Anyone who knows me would not contest that statement.
The Plot Whisperer arrived on my door step. Squee!!
In the first pages it suggests that you identify your strengths and weaknesses. Are you linear or circular in your thought process.
A linear thinker is left brained and can easily create dialogue and action packed scenes.
Circular thinkers are known to fall in love with the characters and ponder themes and meanings. They are right brained.
The left brain struggles with right brained activities and the right brain struggles with the left.
A balanced brain can deal with all of the above.
In my pursuit of all things write it makes sense to me how utilizing the whole brain would be a good thing. I do struggle with linear and the logical. It is a part of me that I will work on.
A passage that I liked from the book that I wanted to share. Doesn't have to do with left or right but I liked it. The book came very highly recommended and though I'm in the early stages of reading it, I can see why.
"When you move from talking about writing a book, a screenplay, or your memoir to actually doing it, you join your destiny. Once you begin, there is no turning back. The act of writing changes you. The transformation has already begun."
