How to Achieve Balance and Discipline as a Writer

Overcome Your Blocks and Write That Book

   Watch Promo

Creative health and a balanced process are the most important aspects of writing. They're also the parts many of us struggle with, as well as the skills least likely to be taught by other writers/teachers. That's about to change, because in this course I share my secret sauce, my tips and tricks that allow me to teach full-time and write two books a year without sacrificing personal health or time with friends and family.

This course shows you how to set realistic goals, address your blocks, and establish a balanced, reward-based schedule to finish any writing project—including a book—this year.
