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?)
- 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?”

The program is 100 days, but why are the payments for 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.
