The Nighttime Novelist...accomplishes more in about 240 pages than a dozen other "how to write" or "craft your novel" books have ever done.

I'm very happy to offer some of the worksheets and exercises from The Nighttime Novelist here for download. My great thanks to Terri Woesner for making these happen, as well as for the beautiful book design.

These might be useful in the creative writing classroom as well as for personal use. And, printed and laminated, they might make awkward gifts. (I've tried to select worksheets that make sense on their own.)

Right-click and save.

Worksheet: POV and Voice

Worksheet: Finding Your Voice

Worksheet: Crafting Dialogue

Worksheet: Crafting a Setting

Worksheet: Major and Minor Settings

The following link includes all worksheets from the book, and will probably only make sense to those who've purchased it (and perhaps not even then).
