Over and over, struggling writers make the same fatal mistakes in their manuscripts. Even writers who have studied all the best writing craft books and taken workshops and followed writers' blogs still don't get the structure. Truth is, a lot of writers believe they can write a novel without taking time to learn the nuts and bolts of novel construction.

Ideas and instructions on how to mind map your characters, plot, settings, themes-all the important elements of your story-and integrate them into your 12 pillars. In addition, you'll get 12 comprehensive "inspection checklists," each with 12 sets of deep, thought-provoking questions meant to ensure your pillars are truly strong enough to hold the weight of your story. You need to pass every inspection! Don't waste time trying to guess at novel structure. By using this concise, detailed blueprint, you can be sure you'll end up with a terrific novel-every time!

Partnering is a set of strategic actions that deliver vast improvements in construction performance. It is driven by a clear understanding of mutual objectives and cooperative decision making by a number of firms, who are all focused on using feedback to continuously improve their joint performance. A 'second generation' of Partnering has now emerged that requires a strategic decision to cooperate in improving joint performance by a client and a group of consultants, contractors and specialists engaged in an ongoing series of projects. Second Generation Partnering is underpinned by 'Seven Pillars'. Each pillar represents a set of management actions that provide an essential element of Second Generation Partnering. The research also identifies the beginnings of a third generation of Partnering in which the construction industry becomes a truly modern industry producing and marketing a range of products and services that clients are eager to invest in. The dramatic improvements in performance delivered by Second and Third Generation Partnering enable construction firms to meet the demands of their customers - whether they need greater certainty, better designs, faster delivery, lower costs, zero defects, guarantees or sophisticated after-care services.

Since the 2008 economic meltdown, market-driven globalization has posed new challenges for governments. This volume introduces the concept of “grey zones” of global governance, where state policy and market behaviour interact with respect to trade, the environment, food security, and investment. Grey zones allow for the bending of international rules, which both promotes uniformity in many areas of public life and facilitates diverse forms of capitalism in market societies, enabling governments to balance national and global economic benefits. This exploration of local engagement with international economic law offers an innovative way to interpret public concerns about trade, investment, food security, green energy, subsidies, and anti-dumping actions.
