Break Into Fiction: 11 Steps to Building a Story that Sells

Break Into Fiction: 11 Steps to Building a Story that Sells - Mary Buckham, Dianna Love "Break Into Fiction" is one of the few writing books that I find an invaluable read for beginning and veteran writers alike. Delving into the plotting of everything from characterization to plot progression, the work uses relevant examples in four examples of cinematic plotting with the addition of incorporating helpful worksheets for the reader/writer to follow and be able to examine each crucial step in the plotting of their own stories. The explanations of each of the writing terms (there's a glossary near the beginning of the work) are thorough while easy to understand. This is a book I'll be coming back to often.
