This book is amazing for anyone who just wants to get started on the writing process but doesn't want to have anyone impose their views on what you should and shouldn't write about or how you should and shouldn't go about the process. The book is filled with ways to get your process (whatever process works best for you) going. I read it some years ago and still use it today when I'm having troubles getting started. Couldn't recommend it enough.

Recommends it for: people who want to write fiction
Recommended to Diane by: text for online course I was checking out
This workbook has lots of simple exercises to guild beginning fiction writers through character development, plot development, theme etc. I've finished reading the core part of the book and it's helping me to jump in and explore plot. I'm losing my fear of sketching out the plot of stories and it's kind of fun.
