The Write Practice Can Help You Get Published

Let me show you how

You want to get published. That makes sense. Most writers do.

But here's the question: are you practicing?

Because 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.


But most writers don't practice.

Most writers think they were born with whatever talent they have and they're not going to get much better.

Most writers believe if you're not a genius writer, you'll never be one. They believe if you're not a good writer, you'll never become a good writer. They believe that we are limited, basically, to whatever talent we were born with.

At The Write Practice, we don't believe that:

  • We believe everyone can become a great writer.
  • We believe everything has something important they have to share with the world.
  • We believe everyone can grow through practice (and everyone can get published).


And you? Are you practicing your writing?

I started The Write Practice in 2011 with one goal, to help writers like me. To help them practice, become better writers, and get their best writing published. 

The Write Practice is here to kick-start your writing 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.

All we ask for is fifteen minutes a day, five days a week, you will practice with fresh writing prompts, unique lessons on technique, and an encouraging, supportive writing 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.

Welcome to The Write Practice. Ready to start your practice?
