Praise for the Easy Way to Write!
The following testimonials are all genuine and recent.
Your Daily Inspirations are great! The motivation and encouragement
they give are like a friend that nudges a writer into action. Along with
your books, they are a godsend.
...Many a time I look at the inspirational quotes for that nudge to get
me writing. Since reading your books...I'm charged with enthusiasm.
My writing has improved tremendously from all the helpful tips. I don't
know of any other books that give so much detailed information, in
such powerful ways. Thank you so much, from an encouraged writer,
Sngdolphin aka Carole Dzerigian
Thanks for the great advice. I found the book an invaluable tool. Your tips actually put some structure into my writing. I have recommended you to my friends & fellow writers as a valuable tool for writers.
Just wanted to thank you for the course. You have provided me with a lot of useful information. I wish you the best and again thanks. I'll remember you when I'm published.
Rob, I have written three books prior to reading your book. I have to
say that I am very impressed. With your advice, I'm sure my next book
will be better and will be done sooner. Thanks
I just finished your book, for the first time that is, and its great!
I identified with nearly everything (in the first half) and you offered me something I've never had and that's a way to begin writing fiction; everything I've ever written is fact, and even a slight attempt at fiction scared me to death: Nevermore, quoth this raven.
Thank you for writing and publishing and offering this book. Thank you so much Rob, and I look forward to more of your works.
Warm regards, Jo Ann
Did you REALLY just start on the internet less than a year ago? I've seen a lot of advice and a lot offered, but I've rarely seen an internet presence as clearly honest as you are. The interesting part is that the more honest you seem, the more valuable your information. Obviously you're not putting out hype; it's so clear that you're not trying to grab a quick dollar at the expense of others.
Reading your work, as I've spent the greater part of this evening doing, is an inspiration. Not only do I know I can pull this off, but I'm not disillusioned again by another rip-off artist.
Thank you so very much and all of you for offering this service.
I am a column writer (weekly, two years now) and publish magazines
articles, some poetry, and can't wait to get started in fiction. I
know I've come to the right place!
FIRST OF ALL I WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU FOR THE PAST LESSONS YOU SENT ME. I WANT TO TELL YOU THAT THEY HAVE ALREADY CHANGED MY VIEW OF THE ART AND TECHNIQUE OF WRITING A NOVEL.
AS A MATTER OF FACT, I HAVE ALWAYS HAD IDEAS OF STORIES THAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE SO NICE ONCE THEY GOT PUBLISHED. BUT I HAD NEVER FELT CONFIDENT ABOUT MY WRITING BEFORE. THOSE FEW LESSONS WITH YOU, HOWEVER, ARE ALREADY CHANGING THAT. AND I AM OF THE VIEW THAT IF I PURCHASE THE EASY WAY TO WRITE I COULD RELEASE MY FULL WRITING POTENTIAL ,SAY OVERNIGHT.
Just wanted to say I found your short course inspirational as a writer - I'm
always experimenting with the approach to writing itself and your advice
came as close as I've ever found to the experience :) It's great to know
there are other writers out there who have also taken the time to look
introspectively at the creative pursuit instead of just saying 'I could
write something like that if I wanted to' but then never finding out what
it's like to try :)
Thanks for your insight,
I ordered, received, and printed out your "The Easy Way to Write a Novel" all in a matter of three hours. While printing I also did about two hours of other necessary chores. When adding paper to my copier I could not help reading a few words on some pages. They just jumped out at me. I have now read 'Author's Note' and now can hardly wait to read the entire book.
I have several books started and one movie script completed. Since the script is a period piece (no markets for 1800's Old West stuff) I am doing a book. I can add all the good parts that I had to cut in the script.
Thanks so much for your ebook. I feel that it is precisely what I needed. I will read every word before I attempt to write again.
Good luck and God Bless you. L.G.
I just wanted to stop by and say Thank You for the wonderful site you have for writers. Your tips and writing advice is put in such a way as to make it so much easier for me to do. I have searched for a site such as yours for years, and thanks to you, have finally found it. Oh, and thanks for the Yahoo Group. Being able to communicate with other writers is a Godsend. I can't wait to get started writing again.
