Title: Write Any Book in under 28 Days -- Nick Daws - Comments Welcome
Post by: Lin on March 11, 2006, 05:36:08 AM
"Write Any Book in Under 28 Days" is actually supplied on CD rather than as an instant download. The course takes you through every stage of writing a book, from coming up with an idea to marketing the finished manuscript. At its heart is my unique five-step method for outlining and blueprinting your book, which aims to fulfil the promise of getting the whole book written in 28 days or less. More info at http://www.writequickly.com/

"Quick Cash Writing" is the companion course to the above, and it is available as an instant download. It covers a wide range of shorter writing projects, from fillers and readers' letters to articles and short stories. It also covers more unusual outlets, such as producing contest slogans, greeting cards, and even ideas for TV shows and movies! More info at http://www.quickcashwriting.com/

You can find many testimonials for Nick's book at http://www.writequickly.com/author/testimonials.aspx

They're all totally genuine and many are by members who subsequently joined this forum, or authors who have already been published many times.

I obtained this course with additional print out a couple of years ago.
I read through the print out once, took in some useful advice, then lost it
I feel sure that I loaned it to someone but can't remember who. I've turned my study over but have never found it. Now I really need it!
Keep meaning to load the CD but haven't got around to it and much prefer working from a printed source. Anyone have a spare one that they have finished with?

I bought the Quick Cash Writing and was inspired by it. Though I already had a career behind me in senior positions in the media and am, touch wood, very busy, I was really impressed by the scope of information included, specifically on overseas markets etc. I'd happily recommend it to anyone. There is so much rubbish written that is supposed to inform and educate would-be writers that it was great to actually see some sound advice from someone who had made a genuine success of a writing career. :)

Hi to all from Athens Greece,
The weather has been great for the last two days.
I bought the course maybe three months ago now, and although it is not in my native language Greek, I still found it very useful and practical, particularly as I have a very busy schedule.
I wish we had some greek courses like that, for new writers, but we don't
I have now subscribed to the quick cash mini course and I shall revert when I had a look through it.

Crazy thought.... Would you be considering Nick and the others that it will be good for the course or courses to be translated and marketed to non english speaking markets????

Finished the course last evening. Excellent idea ie the way one should proceed with writing a book. Most suited to non-fiction. Wish it were either Mac compatible or on PDF format and not so UK/US-specific in the examples used for illustration.
Also wish he had reviewed some writing softwares in the end.

I have ordered the course - it arrived, and unfortunately was the wrong one (which didn't work anyway). That said, the suppliers were full of apologies and quick to promise another cd.

Anyway, it's my plan to follow this  course to the letter and see if its possible -and I'm sure it is.

I have the premise. I have the idea. I even have some key scenes mapped out in my mind...so - I want to use the course to get all this out and see.

I'll try to keep a diary here of how it all goes.

cheers

I have the electronic version of the course but is there any way to get a print copy.  It has been a while since I went through the course and I never implemented any of the techniques.  I am wanting to go through it again but it is so hard to sit at the computer and read it and not be able to make notes on it or anything.  I don't remember seeing an option for that and it is impossible to print from the computer.  It goes all weird and prints the color with it using a lot of ink so I stopped after the first couple pages.

I too prefer good old paper to a screen.

If I remember correctly, I used 'Control + P' to print

But you will have to print one page at a time.

Another thing, the Right margin gets a bit 'eaten' out:)

I go the CD copy and went through it about half way - but let life get in the way.  Then my PC crashed and I have the CD but can't load it on without a code (need to sort).  I found that it was all good advice, and the method certainly workable, but my own style wanted to run away and write before doing everything recommended - so though I think the course is excellent, it will work best for those who have a writing and working style that match the process in the programme. 

I've actually made more progress in my writing through this site, which is interesting.  I'm a 'team player' and I guess they don't make great 'lonely authors'....

I'm half way through the course, and just getting started on mapping my plot. I've done the exercises thus far, and they seem to work as promised.

