A Very Helpful Book by a Wonderful Teacher

I loved this workbook. I had the great fortune to hear him speak at a conference. This workbook was recommended to me by another writer. I devoured it, as I am in the process of what I hope is the last draft of my book about the Civil War. Donald Maass is an incredible teacher. I’ve read many how-to writing books, but only one has ever come close to the helpfulness of this one. I am very glad I purchased it and recommend it to any writer, new to the game or not. I’ve written five books, and this one taught me a lot. A great book!

It is the breakout novel workbook. I read many books on craft of writing, some books giving tips and exercises for writers to do which I almost never did before because they were BORING.

If you’re a novelist you NEED this book!

If you’re a fiction author you pretty much NEED this workbook when you’ve finished your first draft. I’ve used it for 9 of my novels, and the process won me a Christy award and more contracts. Be prepared to work your tail off. Be prepared for it to be worth it. Nancy Rue

WRITING THE BREAKOUT NOVEL WORKBOOK, by DONALD MAASS, hands down, is one of the best books I’ve read on the craft of writing. Easy to read, with great examples and worksheets.

When I first began working through this workbook, I did not heed Donald’s first suggestion. It was not long before I realised that were I to succeed, as was his intention, I needed to read his book, ‘Writing the Breakout Novel’- FIRST.

This book makes you work. I actually ordered the workbook quickly by mistake – I had meant to get “Writing the Breakout Novel” but this worked out better. Going chapter by chapter as I had time, I was glad to be able to scribble my responses and then go back and finish working on my own book, which is now done. I gave this book to my father so he could use it as well to help organize his thoughts on his own book. It’s a real plus.
