I found this a very helpful book to aid in thinking about both the larger structure of a novel, and also the internal structure of the work on a smaller scale (scene and sequel). The writer’s style is casual and engaging, and her advice is very practical. It’s a sort of checklist approach to structure that some “discovery” writers may not want to use before they’ve written a first draft, but that could be very useful in the revision process. And dedicated outliners should be able to use this method to craft a strong framework for their stories. Highly recommended if you’re planning, writing, or revising a novel.