One person did note earlier on that it's more suited to non-fiction than fiction, and I'd tend to agree with that assessment on what i've done so far.

It's an intriguing idea, and I'd guess that you can do what it says on the tin, though I think a fiction work would take longer. Then again, I've not tried writing the "Nick Daws way" before, and its a new approach. Practice makes perfect, I imagine.

Copied from the forum a message from Al Hughes - not written by me Lin


Hi SRNDPTY66

I've been aware of this site for awhile but haven't spent much time here yet. I do want to mention that I purchased Nick Dawes writing course and it tells you how to go about writing a screenplay pretty much step-by-step. If you want valuable info at a tenth of the price other so-called 'writing experts' are selling, go to Nick's website first. I spent $300 for a program that is nearly word for word as far as instruction and Nick's program was just as good if not a bit better.

Here's the URL for NIck's 'Write Anything in 28 Days or Less' course,  if you are at all interested.  http://www.writequickly.com/author/menu.aspx

Once again, nice to meet you, electronically speaking.

I am anxious to find out...

I ordered the CD 8 days ago and received it today.
Installed the CD and program - registered with my email and then received an error.
Contacted support and they said they would contact me in 2 days.

So far (without reading the course) I am not very impressed.  :-\
I really hope that changes because I truly want to utilize his ideas to get me started in writing.

Sorry for the negative review (so far), but just a little frustrated.  ???
I will try to remember to update this post when I actually get to try the course.

By far the best writing-related investment I've every made and I daresay ever will make!  Nick's approach put me 7-8 months ahead of where I'd be had I not invested the money and time.  It's critical at this point because I'm starting back to work 32 hours per week after being temporarily retired due to downsizing since 2/1/2005.  If I didn't have Nick's course, I'd still be designing my book instead of closing in on finishing the first draft.

I bought the Quick Cash Writing course, too, and am not certain that I like it very much.
The ideas are sound, except that I could skip the readers letter section for a start, because I can't think of any magazin in my country that actually pays for readers letters. And spending lots of postage on stamps to overseas magazines (which I would have to BUY first) doesn't seem very sensible to me either.
The sections on fillers and and greeting cards are probably better in my country, but still... after working my way through the module of fillers, I suffered from writer's block like I've never done before.  :'( It's probably just not my niche.
Once I decided to put the course aside and concentrate on writing prose again, my writer's block was gone.
It's still a pity though.

I have the printed and audio version of the "Write Any Book in under 28 Days."  It was very useful information.  I read the printed version while listening to the CD because I found that if I didn't read the words while listening, my mind would wander and I wouldn't really listen.  Also, I found it odd that the printed version contained more information than the CD version so I would definately recommend the printed version.  My package also came with the Writer's Block CD which is basically a bunch of noise.  I guess it's supposed to relax you or something but I found it was just annoying and made it even harder to concentrate.

Ok Lin.....
It is now all your fault......Thanks for beating the bush and flushing me out...
I was just at a Financial Planning meeting with hubby last Friday and was asked about my specific goals. I mentioned that I wanted to be published within two years (a collection of short stories). But- I think I'll move that goal backwards soon. I have lots of ideas that could need a bit of creative direction.
SOOOOOO.....I just ordered the CD and look forward to receiving it.
I expect to be famous soon.  LOL ::).

I see a couple of people have mentioned that the course is targeted more at the writer of non-fiction than fiction, though I also note there is a section on writing a screenplay. I'd be interested in hearing Nick's view on this observation. I, too, am a novelist-in-progress and am wondering if there would be enough in the course that I could use.

I'd be interested in hearing Nick's view on this observation. I, too, am a novelist-in-progress and am wondering if there would be enough in the course that I could use.

