What you will learn from this book, Agile Writer Method, is probably the most important thing you can learn about writing.

There are many books on writing, and I’ve read a lot of them. They teach you very important things about the craft, and you need to learn all of that if you want to be a good writer. The most important thing in my mind, however, is what Greg Smith’s book teaches. Agile Writer Method proves to you that you can write.

The writer has at least two problems. The first is the craft: learning to write well, having something worth saying. The second is the discipline to sit your butt in a chair and actually write. Agile writer addresses the second problem and gets you to write. What this book will help you with is the motivation, and it will show you that you must take a shot at being a writer. You will be able to able to do the most important part of it, and that is actually getting down to writing.

In all of the writers groups and hang outs I go to, there are always aspiring writers who have ideas, or outlines, or chapters, but few have done the work of actually sitting and typing until their nails need to be trimmed, for hours at a time, days upon days, in order to do a first draft until it’s done. Greg’s book gives you the tools and discipline that make this possible.

About the method itself. This book is based upon your decision to write a book of genre fiction based upon “the hero’s journey,” which we find in literature since ancient times, and in the oldest stories. From Beowulf to Moses, you’ll see the hero’s journey told over and over again, from The Odyssey to Star Wars, we all love a good story that has this hero quest theme.

Last night I attended one of the Agile Writers meetings and instantly was quite impressed. Not really knowing what to expect, I was prepared for an evening of tweed covered men and women (pipes optonal) discussing the concepts of their current projects. Entertaining perhaps, but probably not very useful.

Little could I have thought how different the evening would turn out. Greg has not only written a fantastic (and practical) guide to novel writing, the way the meetings are structured are very organized and I can easily see how it would help any aspiring writer to produce.

Deciding to partake of this unexpected resource in my own town, I did not wait until Saturday to purchase the book at his seminar but went ahead and bought the kindle version. I was so engaging, helpful and practical; I read it straight through in one sitting.

This is no dry technical manual, but a well written useful guide to writng. Seeing how Joseph Campbell's "Hero of a Thousand Faces" was used as one of the resources, had me hooked immediately. Already I am going back on the manuscript I have written and rethought large parts of it by some of the points in this book. Everything from the Odyssey to Star Wars is covered, and the discussion of Star Wars as examples was particularly helpful.

I am throughly looking forward to buying my "hard copy" as well as participating in this Group. I highly recommend to anyone even thinking about writing. This will set you on the right path.

This book is designed as a companion guide to the author's class on novel writing, but this book stands alone just fine. The basis for the writing method taught in this book is the concept of the Hero's Journey, as outlined by Joseph Campbell and Christopher Vogler. This concept is explained in the book, and then step-by-step instructions are given on how to put together a novel-length story using this outline. The book is written in simple language with a lot of lists and bullet points, so it's easy to understand for anyone regardless of their literary background or previous writing experience. I would recommend this for anyone interested in learning more about the art of storytelling.
