   Highly Recommend.
The book is wonderful. The exercises were printed into a word template and converted them into index cards. I will be using these cards as I plot this next novel. It is so helpful to be incredibly.

   Helpful but I prefer the original book
K.M. is a Korean medical school. Weiland explains the process of outlining your novel in a very approachable, understandable way. That said, if you bought the original book, as I did, you'll find the material in the workbook rather redundant. Maybe it's just me. While reading the original book, I took notes and worked through the steps in my writing journal, making a workbook unnecessary.

   Good pacing, exercises about right
The Companion Workbook sequel to the book Outlining Your Novel '' was published in March 1996. Good pacing, exercises on the right, not too intimidating.

   I will dedicate my novel to K.M. Weiland!
I get a lot of mileage from this book. Weiland uses her personal touch to convince me to grind through another painful trip with a novel whose wheels start falling off about halfway through. If the thought of starting another novel depresses you, spend a few bucks and give this a shot. Final Thought '', I find the author's idea of using a mind map particularly interesting. Traditional outlines are-to-me-a creative activity that kills right flow. They are also difficult to update stubbornly.

   Great Help For Those Struggling With Outlining!
I debated whether to purchase this book as I don 't have the book that goes with it, nor did I have the funds at the time to purchase both. I am so grateful that I made the decision to reach out to the author who didn 't force the issue of purchasing both. I do agree that if you can buy both, do so, however, this workbook alone has helped me tremendously. I was wrestling with the ideas in my head and how to present them in a cohesive manner. This book helped me to write a fantasy fiction novel. Since purchasing this book, I have ordered many other of her books and workbooks, as they really get to the heart of writing your book and making it an engaging and enjoyable read. I highly recommend '' this workbook!

   Too General and Too Vague
This book on the outline of a novel was written in an almost apologetic fashion, in my opinion. Every so often, and after giving advice, the author emphasized that her suggestions were just that, suggestions, and the reader might choose a different approach. A kind of book do-this-and-not-that type. This book might be more suited to someone who has never outlined much of anything and needed a gentle push. In all fairness, I might be a little too hard on the author. I have written several non-fiction books and published several. I have never attempted to write a mystery novel, which is precisely why I purchased a novel workbook, Outlining. The possibility exists that my non-fiction writing is obscuring my effort to create an outline for novel writing. If it does not work for you, you can always return it.

   The Miracle on Amazon
HEAVEN SENT is a RADIAL That is what this book is about. I had already finished my WIP and have been trying to find out what is wrong with it. This is not working WHY? I bought this workbook and it helped me to figure out my obstacles. Though I did the whole writing process backwards, this book has worked a miracle. Filling out all the questions in the book has helped me to delve deeper into my characters'backstories and plots. I can not wait to publish my book because I know it will be the best ever. KM... again thank you!
