I love this book! Best tool for brainstorming that I've found. I've taken Ayala's on-line writing class twice and produced a book each time, and my favorite part of the class was always the daily questions. Now, I can do them on my own time and even more than one a day if I want to. I have learned so much more about my characters that I would have never thought to ask and I've even gotten a few extra scenes that were prompted by a question. It definitely enriches my work. Even if the answers aren't included in the story, my characters are more fleshed out in my mind, and I believe that comes through to the reader. Definitely recommend! This is a must for your writing arsenal!
