This is not a book to be read and set aside, it is a book to be studied and applied. In this book Jack Bickman offers a distillation of his many years of experience as a professional writer combined with his many years as a professional teacher of writing at the university level. This is a very practical book, and I recommend to anyone who is seriously interested in actually doing the hard work of learning the novelist's craft. This is not a book for dreamers or posers. Bickman devotes the first two chapters of this book to driving home the importance of dedicated hard work, professionalism, and seriousness of purpose involved in crafting a publishable work of fiction
