I'm a big fan of J. S. Bell, and have two of his books: Plot and Structure, and Revision and Self-Editing. I haven't tried Bell's fiction, yet.

I also try to do as he suggests and write a minimum of 350-500 words a day. That's a valuable lesson. (Bell, Don Maass, S. King all inspire me in my writing.)

Enjoyed this post, Sylvia. Thanks for the links.

I do believe I have one of his books: Plot and structure- and I have to say he's pretty darn good.

I think his characters book is only 1.99 on Kindle now too. Woohoo! I nabbed those deals already. They're having a holiday sale and one day I ordered a slew of well-known writing books for the grand total of $7. I felt like I just won the lottery! I didn't know about the video, though-- thanks for that heads-up.
