For folks who love to plan their prose adventures, this is the greatest novel-prep workbook in history. I co-authored it with NaNoWriMo's Lindsey Grant and Tavia Stewart-Streit. It contains dozens of fun activities and exercises to help you figure out everything you need to know about your upcoming masterwork. It also features an award-winning coloring section in the back that lets you procrastinate on your planning by coloring Gustave Flaubert's mustache! Available at Powell's, Amazon, or autographed from the NaNoWriMo shop.
