6-month Book Writing Program: write your first draft
September 6th 2019 → March 2nd 2020
Sign up below if you are interested, as there are only 10 spaces for soon-to-be authors available.
In six months, you can write your first draft. With my support and the support of other writers—of all genres—you will receive encouragement, resources, and accountability to move your book forward and bring your words into the world. Over the six months of this program, you will receive: 3 1:1 discussion sessions with me | 6 Group Discussions | developmental/content editing for 2-4 chapters each month | 6 personalized Wrap Up Sheets (to track progress and provide editorial, structural, and content feedback) | private Facebook Group access | writing and publishing resources
Month 1: Get organized, get to know your book, create a plan, and begin writing. Whether you have pages and pages, a few sentences strung together, or zero words written, we will define your book’s subject and core message, get clear on the structure or narrative, and choose major and minor themes to be represented throughout. In this first month, you will choose your pace deliverable content (number of pages or chapters) and we will create a “working outline,” which means this outline will shape and shift along the way. Month 1, and we’re just getting started (includes one 1:1 session + one group discussion + one Wrap Up Sheet).
Months 2-5: Get ready to move your book forward, stay the course, and work through those blocks to progress and process. During our group sessions, we will the explore systems and structures and the tools and techniques that support your life as a writer. We will discuss anything from the writing process to the importance of building a social media platform to how to improve your craft and technique. And when those “stuck” and “why the heck am I doing this?” feelings surface, we’ll work through those, too. Together. Each month you will be encouraged to share your work and asked to deliver agreed content (includes one 1:1 session in month 3 + four group discussions + four Wrap Up Sheets).
Month 6: Get ready to wrap up and to celebrate how far everyone has come. At the end of our six months, we might be determining the pages you have left to write or making a plan for your next draft. In truth, I cannot guarantee that you will have a complete manuscript. It is highly possible, but remember that this process of becoming an author is different for everyone. There is no pace that is wrong or right, good or bad. Time, commitment, inspiration, and devotion all play big roles. But I will guarantee that you will be well on your way to publishing your book and have a good group of folks to cheer your on. Month 6, and look how far you’ve come (includes one 1:1 session + one group discussion + one Wrap Up Sheet).
