I’m delighted today to welcome author Hank Quense to Thoughts in Progress as part of his Blog Tour for CREATING STORIES by Hank Quense through MC Book Tours.
At some point in our lives, we’ve all thought about what it would be like to write a book. We each have stories we’d love to be able to share with others. Do you know how to write that story or how to tell it? Well, CREATING STORIES has the answers.
As part of the tour, Hank is offering an awesome giveaway featuring five (5) eBooks of CREATING STORIES and three (3) print copies of the author’s MOXIE'S PROBLEM (U.S. entries only). See how you can enter to win below. If you don’t want to wait to win a copy of CREATING STORIES, Hank is offering a special ‘half price’ sale that will only be available during his tour (March 20 through April 14).
Hank, the author of more than twenty books, tells you how to write your story. He believes that stories come from the melding of three elements: getting ideas, story design, and story-telling. Ideas have to come from the author. CREATING STORIES covers the last two.

The book concentrates on developing characters including such rarely discussed requirements such as a dominant reader emotion and the character's biography.

A separate chapter discusses the relationship between the plot and the emotional arcs.
Other topics covered are character arcs, scene design, point-of-view, writing voice.
