Not long ago, I launched into the rough draft of my very first speculative fiction story I started with great gusto, but after a few chapters I realized that I had a problem For some reason my characters seemed to jump from scene to scene like fleas and were equally hard to relate to I knew the story wasn t working correctly, but I couldn t put my finger on what was wrong.After perusing

started with great gusto, but after a few chapters I realized that I had a problem For some reason my characters seemed to jump from scene to scene like fleas and were equally hard to relate to I knew the story wasn t working correctly, but I couldn t put my finger on what was wrong.After perusing internet resources, I found the problem I was writing my novel like it was a screenplay, looking at the characters and their reactions from the outside only, ignoring the key strength of the novel format by never exploring the internal reactions and thought processes of my characters I had scenes but no sequels.I had studied up on structure, character arc, and theme, but like so many of the writing books I had read, I entirely skipped over how to create a page to page and scene to scene flow for my story, or as the fancy people call it narrative drive.To remedy this oversight, I read this book, in parallel with Swain s Techniques of the Selling Writer Both Chester and Swain served as writing professors at the University of Oklahoma, although in different generations Both books cover scene sequel format and other rubber meets road practical fiction writing techniques This book focuses on writing fantasy, but the principles apply and can be easily adapted to any genre The section on writing effective climaxes was also quite helpful to me Although they share some common material, this book is easier to read than Swain s dated delivery It is also easier to digest, lacking the casual sexist overtones noted by many reviewers.All in all, it is a useful and valuable resource 2nd Read It just keeps getting better This is my second read of this book I ve picked up on so many new little tidbits of info that I didn t get the first time around I will pick this book up as a refresher before every book I plan to write It s a goldmine of a resource 1st Read To date the best book about writing I have read This book will be a reference book I call upon often as I write
