I ordered two workbooks off Amazon a few months back. Structuring Your Novel Workbook (K.M Weiland) Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook (Donald Maas) Ok, seriously, I have read a TON of craft books, did my degree in English lit/creative writing, and have attended a ton of conferences and seminars. Nothing has come close to the practical, hands on resources provided in these two books. Yes, it is a ton of work upfront. But really, really valuable.
