What If You Could Take a Whole Day to Focus on Your Writing?
Imagine what you could accomplish!
Let's face it, writing requires concentration. But life can be noisy, distracting, and complicated a lot of the time. The phone rings, the kids scream, the dog barks, your email program beeps incessantly. Being connected and "on" 24/7 is a major creativity killer.
No wonder, you didn't get to your writing!
We did a survey of writers and asked what their biggest struggles are. We received an overwhelming response.
Here's what you told us:
But you want to know what the biggest complaint is?
You've probably read it before, but the only difference between people who get big writing projects done (like books) and those who don't is that published authors don't find time to write; they make time.
If you have a writing task that you never get to or that has completely stalled out, I encourage you to give your creativity the gift of time.
Think of How Much Writing You Could Do
What if you spent a whole day focused on nothing but your writing and YOU? How much could you accomplish?
You'd have time to:
I've discovered in my own writing that the best way to get past writer's block is to write something. The longer it has been since I've written, the harder it is to "get back into it."
Now you may be wondering why you can't just set aside some time and do it yourself.
Yes, you could. But when you do, what really happens?
Why Setting Aside Writing Time Hasn't Worked
Maybe you've decided you're going to write at a certain time. You dutifully put it in your online scheduler and when the little alarm goes off, you:
Scheduling sounds great, but as Dr. Phil would say, "how's that working out for you?"
If your answer is, "it isn't," here's another option...
Introducing the Virtual Writer's Retreat
Because I live in a remote cabin in the woods, it's easier for me to just "turn off the world" than it is for some people.
Many people go off to writing retreats to get something done. But it can be expensive both time and money-wise to get away to a beautiful resort somewhere.
So I came up with the next best thing: a Virtual Writing Retreat!
You can choose from 2 dates:
Mark your calendar for:
November 11, 2011
The Virtual Writer's Retreat is designed for book authors, bloggers, business owners and other people who know they "should" be writing something, but haven't made the time to make it happen.
Invest a day with me, and I'll give you secrets to help you get over your writer's block and get going again.
During the Virtual Writer's Retreat, you'll receive:
But more than that, you'll have the support and motivation of other writers and me.
Having supportive people all focused on your success giving you encouragement for an entire day is a powerful thing!
“Being in a group with Susan Daffron is like having the guru of self-publishing and book and online marketing as a best friend you can turn to when you need support, information and inspiration. ”
How it Works
The first thing you get to do is make a commitment to your writing for just one day. Dedicate the entire day on your calendar and pretend that you are driving somewhere far away where there is limited access to email or phone.
If you want to spend your retreat at the local coffee shop, that's fine with me. Whatever it takes. If you need to hire a babysitter or virtual assistant for a few hours, DO it.
The key is to get away from your regular routine so you can get something done.
When you're settled in and ready to go, here's the schedule (US Pacific time).
8 am - 8:45: Kick-off call where you can share your goals for the day.
9 am - noon - Go forth and write something!
12:15 - 1 pm: Check in call. I'll be on hand to answer questions and offer moral support.
1 - 3 pm - Go forth and write some more!
3:15 - 4 pm: Wrap up call. Share your successes with everyone.
Throughout the day, a private support forum will also be available to you, where you can post questions, so you don't get stuck. I'll be on hand to give you feedback and advice. Stuck on a headline? Log in and run it by me. Then go write more.
The idea is to keep your momentum going on whatever writing project you choose.
“What a great mentoring resource! Susan answers almost immediately and I'm on my way with expert help.
How Much Does It Cost?
Normally one-to-one consulting with me for hour is a $197 investment, but you'll get access to me all day for just $77. (Since this is our first retreat, this is an introductory price; I doubt it will be this low again.)
To recap, you receive:
We're limiting each retreat to just 10 people, so you'll get as much personal attention as you want over the course of the day. How often do you have the opportunity to get personal writing coaching for such an affordable rate?
If you ever wished you had an experienced, writer, editor, and marketer "on call" for a whole day, here's your big chance.
Sign up now!
When you click one of the buttons, we'll ask you to create an account with a username and password you can use to log into the discussion area during your retreat day. The next page asks for payment and you'll receive an email confirmation when you're signed up and ready to go!
I hope you'll join us!
