I just finished giving Martha's book: The Plot Whisperer: Secrets of Story Structure Any Writer Can Master a 5-star rating. I purchased the workbook also. Using them together has changed my writing. I have multiple writing books on my bookshelf, but these are on my desk. I always thought my favorite authors sat down to the blank page and wrote fantastic stories. I've been trying to fit that model for years and though I'm sure many writers succeed this way, I've realized my brain doesn't work like that. I stumbled upon Martha Alderson's YouTube videos on "Plotting a Novel, Memoir or Screenplay". Light bulbs started going off. I'm working on a novel now and can say for certain that I would not be where I am today without using the pre-plotting plan she outlines in the book and workbook.
