“For your born writer, nothing is so healing as the realization that he has come upon the right word.”
—Catherine Drinker Bowen

Why Will The Write Practice Help You Become a Writer?

Michael Jordan practiced.

Joshua Bell practices.

Tiger Woods practiced. He took his first swing when he was two years old.

Bill Gates practiced.

Pablo Picasso practiced. He started painting when he was seven.

So then why don’t writers practice?

The Write Practice is here to kick-start your practice. You have to write millions of words no one is ever going to see before you can write the ones that will change someone’s life.

Fifteen minutes a day, five days a week, you will practice with fresh writing prompts, unique lessons on technique, and an encouraging, supportive community to give you feedback. As you learn how great writers found their voices, you’ll grow into yours. And you’ll be on your way not just to publishing, but to publishing something people will actually want to read.
