I invite whoever is ready to be part of a 'JUST WRITE IT' program to sign up and finally do what you're always saying you want to do: write that book.
I will take on 3-5 people who want 1, 3, or 6 months of mentoring and editing from me to start, continue, or finish a manuscript. You will turn in a set number of pages every two weeks and I will read and edit them. We will also have two phone calls a month where I'll inspire and challenge you to move forward on your manuscript.
The right Real Writer will commit to meeting the two week deadline that he/she sets, as well as the page count, based on whether he/she chooses a 1, 3, or 6 month writing blitz. That's what it is. A blitz. Choose to deeply engage with your writing dream for whatever period you can commit to. Try one month and then add another! Or 3!
You'll receive both mentoring AND editing from me, which is twice the benefit, but you'll only pay for half of those services.
I hear all the time from writers that they need someone to push them. They need structure. They need someone to talk them through the details of their book. And they need someone who can edit the work so they can improve as they write.
And year after year (after year!) they don't write that book. It never has the life it should, and they miss out on the amazing, challenging, inspiring, high-inducing experience of navigating their story and meeting and interacting with their characters.
No waking up in the middle of the night with a scene in their head. Laughing to themselves in line at the grocery story when a line of dialogue shows up. Feeling the magic of a plot piece falling into place. Ideas come from everywhere. I swear, it starts to seem like the whole world is conspiring to help you write the book.
The only way to make this happen is to just do it. There's no other magic formula (sorry!). And I'd like to help writers during the process, as what I'll teach you along the way will improve your writing. You'll see it happening as you progress!
If you're SERIOUS about your writing, email me firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll figure out the best plan for you.
When I say serious, I mean it. Here's a little tough love for you: don't waste my time or yours if you're not. (But I hope you'll be ready someday, I don't want you to miss out on the experience.)
Fiction, nonfiction, or poetry - all are welcome.
Let's get it done, once and for all, shall we?
