Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook. Maass has the regular novel, but then he also has the Workbook: http://www.amazon.com/Writing-Breakout-Novel-Workbook-Donald/dp/158297263X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1314307518&sr=8-1
It’s larger than the regular book, and contains exercises. He explains the lesson and then gives you space to work on the exercise yourself. He gives you questions to fill out and answer (Amazon has the “look inside” feature if you want to see what I mean). That’s why I like it better. The book is good and all, but the workbook is a lot easier to immediately start using. I don’t write in the book itself, but I type my answers up on the computer.
Hope this helps! 😀
