Awaken The Writer Within

Like you, I've been through the ringer before. I've bought all those "write a hit book" books. I took the classes in school. Heck, I even went out and observed people just to learn how to write better dialogue.But guess what? All I ever got was a book that most publishers wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole!So, I'd go back to the drawing board. Struggling for hours and hours trying to "think up" the next great story. I tried all sorts of mental training exercises, imagining myself as the main character, and a whole host of other stuff I'm embarrassed by!I tried to follow those plot outline guides. You know the kind I'm talking about. Pick your character traits, now put your character in this situation. And so on.No matter what plan I followed or whose advice I took, my books always ended up rejected by publishers for their lack of originality, their lifelessness, and one publisher even called my book "Cookie Cutter!"When I wrote my best seller Cry Of The Panther, no one thought much of it, except me. Before I wrote "Cry", I studied hundreds of hit books, looking for what they had in common. I discovered that great writers, both past and present, had the "X" factor. They found a way to awaken the writer within and write books that appealed not only to their generation, but also to future generations.Grab A Copy Click here From Mark Twain to Charles Dickens, from William Shakespeare to Edgar Allen Poe.Each of these authors wrote with a human passion that millions of people could feel as they turned the next page.This is the passion I poured into Cry Of The Panther. The same passion that has produced hit books for J.K. Rowling, Stephen King, Michael Crichton, and others.
I could bore you with tedious outlines, character charts, and theme construction. But I know those don't work. What works is throwing logic out the window and tapping into that source inside you. You see, there were 99 reasons why Cry Of The Panther should have failed miserably, but there was 1 reason why it didn't.
