Techniques of the Selling Writer

Make Your Book a Page-Turner with Scenes and Sequences

Techniques of the Selling Writer quickly became a classic.

It's a must-have on every fiction writer's bookshelf. Virtual or not. (Mine is the Kindle version.)

My biggest take-away from this book is the way the author creates scenes.

He deals with two versions:

Scenes and sequels.

In the scenes, you have a goal, conflict and disaster.

In sequels, you have reaction, dilemma and decision.

The decision is the new goal. I suggest you read the book to learn more about this important structure. It can turn a dull book into a riveting yarn.
