“100 Day Book was the oxygen I needed to breathe life into my creative outlet. It lit my candle and kept me focused on something that I didn’t think I could thrive in.”
Enrollment is closed. It will reopen in
I know how hard it is to write a book because I've been there.
My name is Joe Bunting, and I've written over a dozen 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.
Has this ever happened to you? Have you ever had a great book idea, tried to write a book, and then failed?
Then something happened:
I learned the process.
It started when I got a coach, a New York Times bestselling author. Then they gave me a proven process. Finally, I got feedback on my book by an editor who was a Wall Street Journal bestselling author.
And it worked!
I finished that book and went on to write more than a dozen more. But without that first coach, I would still be stuck today.
If you think you can write a book and learn the process on your own, you're destined to continue to fail at writing your book.
But with the right coach and the right process, you can finally experience what it's like to finish writing your book. (It's an amazing experience. Trust me.)
Want to get published?
If you're reading this, you probably already 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!”
But then life keeps getting in the way.
You're a busy person, with friends and family who need you, real life responsibilities, plus other passions and hobbies.
On top of that, writing can be hard. You run into problems like:
- Writer's block
- Running out of ideas
When all of these combine, writing can quickly become not fun.
Maybe you've tried to write a book several times and gotten thousands of words in before abandoning the process.
Maybe you're in the middle of your book right now and you don't want to fail like you have in the past.
You know you'll write a book, but maybe you worry:
“What if I never finish my book? What if I die never having accomplished my dream?”
I've felt like that before, and I don't want you to have to experience that anymore.
Now, I want to coach you to finish your book and give you my book writing process that has helped thousands of people to finish their books.

When you become a member of the 100 Day Book program, you get a proven process to write a book. But that's just the beginning.
The 100 Day Book Program includes everything you need to finish writing your book in 100 days:
100 Daily Writing Lessons
You don't want to write just any book. You want to write a great book. So to start, you'll get 100 daily lessons to inspire, educate, and encourage you as you write your best book. Even better, these lessons will be delivered in all the ways you learn best: video, audio, and written content.

Your Personal Book Coach
To get better at anything, whether getting in shape, becoming a better executive, or writing a book, you need a coach, someone who can show you the process and hold you accountable. So we'll pair you up with a book coach, an author who knows the process of writing a book. They will track your progress and check in with you weekly so we can problem solve with you and help you stay focused.
That's everything you need to write your next draft.
But what comes next?
Get Feedback On Your Writing
All writers need feedback on what's working in their writing and what's not. In our writers' workshop, you'll be able to post chapters of your book, get feedback, and learn what you need to do to make your book better and get it ready for publishing.

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.
