Use a simple blueprint method to lay the foundation, and then complete the story. Beginning writers in the genre can learn to identify potential pitfalls. More complex concepts are included for intermediate to advance level authors.
The Essential Pre-Writing Workbook is designed to help you complete any book-in-a-month project. This workbook does not offer any writing advice or how-tos. A good grasp of writing basics (plotting, GMC and character arc), as well as a familiarity with the hero’s journey, is recommended.

It will also help you identify the challenges that keep you from being productive. In addition, it contains journaling pages & spaces, and places for doodling or mind mapping to help boost your creativity. This handy Journal/Planner is not year specific – start where you need to start- and it fits conveniently in laptop cases, purses, and briefcases.
