This step-by-step book shows you how to organise your writing around weekends.

There is also advice on: * How to make your writing time sacred. * Which books to have on your bookshelf. * How to think like a writer. * Why other writers quit after the first chapter ...but you won't. * How to start your book in the first four weekends ...and how just one month will change your life.
