    About the author (2006)

    Arthur Herzog is an award-winning novelist, non-fiction writer and journalist, renowned for his best-selling novels The Swarm, Orca (both made into popular movies), and I.Q. 83, hailed by the British press as one of the best science fiction works ever written and currently under option to Dreamworks. Mr. Herzog, an obvious lover of literature, feels passionate about the craft of writing and fathered this book and lecture series to show others how to achieve what he knows is possible. Mr. Herzog teaches a practical approach to writing based on his belief that at least 75% of the writing process is proper preparation. ?Discipline is half the battle,? he says, ?Writing is more method and organization than inspiration.? The concise, painless method Herzog has patterned leads the neophyte or the pro through five steps to better writing: Psyche Yourself Out; Sit Yourself Down; The Right Idea; The Write Stuff; and Read It and Weep. The ability to write frees Herzog, is imperative to a life fulfilled. A person who can?t write is going to be ever more deprived in a world based on communication. ?If you can?t write well,? notes the author, ?You lose a tremendous occupational level.?
