Writing is hard, says the author. I suppose he makes it harder by inventing exercises that don't add up to a publishable story or book..? If you can't get ahead on your novel this week and want to do some writing exercises instead of entirely waste time, this is better than nothing. (But you'd be better off getting unlazy and working on the novel. Not every day on a novel is going to be sunshine and roses. Write anyway.) This is a lot like What If, a book sometimes used in undergrad creative writing programs.

Example exercise: put your two main characters in a wilderness. Forest, desert, foreign city where they don't speak the language Write a scene that will never go in the book.

If you like this sort of thing, you might like it. I don't, so I didn't.
