Get started on your book
and avoid stupid time-wasting, costly mistakes!

The typical journey for first time authors:

 

“I’m going to write a book.. starting today!” 

“Well great – you’ve been thinking about it for long enough – get going.”

So, you sharpen your pencils, ink up the fancy new fountain pen you bought specially, open your beautiful new journal, create a separate file on your computer, shuffle your crisp white note paper, then you stare at your  screen after the first two paragraphs. You might write a whole page… two even.  Then you fiddle with it noticing mistakes along the way.  Finally you  berate yourself for getting distracted, then go pour yourself another coffee and return to your desk with so much enthusiasm and ‘readiness’ you’re on fire for the rest of the day. You might even have a few days like this. Maybe you’ll get your first very long chapter done and print it out, give it to your best friend to read, and wait anxiously for feedback. But… He or she doesn’t laugh, they smile (because they love you!) encouragingly so you keep going.

 

Then it’s time to seek a Publisher… maybe!

 

If and when you eventually finish the book, you seek a publisher, and that’s when you get your first in a series of big reality checks. It needs a LOT of work, that manuscript you sweated over for the last few months. A. LOT!!!  With three exclamation marks!

There’s a LOT more to writing a book than most people realise when first starting out – so we’ve decided to make it significantly easier for the enthusiastic ready-to-dive-in authors among you. We’ve created a way for you to get started, and finish a manuscript that needs a whole lot less ‘work’ than one that doesn’t skip through the first two critical steps. 

It’s time to PREPARE for your writing journey.

BEFORE you write your book – there are some things to do – and sharpening your pencils not included.

In this three week course, we’re going to get you ready to write your book.

You’ll Discover:

How to plan a great manuscript,

For the market who really wants to read it,

In a way that helps them to finish reading it,

How to ‘create a great finish point’ for ending each chapter,

and then take action – how you want them to.

“I’ve written several books already and have found that Dixie’s process for planning my next book was a fresh and different way to make the writing process clear and achievable. It’s like ticking off the boxes of what’s done rather than trying to sort through a mess of ideas.”
