Deb Dixon: Hero to writers

If you are working on a piece of fiction, be it short or long, go get a copy of Deb Dixon's Goal, Motivation & Conflict. It clarifies that which stymies a lot of writers, and it does it in a short, snappy book that gets the job done without undue hooey.

Case in point: Claire now has an impossible decision: either she gets the story that guarantees the IRS won't own her for life but implicates her father (and will send him to prison for good this time), or she protects her father at the cost of her career, her future, and her relationship with the one man who loves her the way she needs to be loved - her editor at the paper. Who is fully expecting a story. And I'm only on p. 59 of Dixon's book.
