This is the third in a series of reviews of books read while under the California Stay-at-Home Order (which commenced March 20, 2020). I was halfway through this particular book when the order began.

Excellent basic instructional book on writing. There’s nothing that sets this book apart from many of the other technique books I’ve read, but that doesn’t make it any less worthwhile. If you haven’t read a book on plot and structure, this is a great one to get started with. If you have, this is a great refresher course or great to solidify concepts. I expect to come back many times to the book to reread the areas I’ve highlighted.
Highly recommended for writers of all skill levels.
I’ve uploaded a photo of the Table of Contents to give you an idea of what’s inside and if it’s something of interest to you.
