"Alan Watt's The 90-Day Novel is a treasure trove of insight, not only for beginners or aspiring writers but for grizzled old-timers like myself who can profit, always, from revisiting the fundamentals and first principles of the writer's calling. Two thumbs up!" --Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of The War of Art and Do The Work

"I went $64,000 in debt for my MFA in fiction writing. After reading The 90-Day Novel I wonder why. This book will provide you with the tools missing from most writing programs." --Frank B. Wilderson III (Winner, 2008 American Book Award)

''For years I have been fascinated by the industry legend of how Alan Watt wrote his masterful novel Diamond Dogs in 90 days. Now, at last, he shares his secrets. The 90-Day Novel is smart, insightful, thorough and wise. It's also one of the best books on novel-writing I have ever seen. I feel confident that anyone who takes this program seriously will have a solid manuscript to show for the effort.'' --David Liss, Edgar Award winner for his bestselling novel A Conspiracy of Paper

''The idea of bringing a first draft of a novel to fruition seemed too daunting and overwhelming to even consider until I applied the principles in The 90-day Novel. Al Watt's methodology is deep and precise, and helps unearth unconscious themes and characters in you that let the story almost tell itself.'' - Rebecca De Mornay(actress/writer)

Kurzbeschreibung

Alan Watt wrote the first draft of his novel Diamond Dogs in just under 90 days, and later sold the North American rights for $500,000 to Little, Brown in a bidding war. The book became a national bestseller, won a slew of awards and is soon to be a major motion picture.

Get the first draft down quickly! The 90-Day Novel is a day-by-day guide through the process of getting the first draft of your novel onto the page. The 90-Day Novel was workshopped at LA Writers' Lab over three years and has helped hundreds of writers complete their work. Some of his students have gone on to become bestselling authors and win major literary awards.

The 90-Day Novel is structured into three parts. Part One describes the process of getting your story from imagination to the page and prepares you, through a few simple, powerful writing exercises to access the story within. Part Two is The 90-Day Novel, a series of 90 daily letters that will guide you through the hero's journey. Writers often tend to get stuck halfway through, mired somewhere in their "idea" of the story. The 90-Day Novel will show you how and why you got stuck, and how to get to the end of your first draft. Part Three is a compendium of stream-of-consciousness writing exercises designed to help you access the primal forces in your story, as well as the Structure Questions that will invite up images at key stages in your hero's journey.

The 90-Day Novel teaches you how to distill your plot to its nature, and clarifies the mysterious process of assembling vague disparate images into a coherent narrative. Working in this way, story structure (which is often taught as a formula) becomes a springboard, setting you free to explore the far reaches of your imagination. "There are no rules," Watt tells us. "Stay out of your left brain, and let your unconscious do the heavy lifting." The 90-Day Novel clearly articulates the process of marrying the rigor of story structure to the wildness of the imagination, and in the process reminds us of something we so often forget...that writing is actually fun.
"For years I have been fascinated by the industry legend of how Alan Watt wrote his masterful novel, Diamond Dogs, in 90 days. Now, at last, he shares his secrets. The 90-Day Novel is smart, insightful, thorough and wise. It's also one of the best books on novel-writing I have ever seen. I feel confident that anyone who takes this program seriously will have a solid manuscript to show for the effort."
- David Liss (national bestselling author and Edgar Award winner of A Conspiracy of Paper)

"The idea of bringing a first draft of a novel to fruition seemed too daunting and overwhelming to even consider until I was introduced to The 90-Day Novel. Al's methodology is deep and precise and helps unearth subconscious themes and characters in you that let the story almost tell itself."
- Rebecca de Mornay (actress/writer)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Unique Method that Emphasizes Process -- and Action 11. Oktober 2010
Von An L.A. Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Can you write a novel in 90 days? Yes. And it will be a surprisingly good novel if you follow the precepts in Al Watt's method.

I was student of Al's in one of his well-known L.A. 90 day workshops. I came in with only a vague idea of what I wanted to accomplish. 90 days later I had a complete manuscript - one of the best stories I have written. Several of his students have gone on to publish work they produced using Al's method, which is fully laid out in this book.

