    Terrific book, Young Writers!

    "We thought we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong." Bono Check! Got it! Asking ourselves the right questions is critical to success. But … simply knowing which inquiries are the “right questions” isn’t so simple. It’s miserable, in fact, when we, as young writers, can’t even identify the writing problem at hand. Good news, though. Thanks to K. M. Weiland’s new work, her “Creating Character Arcs Workbook,” we needn’t lose ourselves in the numbing confusion of misleading questions. Skip the drudgery! Want to create a killer character arc? Get the book. Like her other invaluable works on craft, the internationally acclaimed novelist offers priceless strategies in this book as well – and guides us, moreover, to the best book we can write. Included: • The Positive Change Arc • The Flat Arc • Negative Change Arc 1: Disillusionment. • Negative Change Arc 2: Fall. • Negative Change Arc 3: Corruption. It’s a great book. It’s the sum of her prolific talent. Which is ample. The workbook is so dense with knowledge, in fact, that, by the time you finish reading it, you’ll feel as if you’ve experienced a personal mentorship with her. I say this because Ms. Weiland shares more than just knowledge; she shows how to work intelligently. You owe this book to yourself. If you aspire to write, if you write and wish to improve your skills, if you’re a published author and wish to compose novels faster, then the only right question is this: Will you get a copy?

    Help your characters to fulfil their full potentia

    I think K.M. Weiland's website is a great resource for writers and I love the series where she dives into a topic spending weeks or months exploring everything you could possibly need to know. With this book, she has taken one of the series that has helped me the most and turned it into a workbook. I enjoy writing character arcs because of how they allow me to know how my character should be acting or reacting at any given moment of the plot. This book walks you through the entire process of creating your character arc. First, you'll read a chapter about which arc is right for your story and how to know if you're choosing the right arc. Once you've selected an arc the book is divided into sections so you only see information pertaining to the arc you are currently working on. What I found most useful was the corresponding page numbers for the "Creating Character Arcs" book which I referred back to a number of times. You don't need to have the other book but since I already owned it I took full advantage of the extra resource. For my character who had a flat arc, I wrote eight pages (front and back) worth of answers to the thought-provoking questions the workbook poses. Even if you write more or less than I did I think you'll come finish this book with a better understanding of your character, plot, and theme.

    5.0 out of 5 starsK. M. Weiland Never Disappoints

    I received an ARC copy for an honest review. K. M. Weiland has a way of showing you what she means and giving you tools to put it to action. This companion workbook to Creating Character ARCS is no different. I highly recommend this and all her work. I've never been disappointed.

    I loved it!

    I loved it! As she does in other books, K.M. Weiland explains in such a clear and complete way a lot of things you need to know to write fiction. Reading this book, I could understand where I must change the plot and character in order to create better character arc and, even more important, I could better understand what kind of arc is the best for that piece of fiction I'm writing and for that character.

    Take Your Writing to the Next Level!

    Author K.M. Weiland does an excellent job of walking a writer through creating a character that is full, interesting, and changes over the course of a story. She has exercises at the end of each chapter to help you develop your own ideas as well as plenty of choices and examples of what to do with this knowledge she shares. My personal favorite is the 'lie your character believes' and what the character does with that lie. Will he/she overcome it or not and why and how do you work this outcome in your writing. Following this book will push your writing to the next level. Highly recommend!
