Amazon's #1 Book on Writing

“Alan Watt’s The 90-Day Novel is a treasure trove of insight, not only for beginners or aspiring writers but for grizzled old-timers like myself, who can profit, always, from revisiting the fundamentals and First Principles of the writer’s calling. Two thumbs up!”

Steven Pressfield

Bestselling author of The War of Art

"I went out and bought a book called The 90-Day Novel, by Alan Watt. It’s ridiculous, claiming that anybody can write a great book, and quickly too. [. . .] But it ended up as an Oulipian thing, [. . .] it was actually interesting to conform to the rules.”

Ottessa Moshfegh

ManBooker Prize finalist for Eileen, Penguin Random House

“It is difficult to distill what Al Watt does in his workshops. He helps us tap into that secret world that lies within, a world often victim to procrastination, insecurity and lack of focus, whiling instilling a fundamental knowing that we are uniquely qualified to tell our story.”

Donna Powers

Screenwriter of The Italian Job

"Al’s 90-Day Novel is the best writing workshop I have ever taken. The supportive nature of the class inspires and motivates you to get to the true heart of your story. By the 90th day I had completed my rough draft (300 pages) and developed a writing ritual that has become an essential part of my life."

Jennifer L. Scott
