Be the Writer 

Writers Write About

 

 

You have talent and drive. You dream bigger than a person has a right to. Great, because that's the price of admission into any creative field.

Then comes the writing itself. It helps if yours is startlingly expressive, sly, surprising, confident and relevant. Like I like my coffee. And yet... all the talent in the world won't help if you don't have a system. 

 

Without a system that holds you accountable, motivates you and teaches you to focus, all your super-human wordsmithering will not get you seen, read, lauded or paid. Once you have a methodology, you'll need to keep up the momentum. Writer to writer, you know how very fucking hard it is to keep the momentum going.

 

Thus, The Writers' Room. Join the scriptwriters, authors and multi-hyphenate creators who make the world a more beautiful place, one word at a time. We meet weekly. We see each other at the summits and trainings. We show up and it works.

Why Aren't You Writing?

 

Do you always feel like you should be doing more?

Do you want to make more money with your god-given talent?

Do you want to finish the script, land the job or win over the client?

How strong are your habits and rituals?

How mentally and emotionally strong is that gorgeous brain of yours?

Have you taken endless courses, summits, masterclasses and challenges but still aren’t moving forward?

In my 30 years of experience, I've learned to not go it alone. Stop lone-wolfing it. You’re not a wolf. Unless you are and then this isn’t for you, but bravo on your tech skills.
