Plot Gardening is the best piece of clarity that I’ve been given as a writer. I’ve read so much on the craft, The Snowflake Method and many others, yet this one answered so many questions for me, many of which I didn’t even realise I had. When I was only 30% of the way through Plot Gardening I basically threw my fist into the air and shouted out ‘YES’. I have to say, this is THE most exciting book I have read for my craft since I began writing. I have made copious notes for my characters, their arc’s and so much has now been clarified. Thanks so much Chris. This has changed the way I now write, and its for the better. I can now honestly say, I’m no longer a ‘pantser’ I’m now a Plot Gardener.
I've always been a bit of a pantser who counts on a vague outline to get my books written. This book gave me a greater understanding of outlining, along with new processes to help me steer through my messy first drafts. Highly recommended.