The course does have an entire section devoted to fiction writing. It's true that the description of my five-step method uses a non-fiction book as an example, but the method can easily be adapted to fiction as well, and the course includes information about this. Many buyers have used my five-step method to help write novels. Just take a look through the many testimonials (all unsolicited) on the following page of my publisher's sales site: http://tinyurl.com/bvtjk

I would like to emphasize that the course includes a lot more than just the five-step method, though. It covers everything from coming up with ideas and titles, through writing and editing your book, to publishing and self-publishing it. The course is crammed with hints and tips from my experience as the author of over 40 full-length books. Many of these tips, as far as I am aware, have never been seen in print before.

Hope that's some help anyway!

I have Nick's ,"write any book in 28 days," and also the "quick Cash" course. I have found them both invaluable. As a first time writer I really had no idea how to construct a book but with Nick's help I have finished the first draft of a complete book. I also used his tips on writing letters and fillers, etc and have had some success in this area too. One with the Reader's Digest, which is difficult to get into but very financially rewarding.

 I can honestly say I would never have progressed so quickly without the help of these courses.

Keep it up Nick.

I bought Nick's Write Any Book course about 2 years ago and absolutely loved it.  My first manuscript is now with my agent who, when she first read it emailed back and said "This is an amazing manuscript. The characters are fabulous, as is the plot. I am impressed with your imagination and storytelling ability. The readers will love this material."
(I just hope a publisher feels the same)

I read the comments that said the couse was more suited to non-fiction but my book is fiction - and HORROR fiction at that.

I'm now working on another manuscript using the course again, only this is a non-fiction book this time.

I also own the Quick Cash Writing Course and have used that several times to get me off my butt (although not literally because I have to get ON my butt to write, but you know what I mean) and gets me focused and writing staight away and I've earned hundreds of from using that course.

So as you can see, all my comments on these courses are completely positive.  ;D

I hope this posting is of use for anyone thinking about buying Nick's courses.

Re: BTW Horror writing.

There are lots of books on Amazon about how to write horror novels.  I just use my own warped imagination.

Are you writing a horror novel?  Have you used Nick's course to write it?  Has anyone else used the course to write a fiction book?
Title: Re: Write Any Book in under 28 Days -- Nick Daws - Comments Welcome
Post by: noelgama on January 09, 2007, 03:48:24 AM
No, Ruth. I am not writing a horror novel but believe it or not, a male at 49, I have just begun AWAI's Romance Writing course! If AWAI had a horror writing course, I would have opted for that over Romance. I just love horror - movies and books and I hero-worship Stephen King:)

I live in rural India (an ex-Portuguese colony) where horror and real life are almost the same. Witch craft is still practiced a lot for revenge, for wealth, for detection work, for keeping a boyfriend from wandering off, you name it! And all religions (including the Roman Catholics) have their brand of witch craft. Catholic girls who cross the marrying age of 26, are known to hang the statutues of St. Anthony down deep wells till they get men to marry them!!

My father, an 86-year old dental surgeon (still practicing) and a small-game hunter, came across a so-called witch in a forest at midnight. To him, her glowing eyes were just 'glaucoma' but not to me...

No, I don't think I can use Nick's method for fiction - not because of the method but because fiction seems too daunting a task for me. I write only non fiction (and I fictionalize it a lot:) and always use Nick's method because its the best I have read so far and I have read a lot! What I like best about his method is that you don't have to start researching like mad. And I don't particularly enjoy researching:( I'd rather pay someone to research my topic and then write it in my style. Another thing that appeals to me (or would appeal to any manager) is that he stresses on organizing the project - then you know where you are heading and once you know that, you'll not only get there, but you'll save time.

I have a copy of NewNovelist for fiction but I use it for learning about fiction-writing. When the time comes to write - you guessed it - my great romance novel, I'll probably buy a copy of WritePro. Wish I could create a niche at a spot where historical romance set in the Indo Portuguese era 400 years back, intersects with horror!

Title: Re: Write Any Book in under 28 Days -- Nick Daws - Comments Welcome
Post by: Smart on January 09, 2007, 06:40:01 AM
Thanks for your input, Ruth. Very encouraging to hear. And it's great to hear you are doing so well.

