[Write Your Novel With Confidence] The world is waiting for your stories

Published over 1 year ago • 1 min read

Hello Reader,

Do you dream of writing a book? Not just any book—your book. Your collection of stories, your novel, your memoir.

For too many people, writing a book stays in the dream realm. They never get started on it. Or they start, but so often, never finish.

But it doesn’t have to be like that for you.

My friend and fellow book coach, Emma Dhesi, has brought together over twenty writers, creatives, publishers, and editors, to help you demystify the process of structuring your story for success.

Be A Bestseller 4.0: Write Your Novel With Confidence does just that. You’ll learn how to get started, keep the middle from dragging and, most importantly, finish your story.

The world is waiting for you to finish so, whether you’re starting out, halfway through or even revising, this summit has something for you.

If you want better engagement with your readers or to find a community of other writers, you’ll find a way forward.

I saved two of my most anticipated talks from Be A Bestseller 4.0: Write Your Novel With Confidence for last. Check it out:

  • Beth Barany, a creativity coach who will be sharing her world-building tips for novelists;
  • Rhonda Douglas, an award-winning author who will be discussing how to meet your writing goals with short writing sessions.

Beth and Rhonda are both excellent, so make sure you tune in to their sessions. And if you enjoyed my holiday reading list last month, you'll want to tune into mine as well because I've got a special social and environmental justice reading list that's going out to Be A Bestseller 4.0: Write Your Novel With Confidence registrants before it becomes available to the general public. It's full of new releases as well as classics across age groups and genres. You're going to want to check it out.

Reserve your seat now:

Hope to see you there!

Hello Reader, Recently, I listened to a podcast with “Deep Work” advocate Cal Newport that talked about the impact of social media, email, and, more broadly, distraction has on our creative work. But he also mentioned a philosophical war of sorts between Deep Work denizens and those who adhere to Mihaly Csikszentmihali’s theory of "Flow" or what he calls "optimal experience." In a world obsessed with these sort of ideological cage matches, I often start thinking in the dialectic—what if it’s...

Hello Reader, It's been a busy spring around here! I offered my first-ever free three-hour workshop to the public. I migrated my course materials to a brand-new platform with robust features to support writers. And I even spruced up my look with a months-long rebranding process. Then last week, we onboarded the next cohort of writers to the Wyrd Writers Collective. I'm absolutely energized by all of this, but I've also been woefully neglecting my novel. It can be so hard to prioritize our...

Hello Reader, One of questions that emerged from Story Scaffolding Live! last week was around a question that appears in my course materials and those of other writing coaches as well, as well as on several editor and agent submission forms: Why are you the right person to tell this story? I love asking this question because it gets to the heart of your bigger "Why" for writing the story--what it means to you on a personal and emotional level, moving beyond the events that happen in the story...