Please keep everything coming. Thank you so very much.
As always, B.B.
Thank you for the newsletter. I will be looking forward to the next one. I also want to thank you for all the past things you have sent me, they have really helped me to really get grounded and work on my writings. I am published in a small town monthly newspaper, as well as a few newsletter articles for a goat club, but so far I've yet to be paid for anything. So I will be very interested in your next issue.
Rob, Thank you for writing such a helpful book.
I am enjoying the Romance lessons. I have found them to be very useful and am using them to learn more about writing romance. I will be attempting to write a romance novel for NaNowriMo using your course and your e-book as my backup.
Thank you for your answer. Feels so good to know you're not alone!
I'm very impressed with your organization...on the ball! Thank you so much for sending me the book. I can't wait to get started using it.
I think the idea of a newsletter giving good useful information about making a living writing is fabulous! I love them.
Rob, I do enjoy
reading your tips in your lessons - even when I time
is sometimes a problem in keeping up.
Please keep me on your list for further lessons. I find your tips very useful.
I love your "tips" on the easy way to write:). They give me information for the short story I have in mind. Keep up the good work; we beginning writers need encouragement.
Thanks for the quick reply. You're pretty amazing.
Hi Rob...I'm sorry I haven't written to you sooner, but I am enjoying the
lessons and hope they don't stop any time soon!!...it really gives me something to look forward to and will be invaluable when the times comes for me to get serious again....thank you so much for your time and patience with all of us and for all the encouragement you have provided...May God bless and keep you always....Your fellow "Searcher of the right words"!!...Lee :>)
I've really been enjoying your newsletter. It's really great and always full of helpful information. Keep up the good work and best wishes for many more successes in your writing career.
I am very interested in this course, Te price is terrific and much appreciated. I also enjoy reading the discussions in the chat room when I have time. I've only contributed once or twice myself, but I have picked up some good information.
Thanks for taking such good care of your fellow writers.
Rob, thanks for your offers.
You can't imagine
how my life has changed since I discovered you. I feel back to life (writing
I will try to join the chat room next Sunday, so we can actually meet.
Till then, thanks again!
Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, your email precisely answered my question. Sounds like we have similar fluid work processes.
By the way, vis-a-vis your bio (I forget now where I read it) -- I also found it interesting because I made my living as a musician for about 12 years after college (which is what brought me out to LA). Now I play just for fun.
Anyway, thanks again for your info and the kindness you display on your site and in your materials.
The lessons you've been sending me are very precious information. Thanks a million Rob. I am not a writer by profession and have no proper training. I just love to write. Having you as a coach is a great help, and I am learning!
Thanks for your help.
Know from inside knowledge my huge appetite for Romance novels. Will proceed to write in this field with the knowledge gained from your book.
Thank you, Rob Parnell.
Rob, Thank you for 'Becoming a Better Writer' I
have found the lessons very helpful and informative.
Rob, just touching base on a couple of things. I have finished my story and am now editing and rewriting parts of the novel to make it totally credible. Also, your lessons have been extremely valuable and I look forward to more courses in the future. Take care! S.W.
PS I'm enjoying the dialogue of the group.
Rob, Thank you for all you are doing for me through the materials you send. I appreciate them very much.
I am thrilled to pieces about Stories: One and can't wait to get my grubby little paws on it. <tee hee>
Hi Rob -
I think you're doing a fabulous job...great information, wonderfully encouraging tone, an amazing volume of e-mails and offers...keep it up...
I want to thank you for all your hard work. The lessons lessons have been great. I am learning so much from them and am trying to apply the new knowledge at every turn. S.G
Hi Rob -
Thank you for your generous reply. Having just sat in on a PACKED talk last night given by a literary agent at the Women Writers Network in London - and watching the 50 or more attendees (the event was not advertised) mob the poor woman afterwards - I have no doubt there are a ton of people who would love what you're doing...and will be surprised if you don't have to take on a partner one of these days. I wish you this success, but am glad I get to work a bit with you in the meantime. I like your style.
