As a fiction writer myself, I love to study the masters of the trade, from the fabulous screenwriting teacher of Story, the great Robert McKee, to Orson Scott Card, and the many professors who instruct others in the art. But K.M. Weiland has distilled much of that knowledge into a writer's resource that is succinct and extremely useful, whether you are a seat of your pants writer (a pantser) such as myself, or a writer who doesn't even begin the draft until a detailed outline is complete.
I still take a month-long break between novels to study the craft, but when I start laying out my plots, developing my characters, and working on the character and story arcs, I pull out K.M. Weiland's STRUCTURING YOUR NOVEL. It has certainly made my work much easier.

I've been wondering for quite some time whether there was a logical structure underpinning the art of writing novels. In this wonderful reference book K.M. Weiland confirms there is. She goes on to explain it in a way that makes sense and is easy to understand.
I'm very glad I read this book and recommend it to others who want to better understand the craft of writing.

This is a very clear and useful book on plotting a novel. Nicely structured and full of insight.
I was looking for "Techniques of the selling writer" but I couldn't find it. this in the other hand contains the same principles and techniques.
