Welcome, Renegade Writers!
What a treat to guest-publish "3 Pitfalls that Keep Freelancers from Landing Better Writing Assignments" on Linda Formichelli's award-winning blog for writers today. Glad you're here!
News Update: the "Two Days to Write" forum is already under way and our first group call is on Wednesday. If you are a journalist who needs to pitch new ideas or markets, why not get it done this weekend? You'll fit right in!
I hope you enjoyed my recent teleclass on making more time to write. I've got something new to offer: a brand-new group coaching program for writers who want to generate a weekend surge of creative writing or freelance marketing: Two Days to Write™.
This new group coaching program is a virtual weekend event, which means you can participate from the comfort of your home or office. I designed Two Days to Write™ to support you in creating the time, structure, mindset and support you need to set a challenging two-day writing goal and meet it.
And if you're interested, you can get started as early as next weekend: October 21-23! Otherwise, we'll also meet December 9-11.
Two Days to Write™ includes four training calls and two group accountability calls. I'm also including "open gym" call-in times, so you can access my personal coaching (1:1) throughout the weekend.
This isn't a program to teach you writing craft or marketing skills. Instead, on the training calls, we'll cover:
Wednesday (2 days before) -Topic: Get Ready. I'll show you how to clear your mind and prepare your environment for a productive two-day writing or marketing push. (Call time is 11am PT / 2pm PT.)
Friday - Topic: Get Focused. I'll walk you through a simple, step-by-step process to create a laser-sharp (and compelling) two-day writing goal. (Call time is 11am PT / 2pm PT.)
Saturday - Topic: Get Writing. Together we'll map out your two-day writing schedule, with careful attention to aligning your efforts with your goals and optimizing your physical and creative energy. (Call time is 8am PT / 11am ET.)
Sunday - Topic: Get Going. I'll show you how to create your 30-day action plan to help you sustain your momentum after your two-day intensive is over. (Call time is 9am PT / 12 noon ET.)
We'll also meet for a group check-in call on Saturday and a celebration call on Sunday. (Both calls meet at 2pm PT / 5pm ET.)
You'll have access to recordings of every training call, so if you have a scheduling conflict and can't make the calls live, you can still participate and stay current by listening to the MP3s.
You also get:
- a simple, "next-steps" coaching exercise after every training call
- templates, worksheets and simple checklists
- a personalized “Two Days to Write™ Blueprint” and 30-day action plan
- access to our private, members-only online forum
- MP3 recordings of every training call (4 hours' worth)
- access to private coaching
- two group accountability calls
- a “Focus, Write, Relax™” 60-min. productivity tutorial (MP3)
The price to attend Two Days to Write™ will be going up soon, but if you register before October 21, you can attend the writing intensive for $147.
You can also choose a "Premium" option to add two 30-minute private coaching sessions with me for just $297. This option is limited to 8 writers only, and some Premium seats for October and December have already been claimed. Please register soon if you're interested.

Thanks and I can't wait to help you move your writing career forward!
