William Noble has chosen parts of three previous books to guide writers through the art of writing a novel. He starts by asking three questions-whats happening?, who am I?, where am I?-and then uses these answers to create a solid foundation for developing a story. With this structure in place, writers move on to motivating the story, establishig a sense of place, and creating tension.
Includes new information on developing characters and using point of view to get the story across. Each of the three books that make up this volume were also main selections of the Writer's Digest Book Club.
