Amongst the many writing resources available, some of my favorite come from none other than K.M Weiland of Helping Writers Become Authors. Straight forward and easy to understand content, the book and the accompanying workbook are well worth the investment.
Structuring Your Novel is one of three (also, Outlining Your Novel and Creating Character Arcs), and possibly my favorite. (Really though, they’re all three great). Ever been confused about where exactly to place certain scenes in your story? This book will help you understand how to start the story, what the midpoint should consist of, and how to bring it to that tense climax. Plus, it hits some of the smaller points along the way so that your story doesn’t do that ‘lag in the middle’ business that can cause a reader to put down the book and not pick it back up.
I highly recommend K.M. Weiland’s series on writing a novel. I’ve seen an improvement in the strength of my plot already!
