Before I struggled with structure as applied to my writing and not just as theory. I no longer struggle with structure as applied to my writing.

This book is well written, clear, holds much information in its two parts (overall then scene) and is also a fantastic reference book once read cover to cover as each chapter and section is self-maintained.

I have returned to this book time and again for refreshing my checklist of my rewriting schedule. It never lets me down.

I have bought a fair few of these How To books, and this one is in my top 5.

Very clear writing, with just the right amount of examples to illustrate the points.

Thank you for writing such a clear book!

Having read and enjoyed KM Weiland's Outlining Your Novel, I knew this book was a must have. It didn't disappoint. Ms Weiland has an accessible style that is easy to follow whilst passing on a wealth of information. Both Structuring and Outlining are essential tools for any writer striving to improve their craft.

I will be recommending this book to all my writer friends. The first section, on the plot structure as a whole, is particularly helpful.

Structuring Your Novel is the first book I've read that actually explains what editors expect to see in a novel--ie what should happen in your novel and when. It provides aspiring novelists with an appropriate structure on which to hang their story ideas; and, if you've already written a novel, you can also use this structure to see where you may have gone wrong. It's very straightforward, easy to read, and provides a wealth of useful information for writers. The first part of this book discusses novel structure; the second part covers scenes. In the Kindle format, it's an absolute bargain.

So pleased I bought this book. I had just completed the first draft of a novel and was concerned that the plot line not being tight enough. This book was brilliant and is the second book I've read by this author.

It's a must if you're trying to perfect your writing craft.

This book has been a real eye opener to me. I am confident that it will be of considerable help to my writing. Writing a lengthy novel has its difficulties in terms of construction. I have found it to be well written, well explained without a hint of waffle. I'm glad I came across it quite by chance. My congratulations to the author.

Very useful, simple to understand, and convincing. I have read a few books on this topic, but found this to be the best. I recommend it to others considering how to structure their novels.

A topic that can often be over, or under, explained depending on the book. Weiland appears to strike the right balance in this book. The explanations are in depth, with good example given, but are not bloated and overly complicated. I like the fact the the book explains structure in terms of the novel as a whole, scene and even within each sentence of writing.

A great guide that offers insight for new and experienced writers to keep in mind
