During this month-long class you will have written and edited half of a novel-length book—without breaking a sweat. Join SavvyAuthors’ Dawn McClure to learn the Writer’s Secret Handshake. It’s a simple process that will have you churning out a book every three months—while only working on weekdays.

Motivation and determination will get you anywhere you want to be. Lack of motivation is why self-help books are taking up so much space on the shelves. People are searching for an easy way. They are looking for the path most traveled. Well, if you listen to all the great authors, it’s the path LEAST traveled that will get you to where you’ve been wanting to go—but I bet you already knew that. The great authors have a not-so-secret handshake, but you have to weed through all the pretty quotes to get to it. You have to stop looking for the easy way when it comes to writing a novel, and, you know, sit down and write it.

If you’re filling out your planner week by week and still not getting anywhere when it comes to writing, you’re nothing but a hamster on a wheel. You need to get out of the rut. You need like-minded people pushing you on—and none too gently. Writing is a business. If you start treating it like one, magic happens.

This class will give you exactly what you need for a thirty-day journey to a new you. If you follow the steps and handouts provided, a motivated, energetic author will emerge. Through tips, tricks and PDFs, you’ll not only set up your writing process—you’ll finally stick to it.

I love the structure of the class and all the information Dawn gave. I wasn't able to participate during the class but I plan to use all the lessons now. I love the idea of doing a scene a day.

I am looking forward to seeing what other classes Dawn will have.

Thank you for this amazing workshop!
I thought Dawn's lectures were very informative and I liked the structure of this workshop. I didn't get to participate because there were too many other things going on but if offered again in the future I would not hesitate to sign up.
While my day job and the added stresses of the corona virus pandemic prevented me from participating to the level I had hoped, I found the structure of this workshop and daily steps to be incredibly helpful. I printed off the lectures and plan to apply the lessons to my future stories. Thank you, Dawn, for putting together an amazing class. I highly recommend this course!
Dawn was great. The worksheets were very helpful. I liked the approach of just concentrating on one scene at a time to make sure it had necessary elements.
Dawn provided great writing guidelines and encouragement to help me reach my daily goals. Although I didn't have much spare time to engage, I still used her process to make my writing time count.
This bootcamp was fantastic. Writing can feel so lonely--and this session really took away that stigma--and offered information, too. I highly recommend it to any writer.
One of the best classes I've taken at Savvy Authors! The formula for editing was one I hadn't heard before and have found incredibly helpful. On top of that, there were twelve lessons, all of which were informative and valuable, and a daily accountability check-in. I also enjoyed the other participants sharing. Instructor was so supportive and quick to lend support and answer questions. I can't recommend the class and instructor enough!
