Beginnings, Middles and Ends

Beginnings, Middles and Ends by Nancy Kress

A how to write book.

With plenty of useful advice about how the beginning sets up the book's promise, transitions to your second scene, development of the middle, point of view structures, having it all collide in the climax, and the denouement.  Getting unstuck, working out how to develop the character rather than pull things like rabbits out of hats, and more.
