What's stopping you from finishing your book?

Seriously. What's stopping you?

If you’re like most of the writers I talk to, you want to write a book.

You have great ideas. You have this feeling deep in your gut that your book will be amazing. People have even told you, “You need to write a book!”

 

And yet, things just keep getting in the way.

 

Those obstacles often look like normal life problems, right? Like getting busy, starting a new job, moving, or needing to focus on other projects.

But usually what’s keeping you from finishing your book is the writing process itself:

  • Lack of imagination
  • Writing is HARD
  • Writing can quickly become not fun
  • Fear (Can we admit that out loud?)

Maybe you’ve tried to write a book several times in the past and only gotten 50 or so pages in before abandoning the process.

Maybe you’re in the middle of your book and you don’t want to fail like you have in the past.

You always believed you would someday write a book, but at your lowest, you think, “What if I never finish my book? What if I die never having accomplished my dream?”

 

I know how hard it is to write a book because I’ve been there. 

My name is Joe Bunting, and I’ve written seven books. I’ve also trained thousands of people on how to write books of their own.

But writing didn’t come to me naturally. In fact, I have always struggled to write. In high school, I decided I wanted to become a professional writer, but I wasn’t writing.

In college, I even studied creative writing, but I still couldn’t manage to finish a book.

After college, I worked as a journalist and then did travel writing, but every time I tried to write a book, I failed miserably.

 

Then something happened: I learned the process.

As luck would have it, I got to learn how to write a book from a New York Times bestselling author. Then my book was edited by someone who is now a USA Today bestselling author.

After that first book, I wrote six more books. But if I hadn’t first learned this process, I would still be stuck today.

If you think you can do it on your own, you’re destined to continue to fail at writing your book.

But with the right process, you can finally experience what it’s like to finish writing your book. (It’s an amazing experience. Trust me.)

A book writing process that will change your life.

Classic Story Archetypes 

Writing and storytelling has been around for thousands of years. Your goal shouldn’t be to write something new.

This short guide will help you borrow from the past so you can write something fresh.

That includes everything you need to write your book. BUT what about AFTER you finish your book?

Build a Platform and Get Published

Why 100 Days?

You might think, no one can write a book in 100 days. And certainly not a good book.

You might even feel like a program like this is just a quick fix. Writing a book should take longer. It’s about the experience!

But let me ask you this: When was the last time you spent 100 days completely focused on your writing?

This level of focus can be life-changing. You’ll write more than you ever have (plenty for a book). Best of all, you’ll feel creatively invigorated and alive.

This is why Stephen King said:

The first draft of a book—even a long one—should take no more than three months, the length of a season.

Writing a book in a short period of time like this gives an energy and focus to your writing.

That’s why we believe that 100 days is the perfect length of time to write the first draft of your book.

Yes, your book will need more work afterward, so we’ll walk you through the editing process, too.

However, after 100 days, you will have accomplished the most important part: You will have written a book! And that’s something to be very proud of.

“This program gave me the tools I needed to create a plan, execute in a timely manner, and accomplish my goal of writing my first draft of my book. Without the planning on the front end, the accountability of Joe’s coaching and my writing community, this would never have been possible.”

Kevin Garcia

“The most effective part of the class for me was the accountability and community. Having other people to take that journey with me was a substantial force behind my success.”

Kellie McGann

“I wouldn’t be a published author without Joe Bunting. Not only did he teach me how to take an idea and turn it into a story, he showed me how to collaborate with other authors to make my writing the best it could be, which gave me the courage to share it with the world.”
