What it DOES do is help you map out the finer points of the things that won't actually make their way into your book - things like character's motives, possible plot twists, etc. I've filled out a few pages based on the book I was already working on, but I had to skip over a lot - I'm just not there yet with my story. I think it's going to be one of those things where you read everything over, answer the questions you can answer now, then write a little bit - then go back and see where it led you. At least I hope that's going to be a good option - that's sort of what I'm doing with it.
I do wish that they would have included a few more character sketch sections... They have one protagonist and one antagonist for most of the sections involving descriptions. My story is a zombie outbreak story - the antagonist (hordes of zombies) have been pretty much written and rewritten for me, hundreds of times, but I have 8 characters that are directly related to my story. Of course, I could just write the answers on a separate sheet of paper, which I probably should have done anyway, but I guess I was feeling a bit "nostalgic" or something because I wanted to actually write in my workbook. Oh well, if that's the only complaint I can find, it's not too bad.
This workbook will help you think about the aspects of your story that won't actually make it into the book, and may help you decide what to keep and what to throw out. If you use it along with Scrivener, it can definitely help you flesh out some things when you're stuck. In fact, that's when I started working through it: I got stuck in a section of my book that was already outlined. So, I started flipping through the pages, and evaluated the answers to certain questions. Bam. No more stuck-ness.
If you already have a general idea for your story and you want something to help walk you through it to find the rest of the information buried within, this workbook is wonderful. There are a few examples (possibly more in the accompanying book - I didn't actually buy that, but might consider buying it in the future, depending on how long it takes me to work through the workbook with my current story) but for the most part, they don't do anything for you; they just hold your hand. Which is great for me - I hate "guides" that tell you exactly what to do.
