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.
