Writing a novel is so much easier if you do a little planning first. And thanks to the Step-by-Step Novel Planning Workbook, the process of planning your breakthrough novel has never been easier.
Using simple worksheets and instructions, the workbook guides you through the various stages of
... and doing it all in a way that is fun and creative.
The mission of How to Write a Book Now is to take the most sophisticated theories of story structure and literary technique and make them practical, easy to use, and fun (and by fun, we mean a way that harnesses every writer's natural creativity).
The Step-by-Step Novel Planning Workbook began as a set of worksheets and exercises developed for a series of creative writing courses taught by author Glen C. Strathy to both adults and teenagers at Queen's University and St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario. Drawing on his training in both Dramatica Story Theory and theatre arts, Glen designed these courses to help emerging writers take a quantum leap in their creativity, their writing skills, and their understanding of what makes great stories work.
The resulting workbook consists of 55 pages of worksheets and instructions that guide you through the complete process of novel planning. It will help you find and develop your story ideas, and make sure your novel has a solid, emotionally compelling structure -- before you even begin your first chapter.
Unlike other novel brainstorming systems, the Step-by-Step Novel Planning Workbook is built upon a solid base of story theory. The exercises are open-ended, giving you the creative freedom do design the story you want, while at the same time helping you create a solid story structure.

By the time you're finished, your story will be so well planned, the actual writing process will fly by. You'll never suffer from writer's block, because you'll always know what's about to happen and what your characters will discover around the next corner.
After a successful test run, the Step-by-Step Novel Planning Workbook has been revised to give all the worksheets additional visual appeal. Some worksheets have been expanded to better address writers' needs. Also, a new Story Braiding exercise has been added to help you merge multiple subplots and storylines into one overall (and quite thorough) outline for your novel.
The workbook comes in PDF format, so you can easily open it on any computer and print off copies of individual worksheets to write on and perhaps store in your writer's notebook.
Best of all, we have kept the price to just $5.00 (US).
