You are NOT ALONE. Most people who try and write a novel give up or fail miserably.

If you need help writing your novel, you need look no further.

  • This is how you can do it:Forget about being a critic. You are a craftsman and you need to read your work as words and sentences on a page. Ask yourself these questions:  1.Does it make sense?2.Is what I am trying to say clear and to the point?

  • To be a writer you have to write, not sit around reading books about how to do it.

  • To save our novel we’ll have to construct the Act One Climax, also known as the Lock-In, and the Point of No Return. It occurs at the end of Act 1. Once it takes effect, the protagonist is committed to taking action and cannot back down.

  • I suggest you create a main character (or characters) you can write a series of novels about. This will save you having to keep coming up with new characters and situations all the time. Plus, it’ll help you sell more books.

  • Writing a novel is like approaching a series of junctions and you have to choose the way to go. Usually it’s best to choose the most difficult route from your protagonist’s point of view.

First Things First

I’m going to show you how to write a novel using my Pulp Fiction Method. It’s a system I developed to help me write quality novels in as short a time as possible.

Like the pulp writers of the Golden Age (roughly 1910-1960), the modern author needs to write quickly and without distraction.

Since the first version of this book appeared in 2014, the way I work has evolved. This new edition reflects those improvements and includes a mountain of new material, including a whole new chapter on The Golden Age of Pulp Fiction.

I’m a big fan of Pulp Fiction. Not just the Tarantino movie, but all those great magazine stories and paperback novels that appeared in the first half of the 20th century. Raymond Chandler, Dashiel Hammett, Louis L’Amour, Isaac Asimov, John D MacDonald, Jim Thompson, James M Cain, F Scott Fitzgerald, Edgar Wallace, and many others, all got their start writing cheap fiction to order.

Pulp novels were often cleverly plotted and sometimes remarkably well-written. Quite a few were adapted into great movies, including The Killer Inside Me, The Grifters, The Postman Always Rings Twice, and Mildred Pierce. They weren’t all masterpieces by any means, but thousands were written and millions of readers enjoyed them.

Authors of pulp novels were paid by the word. They had to produce great stories in as short a time as possible. They didn’t have word processors or computers to write on, every word had to be hand-written or battered out on a manual typewriter.

If they made a mistake, they had to rip out the paper and start again. As a result, pulp writers learned techniques that allowed them to write fast and furiously, without making costly mistakes. They didn’t have time for writers’ block or self-doubt. If they didn’t write, they didn’t eat.

I’m going to show you methods that work. My advice will enable you to write your novel quickly and easily.

This is a short book: a smidgeon under 20,000 words. I’m working on the assumption that you need useful information, not waffle. To be a writer you’ve got to write, not sit around reading books about it.

I’m not going to try and reinvent the wheel and tell you exactly how to tackle every single stage of the writing process. I’m going to give you the basics, plus lots of useful tips, and tell you where to find out more, should you need it.

If you were looking for a great big how to do everything kind of book, stop reading now and go get a refund. If you genuinely want to write a novel and start selling on digital platforms like iBooks and Kindle, carry on reading…

You Are Already A Writer

Have you ever written an email or a school essay? Assuming you have, you are already a writer. Going on to write a novel is simply a matter of scaling up.

Writing novels is really not as difficult as you think. I’ve written several myself, though none (so far) under my own name. I’ve ghostwritten seven novels and the other twelve (so far) have been published under pseudonyms.

You can definitely write a novel. All you need is someone to tell you how to do it as simply as possible. That’s where I come in. But first, it’s time for some home truths.

You Are A Terrible Writer

You may be a writer but the bad news is that you are almost certainly a dreadful writer. The good news is practically everyone is; at least, to start with.

Do you suppose the first time the great English cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779) picked up a chunk of wood, he was able to create an intricately inlaid cabinet like the one above? Not a chance. Just like everyone else, he began as a raw amateur and he practiced until he got better.

Chippendale could have wasted years reading books on how to make cabinets and bemoaning the fact he wasn’t as good as he thought he needed to be. Luckily, he didn’t. He learned the basic skills and threw himself into the task. In the end, all his efforts paid off.

What is it about writing that makes new authors despair when they can’t write a literary masterpiece at their first attempt? No other job has similar expectations. You don’t become a plumber and think you’ll be able to fit a central heating system your first morning in the job. Would-be pianists aren’t shocked when they can’t play Beethoven’s Sonata Hammerklavier opus 106 the first time they sit down at a piano.

So, get real!

The first hurdle is to accept that your writing probably isn’t brilliant. Believe me, no one (except you) expects it to be.

Just get over yourself!
