WAKE UP & WRITE: A Daily Writing Accountability Group

Not every writer needs to write every day, but often, the most successful writers do engage in a daily practice. And there’s a wonderful thing that happens when you perform a task over and over until it becomes habit: you get better at it.

For the months of July and August, commit to writing every day with me from 8 to 9 a.m. There will be a daily prompt for those in need, special guests weekly to inspire us and a time for those who wish to share and/or ask questions from 9 to 9:30 a.m.

Additional materials will be shared for writers hoping for that extra bit of motivation, like daily tasks to complete during our off-line hours and curated written, audio and video writing advice from bestselling authors.

Whether you’ve got one big project or multiple, a tight deadline or all the time in the world, sign up and let’s show ourselves and one another that we’re committed to our craft and the stories that only we can tell.

Member price: $25 / month or $45 for both months

Non-member price: $40 / month or $75 for both months
