Writing Resource – Writing the Breakout Novel

For the next few weeks, I’ll be re-blogging some of my former posts having to do with writing resources. Donald Maass with his Writing the Breakout Novel book and workbook are excellent resources. I’d recommend the notebook over the book because you can write in it. But you might want to consider making photocopies of the worksheet pages to help you with your story. It’s a great resource.

Writing the Breakout Novel, by Donald Maas is another great resource for fiction writers. There is also a valuable workbook by the same name. I have used both in my training through CWG. Either resource could stand alone, because even though a lot of the material is the same, it’s not coordinated or formatted to correspond with each other. Example: Chapter One of the book is Why Write the Breakout Novel? Chapter One of the Workbook is on Character Development: From Protagonist to Hero.
