My experience with my own writing career, as well as with clients and students, all comes down to one conclusion: Most of us just need to buckle down and actually do the writing. We can talk about it, read about it, think about it for months, maybe even years. But to be a writer you must write.
That’s why I designed this new motivational program: particularly perfect for those New Year’s resolutions you’ll be making soon. Here’s all the info you need … sign up now!:
The Getting Real About Writing 30-Day Challenge
Do you have tons of ideas for writing, but “no time” to actually get them done? Maybe you’ve taken a zillion writing classes, read a billion books about writing, but still haven’t finished (or started!) that novel, essay, short story, or book proposal. Maybe you have a demanding job and/or family that seems to always need tending until your allotted writing time is all gone.
YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE. THIS CHALLENGE IS FOR YOU.
Getting Real About Writing is a 30-day program designed to help you to (read: force you to!) focus on your writing. I’ve designed it to meet the needs of most “aspiring” writers I’ve encountered as a teacher and writing coach: You have great ideas and you have the skills. You just need to actually put the words on the paper. This is what separates the aspirants from the writers: words on paper. In just one month, we will make you a writer.
Enough with the “if only …”s. If only you were independently wealthy and didn’t need to work. If only you lived in a silent house alone by the ocean with no responsibilities. If only the space-time continuum weren’t so restrictive …
The “if only …”s are never going to happen. The Getting Real About Writing Challenge will show you that your writing is possible anyway. My approach is simple, even if it isn’t easy: I’ll help you set concrete, achievable goals. Then we’ll get to work.
WHAT IS THE GETTING REAL ABOUT WRITING CHALLENGE?
It’s a self-guided, 30-day course that dispenses with all the (well, most of the) talking and writing about writing … to get to the writing itself. Course materials include:
- Goal-setting exercises, which I will consult on if necessary.
- Daily minimum-writing-time goals, with e-mail reminders.
- Optional membership in a private Getting Real About Writing Facebook group to exchange tips, complaints, and support with fellow writers.
- Weekly downloadable inspiration and practical exercises to keep you on track.
WHAT DOES IT COST?
One easy payment of $29.
WILL IT WORK FOR YOU?
If you’re ready to put in the work, it will. This is not a course about how to write — you have that covered. (Seriously, you do.) This is about making yourself into a writer, about doing the actual work. It’s about setting goals and achieving them, sticking with a writing routine, and finding the time to do it all despite your “if only …”s. Yes, we are going to make time. We are going to find it where you thought there wasn’t any. WE ARE GOING TO BEND THE SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM.
