I absolutely very strongly recommend this book to any and all aspiring writers. Mr. Bell has a way of explaining initially-seemingly abstract concepts in a way that anybody can understand. Right from the beginning, he assumes that you have the story inside you, and have no idea how to get it out, and over the course of the book, gives you very real, practical techniques you can use to get ideas on paper right now. The chapters on how to organize parallel plots and on how to organize individual scenes (on their own and within chapters) are already worth the cost of the book itself. He also manages to keep the book fun and lighthearted, which I would never have expected from a book on how to construct a story. I would actually recommend pairing this together with the book "Make a Scene" by Jordan Rosenfeld, and if you put in the personal effort, all in all, you should be able to get your book, at the very least, drafted almost entirely from those two titles. Highly recommended!!

James Scott Bell does a remarkable job making the book very entertaining, very accessible and with concepts, tricks and lists you can implement right away. While I believed Plot to be a very intrinsic thing that I understood fairly well, his deep know-how opens your mind so much. Highly recommended.

There are loads of books on the topic but I liked how Bell handled it. I learned stuff. So well worth the cost.

Very helpful book. I'm currently doing an MA in creative writing and this has been a useful reference. Includes chapters on defining plot, structure, developing plot ideas, beginnings, middles, endings, scenes, revising plots, common problems and cures.
