I ordered this book as soon as I saw it because I was hooked by the premise (which makes sense given the book’s subject matter). What does the brain crave from every story, and how can you write yours to transfix your readers and make sure they keep turning pages?
Using brain science to reveal the evolutionary purpose of story and how we, as writers, can tap into readers’ desires, this book seems a unique take on improving our writing by creating the kind of compelling stories readers need.
I haven’t read it yet because I plan to take it with me to the LA-SCBWI conference, but I’ve started skimming, so I can say it promises to be an excellent read. Want to win one of your own? Do any or all of the tasks below. I’ll draw a winner on August 7th when I return from LA. Good luck!Books, Giveaway, Writing · Tags: Books, Giveaway, Julie Hedlund, Wired for Story, Writer, Writing
