Story Maps: How to Write a GREAT Screenplay
Story Maps: How to Write a GREAT Screenplay by Daniel Calvisi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is an excellent book on plotting for screenwriters or novelists. Calvisi distills a ton of information into concise chunks, and explains the beats of successful commercial fiction. I’m always on the lookout for plotting books, as it’s an area that interests me and continues to confound me. What I loved most in the book was his story map, both simple and detailed. By using this as a guide when planning a story, it really helps keep you focused, and ensures you’ve got a cohesive and cogent story. Excellent book and highly recommended.
