By experience I agreed there was no method to teach how to write a novel, until I found this book. After reading it I realize that anybody with sensibility, passion and love for the craft, will have a most comprehensive technical kit, developed by experts in fiction creativity, to write a book in the hardest fiction gender there is. The rest has to do with the well known needed personal touch of the wizard's apprentice, to be able to make the cauldron boil.
