Write your book - start right NOW! When you write a nonfiction book, you have the unique opportunity to change the lives of others by sharing your personal experiences and hard-won expertise. Perhaps you’re a business leader who has invested in others, and you've witnessed their personal and professional growth. Maybe you’re a life coach seeking to transform the lives of a greater number of people through your techniques. Your legacy may be strong, and yet, it is limited to those you can personally reach.
You wonder, “How can I impact more people?”
Does this sound like you? What can you share with others that will impact their lives and careers? You can extend your reach and leave an even greater legacy if you share your accumulated wisdom, knowledge, and philosophies in a book. You’re the only one who has your story. You’re the only one who can do it!

Some writing coaches suggest that you can write your book in ninety days, or in one month, or even in a weekend. That is not my approach. It takes a lot of thought and effort to construct a quality product, and that takes time. I want to help you through each step of that journey with my Group Self-Directed Writing Program.

What You Can Expect
If you've been looking for a step-by-step program that will take you from your initial idea to a finished manuscript, then this program is for you! There are three modules and each lasts 14 weeks:
Module One: From Concept to Concrete Plan
You only have to have an idea to get started, and in this step-by-step process we take your idea and develop it for the specific market you want to reach.
In Module One, we work together to build the foundation of your book, crystallize your message, and then build out two BookMAPs, which are the visual representation of everything that will be in your book. Once you have these BookMAPs, we will write your book brick by brick in Modules Two and Three.
Module One also teaches you about the overall publishing process, and you will complete some preliminary exercises to prime the market to receive your book.
At the end of Module One, you will have detailed BookMAPS to follow when you write and a framework marketing plan.

Module Two: Write Without the Ruts
Now that you have your completed BookMAPs from Module One, you have a concrete plan for writing your book. In Module Two, you use those BookMAPs to build your book brick by brick and produce your first draft.
This is where I put on my "professor" hat and teach you how to write compelling creative nonfiction. You will receive valuable writing instruction, and I will also introduce you to some fantastic tools writing tools that accelerate the process and keep your manuscript organized.
This is where we pour everything out and get it all down on paper, share your writing with your fellow participants and gain valuable feedback.
At the end of Module Two, you will have completed the first draft of your manuscript.
NEXT STOP: MODULE THREE
Module Three: Polish & Perfect
In Module Three: Polish and Perfect, you begin the challenging work of making your manuscript ready for publication. All of our time is devoted to polishing your work and getting it as close to perfect as you can before you engage a professional editor to give it that final spit-shine.
And get ready to read and re-read your manuscript, because we will do that a total of five times — and two of those readings will be out loud. If you want your book to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the other great books on the market, the key is in the editing. We will spend some time expanding your scenes and then divide your manuscript in sections to do the granular editing to activate the language, ensure consistency, balance the message, and polish the grammar and punctuation.
At the end of Module Three, you will have a manuscript that you developed, organized, wrote, and polished. You will have finished writing your book!
