This is a true novel-building workbook: you write descriptions directly into the book in response to his questions. It is a great adjunct to the book 'Writing the Breakout Novel.' The workbook helped me explore my characters, setting, plot, etc. in a way that would not have otherwise occurred to me. I'm getting good responses from the readers who are reading my novel and I just ordered a new workbook for my second novel.
