Useful tips and in some places, a nice kick in the pants to motivate writers.

Can't put the book down

These stories about a self-made pholosophical detective are so riveting, I find it hard to stop reading them. You can almost see the movie reel playing in your head.

Bell has once again nailed down the truth of a topic for detailed examination. Voice separates the great writers from the simply talented, but learning how to develop this particular aspect of the craft of writing mystifies and frustrates writers. Thank you, Mr. Bell, for your insightful book.

purpose of structure

Through clear examples and plain-language explanations, James Scott Bell details how to organize and brainstorm stronger, deeply-moving stories. Highly recommended reading for storytellers, both outliners and pantsers.
