   Watch Promo

Have you got that golden idea for a book, the one that won't let you go, that embellishes itself as you walk around your day, but you don't know what to do with it? Or, maybe you find yourself in the saggy middle of writing your book and want to throw in the towel. Or possibly you've completed first draft but know something isn't quite right with it. Whatever your situation, this class shows you how to take control of your book with the 7-step Pyramid on Point method.

This workshop has been taught by Jess from San Francisco to Stockholm, and it's finally available online! The method works for fiction of any length (short story, novella, novel) and memoir.

*If you've already taken the Crack the Sea course, you do not need to take this one. Their content is 80% the same.
