Just a few chapters into this book, I went out and bought it. It's a very simplified approach to how to map out and write a novel. It's also a thin book - too many books on "how to write" are so overblown and full of nothing but pages and pages of composition. This one gets to the guts of the process. In all honesty I haven't finished it yet, but I think it's going to help me a lot.
