    Practical Insights for Fiction Writers

    This book gives a brief overview of novel structure, and then dives into exploring five specific events within the standard three-act structure: The Inciting Event, The Key Event, The Pinch Points, The Moment of Truth at the Midpoint, and The Climactic Moment. Most of these terms I’d heard before, although not all, but I found the author’s explanations and examples helped me grasp them more fully. I appreciated the practical illustrations from existing novels and movies. As I was reading, I could see how these different elements might look in my current writing project. This isn’t a book about “writing by the numbers,” but about how to use a solid structure (or progression) to present the story we want to share. I can see it being helpful to plotters ahead of time and to seat-of-the-pants writers in the revision stage.
