Super Simple Story Structure

A Quick Guide to Plotting and Writing Your Novel

Are you struggling to start your novel? Stuck in the middle?

Finished a first draft, but it doesn’t really grab you?

Super Simple Story Structure is a short, easy-to-read book that lets you speed through your first draft, minimize major rewrites, and keep readers turning the pages.

The book includes specific questions and prompts to expand and focus your story idea. And provides examples from plots as diverse as The Terminator, The Awakening, and Gone With The Wind.

Using those exercise and examples, bestselling author Lisa M. Lilly (writing as L. M. Lilly) walks you through the five simple steps she’s used to write every novel she’s published.

You’ll learn to create:

  • Strong Conflict
  • Characters The Reader Cares About
  • Five Basic Plot Points
  • Compelling Subplots

Most important, Super Simple Story Structure walks you through what should happen in the middle of the novel–-that spot that many writers approach with dread.

What you’ll create won’t be so structured that you’ll feel hemmed in and stifled, but it will be enough that you can write your first draft quickly, without getting stuck staring at a blank screen for an hour, then giving up and checking your social media accounts.
