The Marshall Plan for Writing® – Evan S. Marshall

This review will be slightly different, as the product itself is different. The Marshall Plan for Writing® is a book, along with a companion software program. I’ll examine both as they function well together.

The Marshall Plan for Writing® by Evan S. Marshall covers a step by step process of writing fiction. It presents a 16 step process from picking the right novel for you, character creation, storyline, up to things such as editing, and finding an agent. It goes into multiple examples of how each step is applied in the writing process.

I found this book very informative. After reading through it, I found myself feeling that with enough research and thinking, I could probably put together a novel. The book seemed to contain almost everything I would be able to think of needing if I were to write a book.

For all the aspiring authors out there, I think this book would be an invaluable tool. If you’ve ever thought about that novel you have hidden within you, then pick up this book, and see where it leads.

The second aspect to this is the software. The software system that goes along with this is fairly user friendly. Each part of the program follows along the Marshall Plan with sections on characters, actions, etc. While the book itself is very good, the computer program used with the book allows you to take all the information and keep it in one area.

I found myself using this program from a running start. I do have a background in computers and in programming, so that may have given me a slight advantage, but I think if you could operate a word processor, you’d be able to use this software without any problems.
