Every writer struggles with spots that "just aren't working" in their manuscript. No other book on the market approaches works like Fiction First Aid does, which quickly shows how seemingly fatal errors can become both manageable and fixable. Novice and more experienced writers alike will appreciate the book's techniques for identifying and revising weaknesses in their work. Fiction First Aid shows how to repair those wounded manuscripts through easy-to-follow steps, patterned after those found in your typical first-aid manual: 1) Diagnose the problem; 2) Suggest specific remedies; 3) Prescribe therapies to avoid the problem in the future; It couldn't be any easier!

This helped me so much. I've read books like this but this one really nailed all my areas. I can see the passion to writing better than ever before. If you're struggling and still a novice (sort of like I was although I'd still say I'm a novice.) Pick this up. Do it!
