Update: How This Works

Upon further reading and consideration, I am amending part of How This Works.

From now on:

The Good: the first things that occur to me that were particularly enjoyable or edifying. 

Will also include how I think the book ranks in terms of Artistotle's guide for good story telling.

To boil down his arguments in Poetics: Plot + Character + Probability =  Good Story

In other words, the plot has to flow from the characters in their believability and all the events must be probably according to knowledge of how people and things work.

That is all for now, folks.
