Keep checking back or join on mailing list
to be the first to hear about our 2022 conference!

……………………………..

Does this sound like you?

  • You have a book idea, but you don’t know where to start.
  • You’ve started your book but stalled in the muddy middle.
  • You’ve rewritten the first couple of chapters over and over but have gotten no further.

Or do you wonder…

  • Is it worth my time to write a book?
  • Will anyone want to read what I have to say?
  • Will I be able to figure out how to get it published even if I can write it?

Sign up for our FREE virtual conference
January 3-7, 2022

You’ll get two videos a day delivered straight to your inbox. THEN, we’ll be playing the videos during LIVE watch parties in a private Facebook group so the coaches at THE NARRATIVE PROJECT can be with you to answer your questions and cheer you on in your commitment to…Write That Book Already!

Why invest your time in writing a book when the world is on fire?

Whoever controls STORY is in charge of the meaning-making we do…

…in our lives…in our societies. YOUR story offers a way of making meaning that only you can bring into the world. Only YOU can write THIS story—the one you have in your heart which will enlighten, heal, inform, or entertain others.

But getting YOUR story…

  • Out of your body
  • Onto the page
  • Into the hands of the people who need it

…is on YOU. And the journey from book idea to book-in-your-hand can be daunting.

But it doesn’t have to be.

If you need INSPIRATION, CLARITY, AND MOTIVATION, join us in our Write That Book Already! Virtual Conference.

Why haven’t you written that book already?

If you’re like most of the would-be authors, it’s because you need some answers to some of the following questions:

 

  • How do I get myself to sit and write?
  • What do I do with my manuscript once I’ve got it written?
  • Why does MY particular story matter so much that I should write it NOW?
  • What are the best strategies for getting past my writing blocks?
  • Is it selfish to spend the time to write a book? AND how can I write this book with kids underfoot or the pressures of my job keeping me so busy?
  • How can I tap into MY best creative process?
  • How can I know if my book is relevant?
  • How can contests and reviews help me get my book into the hands of my ideal readers?
  • How can I get in the right mindset to push past my inner critic?
  • How can I get the support and accountability I need to keep going even on the hard days?
  • How can my writing be a light in the world right now?
  • Why should I think about my author’s platform and marketing even while I’m writing and how can building that platform encourage me to get your book done?

Speakers

Our panelists are among the most encouraging and knowledgeable BOOK PEOPLE in the world.

If you have a book in you, you don’t want to miss this!
You’ll walk away inspired, motivated, and COMMITTED to Write That Book Already!!!
