As an author, I’m always on the lookout for books on the writing process. Plan Your Novel Like A Pro is a great resource.
My Review of Plan Your Novel Like A Pro
This is a very detailed book designed to get the would-be writer to plot a novel over a course of four weeks. The book is divided into four sections with each one focusing on a particular aspect of the plot.
Plan Your Novel Like A Pro is good for plotters who like to know every detail of their plot before they start writing. Pantsers may be a bit intimidated by the amount of work required upfront (I know I was) but will still find it a helpful resource to jumpstart them when they are stuck or in the rewriting/editing process.
What I liked most about Plan Your Novel Like A Pro was how the authors managed to break everything down to a series of questions. Questions can be answered, all you have to do is focus on one of them at a time.
I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publishers through NetGalley; a positive review was not required. Get your copy of Plan Your Novel Like A Pro.