As it happens I am a pretty accomplished writer already, having worked in the ad business for 25+ years and been working on various novels on and off for almost as long. I've certainly learned the hard way, but I now write confidently and am sure that publication isn't far away. In fact, having set aside the Xmas holiday to motor ahead with the last draft of my novel, i am delighted to say that I have make phenomenal progress and envisage a finished final final!! MS within weeks.

As I hit my stride so easily, I decided against buying Nick's course just yet. It might actually work against me at the moment. That said, I am keen to branch into journalism and earning supplemmentary income from writing (I'm bored with advertising these days) and I can see it could have some additional uses for me in due course, so I'm sure I'll come back to it before long.
Title: Re: Write Any Book in under 28 Days -- Nick Daws - Comments Welcome
Post by: SheWritesRight on January 09, 2007, 04:52:17 PM
Glad I could be of help.

You sound like an incredibly busy writing person, but like me, you probably put of your writing for years and years to do "more important things".  I'm 45 and I'm kicking myself that I let so many years go by, even though I've always loved writing, with my priiorities so screwed up.

I think it was only seeing Nick's Write Any Book course advertised that prompted me to seriously sit down and write a book.  I was never quite sure where to start but I followed the course and it worked.  At first the outlining, writing questions and doing the blueprint seemed like an unusual way to work, but it was better than my usual way of sitting with a blank pad, writng "Chapter 1" and then not knowing where to go from there.

His other course, Quick Cash Writing, was also easy to follow and although I've made a lot of money from doing it, it also made me realise that writing books is what I really want to do, although I still doing smaller project to suppliment my income along the way to being "Ruth Barringham, award-winning novelist".

Well... they say that if you plan a goal then aim high because if you aim low, that's where you'll probably end up because that's where you were trying to be.

I hope you have great success with your book (books).  Just make sure you aim high.
Title: Re: Write Any Book in under 28 Days -- Nick Daws - Comments Welcome
Post by: Smart on January 09, 2007, 06:06:50 PM
Aiming high is good advice. I've already worked out a contingency plan for what i will do if the advance for my first novel is a) modest or b) huge. Of course it might be c) somewhere in betweeen, but there is no question in my mind that there might not be an advance.

It's great to hear you have been able to make money from your writing. This is where I have fallen down in the past when experimenting with non-fiction aside from ad copy. I alway felt I needed help to make it work, yet I wasn't able to find it. Now, perhaps I have.

I'm also getting on in years, at 48, and it's frustratiing to know you have a talent that hasn't yet reaped its rewards. But just recently I have started to feel that my time has well and truly come.

I switched careers three and a half years ago to become an EFL teacher. I love the work and the flexibility it gives me to write but it doesn't pay at all well. So anything that can help me earn cash from my writing is well worth exploring.

Then again, if that advance is huge, maybe I'll have to review my options   ;)
Title: Re: Write Any Book in under 28 Days -- Nick Daws - Comments Welcome
Post by: SheWritesRight on January 10, 2007, 02:36:51 AM
Of course the advance will be high!  Just keep thinking positively and I'm sure good things will come.

But Nick's Quick Cash Writing course in truly a good way to suppliment writing income during our "Blockbuster Novel Waiting Years".  When I did it I didn't do everything because not all of it was really "my bag" so I just passed over things that didn't really interest me like slogan writing and greeting card verse although I did come up with one that made me laugh - "I was going to buy you a card that was a little bit naughty, But I thought you're too old now you're 40".  But then again, maybe that's why I skipped the greeting card writing.

But the rest of it was really good that I did and I found I was submitting several things a week and once the cheques started coming in, I was hooked.

But then editors started asking me to write other articles, etc and so I stopped doing the course even though I had a note book bulging with other ideas that I'd though up along the way - but sadly I've never gotten back to it, and it was such fun just writing what I wanted instead of what I was paid to write.  But I shouldn't complain about getting work.  I was going to add that it's what I work for, but that doesn't make sense, but you know what I mean.

