Shawn Coyne’s book is a lifeline for any writer in a struggle with his/her inner editor. He explains his Story Grid system for evaluating a manuscript through an intensive analysis of The Silence of the Lambs by Thomas Harris. Even though the sections were short, it took me longer to read than usual for a non fiction book. I paused between sections to take notes and process the information.

An excellent guide for all writers to provide them with a solid, objective framework to not only map out their stories but to diagnosis them afterward to find the weak points and take corrective action.
