When I decided I wanted to write, I used your book as a resource during the entire process. Some of the more useful tools and ideas were the section sheets and the use of each section ending in a failure for the lead or a success for the lead's opposition. You were right--without them, the story would have run out of steam way too early and been boring as well. Also the placement of surprises kept the story interesting." --W. E.