My husband said to me a few years ago, "For goodness sake Ruth," (because I was complaining about not having enough time to write.) "If you want to write then just do it. Forget everything else that you think you SHOULD be doing and get your writing done."  He is such a supportive man.  So I did and I've never looked back.

Now let's just watch this space and see how soon our books explode onto the market. I'll keep my eyes and ears open for yours.

I have spent hours reading through the many topics and threads within this Forum and have been well pleased to come across this one, albeit it a little late. Being someone who is dubious about all the letters of recommendation on a sales orientated websites, coming here and reading all the posting on this thread, especially those of Ruth, has been a pleasure. I am now seriously considering the course material promoted. I had read of Nick's "Write Any Book in under 28 Days" on another forum previous to coming  here yet was not convinced. Thank You.
May I go a little off-topic of the thread and enquire as to whether any Members here have purchased and are using the screenwriting material Nick promotes on his blog ?  Send a PM if this isnt the place to discuss this, or please re-direct me to a better place for this topic.

Hi Bryan

I'm glad my comments were of help.  I can't recommend Nick's two courses highly enough because they've really helped me alot.  I haven't tried the script writing course but I think that if you're interested in it then I'd say buy it because it's by the same publishers, it comes with a money back guarantee and after doing the two courses I've already bought, I'd say it's a pretty good guess that the script writing course is just as good.  And you've got nothing to lose.   Nothing vetured nothing gained.

If I wanted to do scrilpt writing I would definately buy this course.

Post by: McWawa on January 28, 2007, 05:36:08 PM
Thank You for Your reply Ruth,
What gave Your comments the greatest creedence was, in my opinion, the fact You didn't direct me to an affilaite website. Did You study copywrite at sometime or are You a born natural ?   :)
 I seem to  have read a ton of copywrite material promoting copywrite courses, written  by students of the course now on an affiliate program wishing  to make money selling the course. This made me very skeptical of internet promoted writing courses. I am of the impression sometimes that there is  more money to be made writing " How to.." and selling it than in the actual doing.
You have overcome my skepticism in this case. Thank You Ruth.

Aw, shucks, Bryan,

Thanks. 

I hate to burst your bubble, but I do actually sell all 3 courses through my web site, AND I'm one of those awful affiliates that you hate.  But just so you don't think I'm all bad, on my site I only personally recommend the 2 courses of Nick's that I've used myself.  The script writing course I just plain old advertise because I don't know much about it but as I said, I figured that because the other two were good, then I have faith in this one too.

I hope I haven't discouraged you from trying the script writing course - and if you don't buy it through my website, I promise I won't hold it against you.

Thank You Ruth, and please dont get me wrong; I really do not hate affialte websites, they are a very good source of income for writers and website owners. Some copywrite though is too overt and one tires of reading the same ploys to direct me to sign  up. Copied copywrite etc..
 I was impressed that You didn't refer me to a  website and I am sure that Your experience of this Course and it's benefits to You very genuine. If/when i purchase I will use any link from Your site, because Your advice has been helpful. Kindest Regards. (sorry if my diction is not to good tonight, I'm exhausted)

Aloha all,
       
 If you don't know what that means well I'm living in Maui Hawaii, And it means hello or goodbye..but mostly hello. Any-who  I bought Nicks 28 days to bliss. It mostly stated what I already knew from reading and not doing. But it did put into outline what I should be doing to write a book. So, yeah, its worth the bucks. I bought another program writeitnow. which helps even more. Nicks only downfall in his course that I can see is for fiction writers. Damn we actually have to think of what to write. However that out of the way, with the help of the two I'm on my way. I have gotten one of my short stories published and paid for (thank you with a bow) before I started this course. Now outlining 20 to 32 chapters is not easy. But I go on its a yank type of thing. I have outlined my characters bio's...funny Nick gave me the idea of the main character in my mystery ....it's character that writes HOW to books but never really has done anything...I don't mean this badly..what I mean is Nick said he wrote a how to book on touring different parts of Europe and yet had never been there. I thought this would be a great mystery solver all this information yet has never done anything...so I gave him a woman that would push him...new idea there e?... to solve before he became a victim. Oh well thought it would be fun to blurb this out....and if feathers are ruffled turn them into a quill and write.
Aloha DW

  Firstly let me point out that I have no connection with Nick Dawes other than as a very satisfied customer.

