Thinking Theme: The Heart of the Matter
- Red Sneaker Writers Book Series, Book 8
- By: William Bernhardt
- Narrated by: William Bernhardt
- Length: 2 hrs and 55 mins
Why do some books linger in memory long after they are over? Why are some books reread, recommended, shared in the classroom? How can you add your book to this distinguished company? The key is theme, giving your story a dynamic idea that lends it power and purpose. William Bernhardt explains what theme is, how it is best revealed, and how to find the theme that, handled correctly, will distinguish your book from all the others. Plus, in the final chapter, Bernhardt explains how your book can have a positive impact on the world in which you live.
Wonderfully Series, definitely Heart

No, Bernhardt, Ayn Rand wasn't a communist
I think Stephen King said in "On Writing" that he devised a theme at the start of writing for two of his books, with positive results. Bernhardt, I believe, says that the only way theme appears is by emerging during the writing process.
