This review is from: Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook (Paperback)
I agree with another reviewer that this should be called "revising" rather than writing. The excercises are interesting and thought-provoking, but (and this would go for any book that claims to teach you how to write a novel) do not use this unless you have a complete first draft of your novel. Using this before you have all your ideas and plans written down may very well hinder your progress because you get so wrapped up in editing and revising.
So, don't be misled by the title of this book or most other how to writing books. Use them only after you are complete with a first draft, otherwise you may never get that first draft done.