  I must admit, I thought i knew a lot about writing but this course has blown me away. 

  The freewriting for example. All of a sudden my writing goes from what I would describe as 'good,' to, 'hey, this is more than good, it's saleable.' 

Easy to read.  No waffle.  Nick tellls it how it is.  I skimmed through it in a couple of hours. It is so easy to read and digest.  Then I re-read it again and started on the tasks in module 1.  The result turned what was a fairly ordinary scene about three teenage couples into a piece of work i am proud of.  Check it out on Review my work.  'Sin in My Name.'  Thai is not the final draft but it is getting there.

Every one of Nick's tips is working for me.  I write faster.  I edit with a keener eye 

By the way Nick.  Is  it OK if I send you a couple of chapters for review?  :)  That's one of the tips he gives.  but I don't want to betray too many of his secrets.

At present I am working on my new site for crime writers.  cri-fi.com.  The Nick Dawes writing course will have pride of place on the site when it is up and running

All I can say is 'Buy this course.'   At less than the price of a decent meal, it will be the best twenty or so pounds you will ever spend. I've even turned my hand to copywriting for this post :) 

Seriously though.  This course is brilliant.   Thanks for a great product Nick.

Feel free to use this if you like.

John

My CD arrived this morning.

I claim to be a writer  :-[ and promote the course to my clients so I thought I had better take a look for myself.

If it is of interest I shall post here periodically and let you know how I get on with the CD.............if it can get me writing for myself rather than just fulfilling client assignments I shall be a happy bunny!

I brought this course just over a week ago and have now finished my 'blueprint.'  I can't believe how much this has helped my visualise my overal work.  Whilst it is true, this software is not aimed at fiction writers the basic principal can be used to fully plan out a work.  For me this has meant I don't have to go back and re-write things I had missed from my chapters.  Blueprinting did give me a real headache at times.  But its well worth it,

I loved this course because it made me start writing and then kept me going. Unlike some who found it unhelpful for fiction, I didn't have a problem, even though I was writing a fiction book (which is now finished and published). I've even started using it on my next brilliant work of fiction.

I know the outlining and blueprinting can seem a bit teadious, but it did keep me writing and working which to me is important. I love to have direction in what I'm doing.

And when the course was finished - Ta Da! I had the first draft of my novel in my hands. It was a great feeling.

This course was also much cheaper than most of the others (less than $50 verses several hundred $$$). A true bargain.

As you can probably tell from all my postings on this topic, I am a real fan of this course.

Hi everyone,

I went online on saturday night to look for courses on speedwriting, to help when I'm making notes for my plots.  After around half an hour or so of searching for something useful, I was directed to the course "Write Any Book in Under 28 Days".

It wasn't what I was looking for at the time as I already have several books on "how" to write and the like, but after checking it out I decided to purchase it online and as a result I'm eagerly awaiting the postman!!!  Also, it was purchasing this product which lead me to the Writer's Circle here, so I've already benefitted before I've received it :-)

Now that I've just read the comments here reviewing the course, I'm even more excited about it's arrival as I've been an avid, unpublished writer of fiction since the age of 13 (yes I know that's a long time  ;D).  Just being a member of this site is already giving me the confidence I need to have more faith in myself and my ideas, so the course has already paid for itself and I've not even laid eyes on it yet.

I'll let you know how I get on with it.

Regards
Teresa
