Ken Atchity's Brilliant Book-Structuring Method

I was thrilled to have a visit on my blog from a writing mentor, Ken Atchity, who authored A Writer's Time, one of the textbooks used in my book-structuring classes.

Ken introduced me to the concept of writing in "islands," which makes use of random as well as linear structuring.

If you haven't come across A Writer's Time, be sure to get a copy and read the first five chapters. It'll open your eyes to a brilliant method to organize a new book idea.

Visit Ken's blog for a great post by Garrison Keillor. http://kenatchity.blogspot.com
