This book was more of a writer's block than a writing aid for me. It takes a dry, overly formulaic approach to a creative, sometimes spontaneous process. Writing a basic outline for a book is a great idea. But the Marshall Plan takes outlining to the extreme, demanding that you plan out every scene before you even begin writing. I agree with the paint-by-numbers analogy. The Plan doesn't give a writer room to breathe and wouldn't allow a story to evolve beyond the writer's original expectations. Most writers know that your first draft or concept will not be your last, but this Plan acts as if it will be. Can you write a novel with this plan? Probably. Will your novel be GOOD? Probably not.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
