The discovery of story structure was extremely eye-opening to me. In ‘Structuring Your Novel’ K.M Weiland gives you the tools that you need to craft a story from idea to manuscript. She covers the subject in detail, providing a multitude of real-world examples at every step along the way. Weiland then proceeds to detail scene structure what was equally eye-opening for me. If story structure gives you the tools to create your overview, then scene structure shows you how to put each nut and bolt in place. Finally we delve down to the sentence level to help us flesh out our scenes.
If I were to recommend just one book on writing to any aspiring author it would be this one. In its pages you will find the lessons that every writer needs to learn. My own writing has improved dramatically from these lessons. I give this book my highest recommendation to anyone who wants to know how stories are put together.
