During the week Robert J. Ray was a teacher. On weekends he learned the fiction writer's craft and produced his first novel. He ended up selling six books in six years. The same success as a writer can happen to you.
His step-by-step program, the same one he uses himself and teaches in his popular fiction-writing class, organizes your writing around the weekends. Each weekend you work through the basics of character, scene, and plot, the construction of the novel in scenes and chapters, and the actual writing and editing of your book.

Robert J. Ray is the author of eight novels, including the acclaimed Matt Murdock Mystery series, and has also written several practical writing guides. Bret Norris is an experienced writer and successful literary agent.From Library Journal:
Ray, the author of seven mystery novels including Bloody Murdock , LJ 7/86, and The Hitman Cometh , LJ 2/1/88, offers potential writers an opportunity to craft a novel over a year by following 52 weekend work sessions. During weekends one through 14, readers are instructed in the basics of character, scene, and plot. The remaining weekends focus on the classic Aristotelian three-act dramatic structure of the novel. Each weekend assignment includes guidelines and examples from well-known writers' works (especially Anne Tyler's The Accidental Tourist ), plus exercises and "Learning from Other Writers" tips to practice during the week. A brief appendix includes a section on finding a publisher; a glossary, and a bibliography. This reviewer cannot vouch for the effectiveness of this book without actively working through its lessons, but many readers may find it worth pursuing.
