Invisible Ink: A Practical Guide to Building Stories that Resonate
by Brian McDonald
Brian McDonald is “a sought after instructor and consultant, Brian has taught his story structure seminar at PIXAR, DISNEY FEATURE ANIMATION and LUCASFILM’s ILM.”
I have studied songwriting, and my favorite text is “Nashville Songwriting” by Jerry Cupit. It is fabulous because it strips all the excess description and rules about writing a song and leaves simple tenets.
I’ve read only three books on writing recently, and all of them were great in their own way. But, if I could only take one of them to my desert island with my Farrah Fawcett poster, I would take “Invisible Ink”. I’m still digesting the content, but it has helped me finally grasp the theme of my current work in process. That is huge for me. So much to learn. I’m enjoying the journey. Hope you are enjoying your journey too.
