Discover the Plot of Your Life Story
Every memoir ever written participates in a universal pattern as words grow and expand into sentences, paragraphs, and chapters. What is left after the end of the memoir has the potential to transform not only the writer, but all those who read the story.
With the help of plot and the concept of Universal Story, you will learn to:
- Push aside the words of your memoir and see the bigger picture of your story
- Push aside your everyday drama and see the bigger picture of your life
- Create a more fulfilling relationship with your story and your writing life
During this wonderful teleseminar by friend and colleague Martha Alderson, we are celebrating her new book The Plot Whisperer, and the knowledge she has to share about plot, how to write a gripping story, and techniques fiction writers use to make a story reach deep into your emotions and even your soul.
Martha combines her knowledge about how people learn from twenty years of working with thousands of children with her expertise about plot and the structure of story. She has analyzed hundreds of novels, memoirs, and screenplays, and taught thousands of writers for over twenty years. She takes readers and writers alike beyond the words and into the very heart of a story.

Listening to Martha’s advice on this call took my perspective on my manuscript to a whole new level. She lays out a compelling visual process that keeps the story on track-complete with the critical elements of transformation, crisis, and climax. I wish I knew about this process when I started writing 2 1/2 years ago. It would have saved me a great deal of time and effort… Thank you, Linda Joy, for arranging this valuable lesson.
