I was really inspired to purchase this book when I realized I couldn't simply meander and write every single thing I thought relevant. What I needed was STRUCTURE and clear plot lines.
Plot and Structure opened me up to techniques I have found invaluable to my whole writing experience. Now I had a guide, almost a mentor, if you like, pointing out the way ahead, and how to avoid mistakes on the way!
I heartily recommend Plot and Structure for writers, especially if you have a story in mind but are struggling not only with a gripping beginning, but a sagging middle. MIDDLES have always been the most challenging parts to a writer. And definitely if you are a 'Pantser'. It will help in organizing yourself to have a plan and know where you're going. I actually picked out the relevant points I needed to follow and printed them on four large cards which I pinned up in my line of sight. It saved me from reading the manual every time I needed help.
