The Writing Game

There are a lot of tapes and books and CD and even videos out there that claim they teach you how to write, but how many actually offer a full 4 part course included in their manual. A course that is offered in London as part of a creative writing school?

This one does. And more importantly, it works. But if you are stuck in the box mind-set that it takes years and years of torture to produce that amazing book, then this is not for you and you should go back to talking about writing and getting a couple of sentences a week down on the computer when inspiration comes.

The following information is for people who think they don't have enough time to sit down and write. This is for those people who would love to write a book, fiction or non-fiction but never seem to get around to it. This is for the writers already out there that would love to find a way to write more in the time they have.

I'm going to let you in on a few secrets of this writing game. Secrets I learned from this same course. It took me three years to finally put this information into practice, and it was the best thing I have ever done.

You see it took me 3 years to write my first full-length book, Blood of the Wolf Last November I finally sat down and took full notice of this course. Why? Because I participated in a special writing program, called, NaNoWriMo. Write a novel of at least 50,000 words in one month - November to be exact. I'd never done that before. It meant I needed to plan ahead, think things through and work out the plotline and subplots (at least 3) before I even sat down to write. So I dusted off the old CD Course and whacked it into the computer. I followed the instructions and yes it was difficult at the time (first time is always the hardest) but it is like riding a bike, once you get your balance, you start to gain confidence and then you go faster and faster and faster. This course is like that.

I finished NaNoWriMo easily, within 3 weeks I had a fully edited and ready to re-write (yes, I still do that) 70,000 words book. Only needed 50,000 but I just had to finish it off. A bit of math for you math lovers out there, that's 3333.3333 words a day! I would have thought that was impossible while working a full time job, and running a part time business.

This course shows you what really goes beyond the fantasy of being a writer, and they show you how to do it easily.

They will show you "What to do and How to do it"

They will show you the secrets many writers, like Jack London, use to produce an amazing amount of writing by anyone's standards. Charles Dickens wrote his literary classic A Christmas Carol in just 2 weeks. Samuel Johnson wrote Rasselas: Prince of Abyssinia in an amazing 4 days. Barbara Cartland took only 5 days to write each of her books, resulting in an amazing 623 best sellers during her lifetime. The hit self-help book Don't Sweat the Small Stuff is still selling in its millions - and was written by Dr Richard Carlson during a 12-hour transatlantic flight. (Even the playwright and third best-selling novelist in the world, Agatha Christie, claimed to have written all her manuscripts in under a month. In a BBC interview, she said: "I find no reason why one month isn't adequate time to write a book".)

You won't be left thinking, "What comes next?" You'll know.

You will be lead step by step through the process of writing at an amazing speed, in only 5 minutes stints.

Ready to write? Ready to be let in on the secret? (and there IS a secret!)

I am living proof that this works. Remember a few paragraphs back, I mentioned NaNoWriMo? Yes? Great, you have been paying attention.

NaNoWriMo was in November 2003. Since that time, I have a new novel coming out in a few months, short stories are selling, I have a three chapbook series, each chapbook coming in at 17,000 words each (NOTE: The first one took 4 days. The second took a week and the third has yet to be written.) I have another novel in editing stage called, "The Game" and am writing my next book. All this since November 2003. And to think it used to take me ages to write a short story and 3 years to write my first novel, "Blood of the Wolf".

People say, "Prove it works, then I'll look into it." Sorry, I'm calling your bluff. And at only $49.95, this course is well worth it. You can be what you want to be when you've written and published your book. See my site: for "Proof".

Richard Lee is the author of the acclaimed novel, "Blood of the Wolf" and Re-Entry of Evil.

He was born in New Zealand on Black Friday during a thunderstorm. At the age of nine, unable to understand Social Studies, he was sent to the jungle gym to write a two-page short story within the one-hour time frame. His stories were always horror.

Richard created his own universe where his books are set. They are based around Opera Sands, bits and pieces of different towns he has lived in.

Richard created the "Cyclops" a war hungry breed of warriors from space in his first SF/Horror novella "Crossover".

Currently he is working on the next two novels - both set in Opera Sands. His favorite little town.

Reviewers have compared his writing to the late, great, Richard Laymon.

His next two titles will be The Game and Darkness. Previews will be posted on his site as they come available.
