"Storytelling for Pantsers: How to Write and Revise Your Novel Without an Outline", de Annalisa Parent , foi-me cedido pela Netgalley e pelo editor para que eu fizesse uma apreciação honesta deste livro. Não há de momento edição em português. Publiquei a minha opinião na Amazon e no Goodreads com 5/5 estrelas e a seguinte "review":
This book is about a particular way of creative writing. It’s a guide for pantsers. Pantsers are the opposite of plotters. A plotter is someone who plans out their novel before they write it. When they start to write they already know how it is going to end. Because they made an outline. A pantser is someone who doesn’t plan out anything. Pantsers like the freedom of not being stuck following an outline. They can take their novel in any direction they want. That, speaking from my own experience, can be nowhere. Having no plan can mean you end up moving in circles and you don’t know where to go with your story or your characters. You get stuck.
If you are a pantser like me, with unfinished stories hidden in a drawer, read this book. It has great tips on writing in an intuitive, disorganized, untamed way, without an outline or previous plot. Thus, the importance of revising is well explained in this book. It presents pearls of wisdom on a pot (not in!). Really. The whole book is written with a great sense of humor. It’s really easy and enjoyable to read. The author’s writing is vivacious and funny. I recommend it to every fiction writer, not just pantsers.
I received this book as an eARC from the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
