Conquer the clock
The biggest problem that many writers face today is not finding their voice, writing beautiful sentences or even knowing where to start their story – it’s finding time to write.
When life is horribly busy, writing feels like the biggest self-indulgence of all, taking you away from friends, family, work and everything else that matters.
But writing matters too.
Which is why it’s essential that you make the time to do what you love.
The big question is “how?”.
This course answers that question. We’ll give you a step-by-step guide to getting the words written, no matter what.
We’ll help you fight procrastination.
We’ll show you how to spot the crevices in your day – tiny little writing opportunities that can add up to big word counts.
We’ll tell you exactly how other authors do it.