Unlike other novel-writing books which concentrate on a mechanistic approach to structure, The 90-Day Novel puts its emphasis on getting -- and staying -- in touch with your story at the deepest subconscious level. Everything that's going on in your life becomes grist for the mill of the story. For the first 30 days, a series of exercises takes you through discovering (not creating) your character's wants and needs -- the wants and needs that propel him or her through an organically emerging story structure.

Gradually, you find your story coming into focus, with a beginning, middle and end seemingly emerging from nowhere. The excitement of these discoveries sustains the next 60 days of work -- where you bang out a first draft that puts texture on the bare bones of your character's journey.

Really unlike anything else out there. Al is an accomplished, award-winning novelist and screenwriter who has been through this process and knows how to coach you through your doubts and dilemmas.

Can't recommend enough.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A bit disappointed... 15. Juni 2011
Von G.C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book based on the overwhelmingly positive reviews. I have to say, based on what I expected, I'm a bit disappointed.

This book is great in terms of presenting some really thought-provoking ideas about writing a novel. I thought that the discussion of dilemma and conflict was interesting, and the overview of novel structure and structure questions were also very helpful.

However, as far as a guided workshop-in-a-book, I feel like this book failed. In his attempt to provide a tidbit of information each day, useful information was awkwardly broken up that might have been better organized into more solid chapters. The overall process felt a bit loosey-goosey, with constant reminders to "hold it all loosely" and not to lock yourself in. Honestly, I felt myself getting bored with the pre-writing exercises and just skipping around and reading the book to glean what useful tidbits I could, and coming up with my own process to complete my draft.

I also thought it was a bit strange that you're urged within the book to read Watt's novel, Diamond Dogs, which is used to illustrate many of the points made within this book. That along with the dozens of 5-star reviews from Amazon members without much in the way of a reviewer history leaves me feeling a bit taken.

2.0 von 5 Sternen The 90-minute read 13. April 2011
Von Amy Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I eagerly did the first few exercises in this book until it began to look like we weren't going to advance beyond elementary overcome-your-fear, flesh-out-your-characters kind of advice you get in every single one of these types of books. Then I just read the rest and didn't bother with the writing exercises. It was a fast read...because there isn't much here. Perhaps someone will gather all these exercises and write them in a few pages that will not use up more of your time than they are worth. I would happily pay more for books that are no longer than they need to be!

Two stars instead of one because the discussion of dilemma was actually useful. It should have been a blog article, not a book. You might get more out of this if you consider it a workbook for the author's class, if you are taking it. If you aren't taking it, you don't need this book.

Do yourself a favor and click the "read all my reviews" links for all the reviewers of this book before you accept the hype.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Al Watts book is the best instruction on the market right now 24. Oktober 2010
Von Enid Hawk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The process Al lays out in his 90 day approach will absolutely bring you to a finished first draft of a novel. If you have a story within- or bits and pieces of writings throughout several notebooks, Al's guidance will help you get the WHOLE story on the page. His process teaches you how to teach yourself. I highly recommend this book to every writer and will be buying several copies for the holidays. It is sure-fire sound guidance to help you get to the heart of your desire to write your story. And even better- after reading Al's book, if you have more questions or want more instruction, you can work with the author directly in the interactive group dynamic of the 90-Day Novel he offers in person and over the phone. He is a true mentor and teacher. Highly recommended reading for all writers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The method that ended my madness 5. November 2010
Von Jenna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a fantastic resource for anyone who wants to write a novel. I spent years laboring under what I thought my story was, and using this method, I wrote a first draft in only 90 days!

There is so much freedom in this method, but the book also teaches much about story structure. Most books on writing I've seen focus on either structure or freewriting - this book combines both, and beautifully.

I am told that he is working on a book called The 90-Day Rewrite also, so we will have additional tools at our disposal soon! I am looking forward to the release of that one!

I've spent a lot of money on books and workshops - thousands of dollars. This book and workshop helped me the most by far. I now know how to deal with my fears and write the book I was supposed to write without dealing with any needless grief.

The subtitle of this book is "Unlock the story within". Trust me, it ain't kidding. The lock doesn't even exist for me anymore.
