TECHNIQUES OF THE SELLING WRITER by Dwight Swain

TECHNIQUES OF THE SELLING WRITER is considered a classic writing book. I personally found it extremely helpful to teach me the basics of plotting and structuring a novel, but the author tends to ramble in his instructions, which can be annoying.

I’ve written articles based on Swain’s book in my writing articles blog, Camy’s Articles.

Swain’s main concept, Scene and Sequel, is explained well in this article by Randy Ingermanson, “Writing the Perfect Scene.”

Another good book that not only explains some of Swain’s points but also expands on them is PLOT AND STRUCTURE by James Scott Bell.