Really great lesson.
Very useful indeed
I've been using the lessons from "Easy way to write" to help me along my little adventure. It's been a great help! Thanks!!
I should have written to you before now, as I signed up for your 'Easy Way to Write a Novel' course in September. Around the same time I bought a course from the English writer, Nick Daws ('How to Write Any Book in 28 Days . . . or Less). I found both courses extremely well written and helpful, and the upshot was that I wrote a children's book in three weeks, whereas it would normally have taken me about six months. There was no real conflicting advice in either course - so it would probably have been easier for me to have bought one and stuck to it! However, I found your course extremely worthwhile, so I must thank you here and now for the help you've given me.
Now to other things. A couple of days ago I bought 'How To Be an Internet Guru' from you. Wow! To be truthful I don't really know why I bought it. It was an impulse buy - although I'm sure you know it was down to your brilliant powers of persuasion!! Anyway, I read the book this morning, took the dog for a walk this afternoon - and came back with an e-book planned and mapped out in my dictaphone - totally from scratch.
I'm really excited about this one. I've written books on confidence and study skills for teenagers - and I'm also in the middle of my second fiction book for kids. Now thanks to you I also have a book for parents about how to deal with troublesome adolescents. Well done, Rob, I can't thank you enough. Thanks to your two e-books I'm sure I'll have my new project written in a couple of weeks.
Rob, I'd really appreciate a reply soon - especially if I'm going to sign up for the 'Get Published' book. $171 sounds better than $241 . . . Oh heck, I feel the impulse coming on again. I think I'll just go ahead and order right now. (The impulse is probably my intuition.) I hope you'll reassure me, nevertheless, Rob. Come to think of it, if your first two have worked really well for me, why shouldn't I take your word on this one, right?
Thanks a million. Hope to hear from you soon!
Your lessons are so valuable. Thank you for spending so
much time to help the rest of us. Whit
Thank you so much for the e-book. You are just too COOL! I'll tell
creative writing major friends at school how great your books are. Thanks,
I am just connecting with you and to thank you for keeping in touch.
I would say to you that I have enjoyed your classes and will again participate more fully in more in the future. From the knowledge I gleaned from your "Romance Classes" it enabled me to move into my second draft, and I, might add, it is from the feelings and the passions that I am tackling this time around.
So thank you, I will keep plodding along, but I am grateful for your communication, it has also helped me to continue.
I think you are a very good "coach" and you have helped me to find a way again to return somehow to myself.
First, I'd like to thank you for these lessons. They are a huge help. Thank you for your time.
Rob - Loved lesson 4. It dobs the cream on top of the confection. Adds the nitty gritty to the thriller. You certainly have a way of seeing things in a different light to other writing instructors and making it all seem easier.
I think the idea of having a critique panel is a very positive and encouraging way of sharing the created word.
I thoroughly enjoy your work and look forward to your newsletters. You have been a great encouragement.
Firstly let me thank you for writing “How to be an internet guru.” I have found the book a real inspiration and motivator. I bought the e-book about 4 weeks ago and have read it twice and refer to specific parts often.
Your book has given me a kick up the ass and I have retrieved one of the short manuals I shelved, and started to edit and improve on it. I now plan to sell via the internet as an e-book.
I am enjoying the daily course and ezine…keep em coming.
I just sold my fourth novel to Wings - this one is a young adult historical set in 1817 Colorado Mountians called Watch for the Raven-- I'm so excited I had to share, thanks for letting me. Robs easy way to write classes really helped.
Thanks for the great lesson. It was exactly what I needed to hear right now. You are pointing at exactly what I need to see, and the advice is so specific and practical.
So glad I signed up.
Thanks for the inspiration! Coincidentally, I recently had the most beautiful dream about a church that included a little drama and ended with the most surprising twist. After I told my husband about it the next morning, I immediately thought of your Thriller lessons and promptly decided to sign up right away. Thank you, truly, the dream and your lessons were Heaven sent.
Thanks for the encouragement - it helps.
