An absolute must have for any aspiring writer and a great tool for experienced ones who just want to be reminded. The advise is clear, practical and there are so many times when I felt light bulbs going on! It reads well as well. Will certainly come back to it again and again!
How to write structured fiction is explained with copious examples that are analysed line by line. The sequence of scene and sequel is - again - explained in detail and in a way that makes it easy to follow and understand. So from the smallest of components to plotting the whole novel, all the building blocks are very well laid out. If something is wrong with one of your scenes, go back to basics - i.e. this book - and you can fix it.
Conclusion: One of the best in this how-to-series, make sure you buy it!

I am so glad I purchased this book. It lays everything down you wish to know about scene structure, breaking it down into easy
to understand compartments. It is one of the best aids to any new, intermediate writer, in fact I would say it is essential.
It gives you easy to follow examples, breaking down scene and sequel and then the various permutations.
Get it, read it and apply, that is my recommendation.
Thank you Mr Bickham.
