    CKmtl: While these two works touch on the same material, I find Bell's treatment slightly better.

Delightfully practical, focused on skill-building, with concrete exercises. ( )

Easy to get through with some exercises, charts, and tips I definitely plan on using. The info isn't really new, but it's always helpful to hear. I enjoyed it and took a few notes besides.

Beware any judgments the author makes on genres outside of mysteries and thrillers--they're not necessarily wrong, but very frequently a shallow understanding. ( )

This is a very detailed "how to" guide with lots of explanations and useful exercises. I suspect it is far more useful for writers who have at least some experiences. As a total beginner I found it hard to understand some of the references and connections. Definitely something I should get back to when I have written a few more stories. Trying to tackle all the issues and questions I have at once (which is what yu could use this book for) proved to be too much.

Recommended for fiction writers who have some experience, know what they are looking for, and are willing to work on their craft. ( )

James Scott Bell presents an excellent, thorough presentation of developing the plot and structure of a book. He gives tools to use that enable various writing styles and methods to 'fit' the principles of what works. He emphasizes action that brings the reader to be engrossed in the character's conflict.

He demonstrates how to hook the reader from the beginning.
Bell provides help for those struggling books that flounder in the middle.
He shows how to leave the reader satisfied at the end.

His methods are helpful for those who organize and for those who don't.
His approach is logical with the spontaneity required for freshness and originality.

It is a resource that I will keep on my shelves for reading again---to remind and to assimilate what I didn't 'get' the first time.

Sometimes I hate myself and my need to finish reading anything I start, no matter how boring or how terrible it is. This book is the absolute worst example of this.

My experience with this book was akin to being told some mildly useful advice by someone you can’t stand, find painfully boring, and have trouble taking seriously. There is a lot of good, if basic, information here, but it’s a boring and sterile read that makes writing seem soulless and mechanical; and I find it hard to look past James Scott Bell’s taste in literature. Most of his examples are from James Patterson and Dean Koontz, both of whom Bell seems to have a huge thing for.

Perhaps there’s an argument to be made for the fact that both of them are best sellers, but you know who else is a best seller? Stephenie Meyer. Best seller does not a good writer make, and while I haven’t read enough of either author to say that what they write is garbage (even though it totally is), I think I can say that using them as examples of great writing, in a book about writing, was a questionable move at best. Anyone planning on reading this would be much better served by picking up Begnnings, Middles, & Ends by Nancy Kress. It essentially covers the same territory but, unlike this piece of trash, is one of the best books on writing that has ever been written.

So long James Scott Bell. I won’t be reading any more books by you. Especially since I did a little research and found out that, besides books about writing, literally all you write is crime thrillers full of Christian propaganda and I threw up in my mouth a little bit. I wish I could say it was fun while it lasted, but it was hell.
