              You want to write a novel, finish it, edit it and publish it? Then you would like to do it all over again? That's a great goal. Many authors nowadays know that in order to make a living from your writing, you need to be consistently productive. Writing between one and four novels... a year is the new normal. This means you want to be able to rely on your creativity. You need to be ready to tackle the task and conjure the muse whenever you've got got time to write. What if you could do that using simple psychological rituals? Well, you can, but only if you understand the process of writing. It can take years to fully understand the creative writing process. Or you can find out what it is in the pages of this book and save yourself a lot of time and heartache. Let's face it, writing novels is as much about endurance as creativity. Over the last ten years of teaching, editing and wrestling with my own writing demons, I've discovered there is one vital mistake many authors make. They think the whole process involves one single mind state - creativity. Often called 'flow', it's where you sit down and the words pour out and then it's done. Not true. Creating a full length story requires several distinct approaches. I've identified five main stages in the process: Prewriting, freewriting, rewriting, publishing and nurturing. Having made every mistake a writer could make, I found out how to create the correct mind state for each stage. I developed a system of giving my brain simple commands to make sure I am in the right state for whatever part of the process I'm in. This made it easy to go from one stage of making a book to the other, without grinding to a halt or getting stuck in an endless loop. The human mind responds well to ritual and verbal commands. This book will help you to understand what each stage of novel writing actually is, and how to evoke the correct mind state for it. With practise, you'll be able to slip into the right state of mind with ease. You will lear

              Would you like to write a novel? Would you like clear instructions on the steps you need to develop your writing process and write a book? Writing a novel is a creative process which can become overwhelming. I've worked with many new writers over the years and the one thing they ...really want to know is not the 'what' but the 'how' of writing a novel. According to the Oxford dictionary, a blueprint is '. . . something which acts as a plan, model or template for others'. This does not downgrade the importance of art when it comes to storytelling. The art of novelising is your voice. For those of you worried that using a blueprint might dampen your creative spirit, put that thought away. A blueprint is just a framework. Used correctly, it will support and strengthen your story. You get to decorate it however you like. This book is for you if you want to write your first novel and need to know the basics of the craft. And if you're halfway through your manuscript and freaking out because your story has become an uncontrollable monster baby. Also, if you've written a few novels but are looking to refine your writing process. This book is not for you if you know everything there is to know about writing a novel and have no time for learning anything new on the subject! Remember, whatever anyone tells you, we need more storytellers in the world. I hope this book helps you to achieve your novel writing goals. I wrote it because I really needed this book when I started out and it wasn't there.
