Show me how it works »Sign me up »

If you’re like most of the writers I talk to, you want to become a bestselling writer.

You have a great book idea, maybe many great book 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, life just keeps getting in the way.

The obstacles to writing often look like normal life problems, right? Like spending time with friends or family, starting a new job, moving, or needing to focus on other projects.

But on top of that, it doesn’t help that writing can be incredibly hard. You run into problems like:

  • Lack of imagination
  • Fear (Can we admit that?)
  • Perfectionism
  • Not knowing what comes next

All of these combine into writing quickly becoming not fun.

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 you can’t help but worry:

“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 nine 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 couldn’t even finish one chapter of a book.

In college, I even studied creative writing, but that just made it harder since I knew how bad my own writing was compared to the writers I loved.

After college, I worked as a journalist and then traveled the world to write, but every time I tried to write a book, I failed miserably.

It went on like this for years.

Then something happened:
I learned the process.

As luck would have it, I met a New York Times bestselling author who agreed to teach me to write a book. Then my book was edited by someone who is now a Wall Street Journal bestselling author.

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

If you think you can learn the process and write a book it on your own, you’re destined to continue to fail at writing your book.

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

Now, I want to teach you the book writing process that changed my life.

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.

Get Everything You Need to Finish Your Book

Incentive. If you meet all your deadlines and finish your book, we will give you $100!

With this upgrade, we’ll team you up with one of the Story Grid certified editors on our team  to give feedback on your plan and first writing. This will make the rest of your writing process MUCH easier.

What Our Students Are Saying

A proven track record of writers finishing their books.

“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.”

Frequently Asked Questions

When do the 100 days begin?

The 100 days officially begin on September 16 and end with your finished book on December 24! However, as soon as you sign up, we’ll guide you through the preparation process, helping you hone your idea and create your book plan.

I have a finished draft of my book and need to edit it. Will this course help me?

Yes! We’ve designed 100 Day Book: Draft 2 specifically for writers who are editing their books. You’ll get all the lessons, structure, and accountability of the original 100 Day Book course, plus exclusive content focused on the editing process.

 

What if I write nonfiction?

This challenge is available to both fiction AND nonfiction writers. We’ve helped thousands of authors of both fiction and nonfiction finish their books. We would love to help you too!

What if don't live in the United States?

This course is open to all authors and aspiring authors, whether in the United States, Europe, Australia, India, or elsewhere. If you want to write a book, this course is for you.

When do the payments end?

We’ve tried to make this program affordable by breaking up the full price of the program ($588) into 12 payments that you pay once a month over 12 months.

You can also choose to save 20 percent by paying for the program in full. See the pricing section above for details.

The program is 100 days, but why are the payments are 12 months?

This program begins with 100 days—a 100 day race to finish the first draft of your book—but at the end of those 100 days, your book won’t be ready for publication. You’ll still need to edit your book and prepare for publication.

That’s where Becoming Writer, our workshopping community, comes in, where you can continue to get feedback on your manuscript for up to a year. Then, with Write to Publish, you can begin to get your book ready for publication.

When do I get my $100 back if I finish my book on time?
Participants will get $100 back if they complete their book in 100 days and get less than three strikes. The payments will be sent out about a month after the finish of the 100 days, or after 5 payments have been completed.

Still not sure?

Have a question about the program I didn’t answer above? Send me a note and I’ll get right back to you.
