Resources you’ll have access to in the author library:
Write your way
Why aren’t I writing? How do I get over writer’s block? By the end of this lesson, you’ll have identified the rhythms and tools that work for you, fit in with your lifestyle and mean you actually get your writing done.
Which book should I write?
If you have multiple ideas or thirteen messy drafts, this is the lesson to help you decide the ideal book to write for your business or career, or even which book to write first!
Write a winning hook
Whether you are planning to self publish or publish traditionally, you’ll need a book hook to sell your book. A hook tells your reader what your book’s about and what’s unique about it. This lesson walks you though my strategy for working with tiny texts. By the end of the session you’ll have written your winning book hook.
Write an exceptional book proposal
You’ll need to write a book proposal to sell your book to an agent or publisher if you’re planning to publish your nonfiction book traditionally. However, I recommend you complete the steps of a book proposal even if you are self publishing. This will help you plan and market your book for the best chance of success. After this lesson, you’ll know what a book proposal is, what to include and how to write it.
Stories to engage your reader
We learn best through story. Stories will keep your reader turning the pages of your book, whatever you’re teaching. But there’s not just one type of story.
After completing this lesson, you’ll know about the different types of story you can write, you’ll have a bank of stories to use in your nonfiction book project and you’ll know just how to write stories that will captivate your audience.
Edit and proofread like a pro
This lesson takes you through the four essential stages of editing and proofreading.
However you’re publishing, after this lesson, you’ll know your book is in the best possible shape it can be before you hand it to your editor. You’ll also know how to look for the editing help you need when you’re hiring professionals.
During Monday office hours I’ll be available to coach you through your writing projects.
Each Thursday session is a group co-writing session with three focused writing sprints and time to meet your fellow writers.
While you’re writing, I’ll be giving written feedback on drafts, outlines and project plans.
