Plot Versus Character: A Balanced Approach to Writing Great Fiction

Plot Versus Character: A Balanced Approach to Writing Great Fiction - Jeff Gerke Every once in a while, there’s a book that’s lain unread in my TBR pile which, I discover when I eventually read it, is worth its weight in gold. “Plot versus Character: A Balanced Approach to Writing Great Fiction” by Jeff Gerke is one of those books.

With flashes of natural humour, a sound logical approach and clear, easy-to-read language, Gerke teaches writers how to balance great character sketches with page-turning plots. He shows how both plot and character must be integrated to provide the reader with a story that both satisfies and entertains. And he does it all with such enthusiasm that, as a writer, I caught his excitement and found ideas for my new novel emerging out of the mists of my muse.

No matter how experienced one is as a writer, or what your writing style is, this book is an essential part of any writer’s library.
