cannot put it down. I am already seeing that this is really helping me shape the novel that has been in my head for years. Some have posted the story within the book was distracting but I am able to identify with his lead character attempting to write a book and her obstacles that I really do believe it was exactly what I needed. There are tons of books on how to write a book and I have read several. Using a fictional character to demonstrate her obstacles brings them more to life than just saying- create an outline and here is how. I have been reading and working with a few great books highly rated that still have me at the first sentence of my creation with no real progress. I already have things moving along now and I have only read a portion of the book. Thank you for writing this! I recommend this to anyone who has not been successful with workshops or the ones I call dreamers who can see the book play out in their minds but are stumped with how to proceed. I am going to consider another book by the author when I am done if I feel I need it. I cannot recommend it enough! Do not be sidetracked by trying to read past the whole Goldilocks analogy. Instead picture yourself as Goldilocks having the experience

3.0 su 5 stelle The Snowflake Method could Work 5 marzo 2016
Di Victoria Osborne - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The Snowflake Method could work.
Today I talk about a small book called “How to write a novel using the Snowflake Method” by Randy Ingermanson. This presents a combination of outlining and organic writing.
He uses the metaphor of Goldilocks at a writers conference to present his ideas. Goldlilocks always wanted to be a writer, but she was trapped in the practical career, the caring for her children, and in general following the good advice people gave to her about her jobs and careers.
She goes to a writers conference and with baby bear finds a style just right for her.
The method is using a mathematical system that starts out with a big picture and putting in more and more detail until you have a rich tapestry of deep characters, complex plots with lots of twists and a finished book.
I have recommended this book to several of my friends who are failed organic writers as a means to add structure and form to their story. Those that are hard core outliner will find this book too organic.
The book presents some interesting thoughts, and exercises, and the use of children’s story book characters makes it very friendly. However, it is just another writing book, it didn’t make me go wow, nor did I want to throw it across the room. If you are wanting something to help you structure you writing but you don’t want to embrace an outline then possibly this book is for you. It is not a bad book, it is a book with some interesting theories.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Well Thought Out Approach To Writing A Novel. 31 marzo 2017
Di C. Hotchkiss - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This is a very effectively written tutorial on the author's methodical approach to organizing material for writing a novel. It is the first writing guide that gets close to closing the gap between high level story requirements and low level, down-and-dirty scene writing.The writing style comes across as "cute" in the beginning, but the result is that what is called for at each step in his methodology is pretty clear. That in itself is remarkable, but the methodology itself is pretty effective. You walk through the process from initial conception to identifying scenes in a top down process. Each step is logical. Each step must be resolved before decending to the next level. And in the process conceptual problems and errors at each level of story are more readily identified where they can be relatively easily corrected. The end result is writing doesn't start until all the necessary details have been worked out and scenes have been defined. It does not help you with coming up with ideas, but it should save you from a lot of extensive re-writing. The method had its limits. It assumes a three act story structure. However, I can see how it might easily be altered to deal with stories like the Indiana Jones series, where you have multiple peaks without pushing the methodology to the breaking point. Worth trying.
