Ben Foster Tobit Writer
PREMISE: Tobit is an observant Dutch Jew living in Amsterdam. He lives correctly, giving alms and burying the dead. In spite of his good works, Tobit is struck blind. Concurrent with Tobit’s story is that of Sarah, daughter of one of Tobit’s distant relative, whose seven successive husbands are each killed by a demon on their wedding night. When Tobit and Sarah pray to God for deliverance, God sends the angel Raphael to act as intercessor. Tobit regains his sight, and Sarah marries Tobit’s son Tobias. The story closes with Tobit’s thanksgiving and an account of his death. This is actually a Jewish short story possibly dating from Persian times in some Bibles is the book of Tobit, named after the father of its hero.

The Writing Method Preference Test
If youre still not certain whether you are a tree person or a forest person, Ive created a very unscientific test that may persuade you that you tend toward one direction rather than the other.
This is not to say you shouldnt try both pathsbut I have made an effort to speak your language and I recommend that you follow your natural writing method directions before you start exploring elsewhere.
Having read this far, you probably know what kind of person you are or at least which writing method you lean toward. The advantage of knowing this is that through the rest of this book you will have special instructions to follow, while writers of the opposite persuasion will go elsewhere to cover the same material from a different point of view.
