DO YOU HAVE A BOOK IN YOU, WAITING TO COME OUT?
My online course 7 Steps to Turn Your Story Into a Book is designed to help you write a first draft of your book (or a solid rewrite if you already have a draft) even if you don't consider yourself a writer--even it you've never written anything! Focusing on the important elements of storytelling, the steps in this seven-week course are lessons that systematically prepare you to sit down and write, so when that time comes you know how to start your manuscript, keep writing, and finish your book.
I know not everyone who wants to write their story can afford to hire a private story consultant. So I've taken my story development process that I use with my private clients and created an affordable online course that teaches you how to structure your story and write it from beginning to end, breaking it down into these seven steps:
Step 1) Find the Message of Your Story
Get clear on the wisdom you want to share.
Step 2) Build Your Story's Structure
Structure your story with a beginning, middle, and end that makes sense, flows, and supports your message
Step 3) Summarize Your Story
Learn how to professionally summarize your story, because if you can't tell it in 750 words, you can't do it in 200 pages.
Step 4) Create Your Story's Outline
Learn how to create a professional story outline that you can actually use to keep you on track while you write.
Step 5) Write Your Story's Introduction
Learn how write your backstory so you know exactly where to start your story in your book.
Step 6) Prepare to Write
Learn how to set up a professional, dedicated writing space and rituals that actually encourage you to write.
Step 7) Write Your Book Manuscript
Learn how to plan your writing schedule into your busy life (just like you would an exercise program) so you find time to write.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS
To provide options that fit every budget, I offer my 7 Steps to Turn Your Story Into a Book online course at three price points;
- Silver ($297)
- Gold ($597)
- Platinum ($897)
The Silver option is the simplest and most affordable way to ease into writing your story. The course is completely online and has seven self-paced lessons (referred to as "Steps," as shown above) that are released to you weekly. You can sign up any time you like (there is no stop and start schedule), and when you do, the first Step is available to you the moment you sign up. After that, each new Step is released to you in one-week increments. (You do not have to complete one Step to receive the next, but it's better if you complete a Step before you progress to the next.)
So, for example, if you signed up on a Tuesday, you'd immediately receive the first Step, and then after that a new Step would be released to you every Tuesday, for the next seven weeks (Step 7 being the last lesson). Each Step has videos, exercises, and handouts that walk you through the process of developing your story, so that you have clarity when it comes time for you to write your manuscript in Step 7.
