    This innocuous $1 book will likely prove more valuable to me than 3 years of University education in Creative Writing. The key to this guide is all in the title: "Story Structure Tips". It's not attempting to be an all encompassing bible. There are no grand revelations here; just succinct and well structured practical advice. If only my lecturers had actually covered this stuff instead of sucking the will to live out of me droning on about something naff.

The key to this guide is all in the title: "Story Structure Tips". It's not attempting to be an all encompassing bible. There are no grand revelations here; just succinct and well structured practical advice. If only my lecturers had actually covered this stuff instead of sucking the will to live out of me droning on about something naff. This guide won't be for everyone - for those that are well across this basic information, I live in envy! I maintain aspirations of writing and have several notebooks filled with scrawled ideas and sticky-notes of scene descriptions. I tried to do the good thing and sit down each day to write for a set period no matter what. Yet every day, my writing one day had nothing to do with my writing the day before. The vague scribbles and daydreams that so excited me never coalesced into something more substantial. In those moments when the creativity wasn't flowing, I really needed to take the kind of considered logical approach covered in this guide to help trigger the next wave of on-topic creativity to push those ideas forward. I thoroughly recommend any aspiring writer, particularly if you find yourself struggling like me to put something substantial together, to grab a copy. I can see it being a handy go to reference for me in the future. Some may consider this guide too simplistic and cookie cutter. Don't fret. Learn the rules first, then break them. Good writing to you all.

    4 Stars! First, I really don't know if this book is pretty small. So when I found out this book is less than 200 pages, I were pretty worried if this book not going to give me all information about what I needed. But I'm glad that I'm totally wrong. This book was so packed! You can get all essential information about writing your first novel in here. Pretty Recommended!!

    To kick off your novel, A Novel Idea, by Eddie Jones, is a terrific way to do it. An inexpensive e-book, A Novel Idea was put together from material Jones teaches at conferences at the request of his students. Now everyone can benefit. While not an exhaustive treatise on all aspects of the craft, A Novel Idea packs a punch by hitting all the highlights of plotting, conflict, dialogue, character development, and scene structure. Novel Rocket and I give it our highest recommendation. It's a must h To kick off your novel, A Novel Idea, by Eddie Jones, is a terrific way to do it.

    A Wonderful Read And Incredible Value A concise starting point for the aspiring author. The book's focus on cozy mysteries and romantic-comedies is most useful in establishing story structure.

    Good thoughts, a quick read This book contains some very good ideas and tips for plot and character creation. Most of those ideas I have read in several other books. However, what I liked the most was the sections and scene development. I think Eddie did a great job.

    Great information in a tight little package! Over the course of my life I have read countless books. Yet writing my first novel posed challenges having to do with the basic structure of the work, things I had never considered in depth, things such as plot, scene, character development, internal and external conflict, character predisposition and motivation, building tension, etc. This little book does a marvelous job presenting the gut works of a novel.
