But! I was at my friends’ apartment the other night and was perusing their bookshelf when I happened upon Ready, Set, Novel! Intrigued, I opened it, expecting a boring writer’s guide or something, and was delighted to discover it was a workbook for plotting out a novel. I immediately pulled out my phone, went to Amazon, and bought it. It was waiting on my doorstep the *next* day. Four for you, Amazon shipping department.
I began using the workbook last night and if this is the kind of thing I've been missing whilst planning a story, then boy do I have some lost time to make up for! The workbook is visually engaging and very fun to use, not to mention how well it reins in all the ideas vying to be used. It organizes everything nicely.
I highly recommend this to anyone who's looking to start a novel (or even a short story). It's a wonderful tool. I'll probably end up buying six more.
I recommend this to all writers, no matter where they are in their career.
Some sections were a little kitchy for my taste. For example, there is a coloring section which includes the busts of a few literary greats. The sentiment is cute, and many wil love the humor, not to mention the opportunity for coloring through writer's block, but I was pursuing 50,000 words in 30 days and wasn't aloowing myself to procrastinate. If you are competing in NaNoWriMo, I would say this is the tool for you, especially if you enjoy the humorous interludes.
