Writing Rituals - Does It Work? An Honest Review

What Is "Writing Rituals"?
"Writing Rituals" is a productivity guide for commercial writers and copywriters. By using it's 5 Writing Rituals, the author, Nick Usborne, claims "you can turn things around very quickly, and achieve a dramatic increase in your productivity. This means you'll get more writing done faster, and earn more money, every day, every week, every month and every year."
The Sales Pitch
I'll let Nick speak for himself:
Few of us write to our full capacity.
I know there are times when I don't.
I have been a freelance copywriter for almost 30 years now, and still have productivity problems from time to time.
I also know I'm not alone. I have corresponded with dozens of other commercial writers and copywriters over the years, many of whom have the exact same problems.
These productivity challenges apply to people writing copy, web site content, blogs, white papers, business reports, essays, college papers, e-books and any other non-fiction.
I came across Writing Rituals via a recommendation on the 'warriorforum' forum. At just $17 it's priced cheaper than many other manuals. I do a lot of writing for many outlets, AND I suffer way to often from lack of focus and procrastination (is it me, or is it an age-related thing - seems to get worse as I get older!). So buying it made sense for me.
You can see the rest of his sales pitch on his web site, which can be reached through .
He also has a great little affiliate opportunity. And yes, I'm gladly an affiliate too!
You get 50%, which is excellent, all handled through ClickBank.
And the icing on the cake? Nick provides affiliates with a number of articles to help with the pre-sell process, and these are great articles in their own right anyway!
What You Get
You get a 46 page PDF document, nicely laid out, pleasing on the eye. And no fluff.
The style is relaxed, and very empathetic - Nick clearly appreciates what it is like to have writer's block for example. It's easy to read, easy to access, thanks to the page numbering, use of space, and signposting - using a mix of heading styles and relevant graphics to indicate where each section starts & stops.
One of the last pages summarises the 5 rituals in a very useful format. In fact, I've printed this page out, laminated it and stuck it on the wall in front of my desk in my study!
I particularly like the story of Nick's brother, a cabinet maker, and how he achieves what he does. Through this device we quickly get to grips with the rituals, what they are and why they are necessary. And this helps the rituals stick in the mind. Now, if only more writers of eBooks did the same...!
The essence of Writing Rituals are the 5 rituals themselves, which are:
  1. clear your mind - remove distractions.
  2. visualise the outcome.
  3. get fully loaded - get all the information you need for the job, allocate time.
  4. start writing - start anywhere!
  5. stick to the plan
The manual shows you HOW to achieve these rituals. And they ARE rituals and not habits because, as Nick himself points out,
