Writing is Hard: The Master Fiction Plot
Even though it's been around longer than I've been alive, I don't think I've read Lester Dent's (Doc Savage) essay on how to write successful Pulp fiction before now. I'm much less fond of writing-formulas and templates than I used to be, but Dent obviously had a lot of luck with it. So while I can't see myself using it a lot, I do think it would be a fun exercise to at least try it out on an appropriate story.
