The Write

Want to Learn to Write? Want to Be a Better Writer? Want to Write a Book? The Write is a great place to start.

Many people want to write a book. Many people who want to write a book never do. I was one of those. I even told people I was writing a book. I just didn't tell them it was only true in my mind. It occurred to me that there might be others in the same situation. So here is my share. I now love writing. And it inspires me to even greater heights. It has given me the confidence to do other things as well.

The Write Practice is a great place to start.

I wanted to write a book. I knew nothing about writing or how to write a book. I took a course Write a Book in 100 Days online presented by The Write and did it! Their instruction, their follow up, their support was beyond what I expected. They provide daily lessons, a mentor, and a community of others writers to both critique (and learn from others) and get feedback from. I cannot recommend it enough. For me, it was more than a skill, it was finding a part of me I never knew I had, helping me to become more fully human as we like to say here. They also offer a lot of free resources all year long (your membership will last one year). Here is one of those great free resources they offer and it will give you an idea of what they offer free. — David Durovy (I am not an affiliate and receive no compensation from them)

The Magic Bullet of Writing by Joe Bunting of The Write Practice

Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a "magic bullet" of storytelling?

You know what I mean. One big secret, the missing key that makes all your stories thrilling and your writing process a breeze.

Sad news: there’s not a magic bullet. But you probably knew that already.

That said, there are some fundamental storytelling truths that great writers have known for hundreds of years. And these truths, when you master them, have the power to transform your writing.

I know, because they transformed mine.

I’ve spent the last decade studying storytelling principles: the rise and fall of stories, what makes the perfect climax, how to set that up from the start and resolve it at the end. That study has helped me go from a struggling writer who couldn’t finish one book to the WSJ-bestselling author and ghostwriter of thirteen books.

Starting tomorrow, I’m hosting a free, LIVE training on the story structure principles bestselling writers rely upon—and how you can apply them to your writing right away.

Will you join me this week? It’s completely free, and you can pick the time that works best for you: [If the dates have passed, go ahead and sign up for the future free classes and resource offerings. You will not be disappointed. — The LoveMore Institute]

Whether you’re dreaming up a new book idea or halfway through your second draft, you’ll learn clear, actionable story truths that will help you write your best book.

And of course, the joy of a virtual training like this is the live Q&A at the end, where I’ll answer your storytelling questions.

This is one of my favorite writing topics (and arguably the one that’s had the most impact on my own writing), and I can’t wait to share it with you.

See you there,
