Draft in Six

Work with Marni, the thought leader’s writing coach, in this exclusive, fast paced, action oriented program.

Are you ready to have the first draft of your book written in six months?

Think about it.  Right now you may have nothing but ideas and a blank page, yet in six months you could hold your first draft in your hands.  If you are ready to get into action and finally make it happen, your time is now.

How it works:

  • At the beginning of each week you will receive your packet that includes specific ideas to ponder and forms to fill out that will help you to conceptualize and refine your ideas.
  • At the end of the week you will have your one hour writing coach session with Marni.
  • Together you will review homework, update your progress, assess your inspiration and motivation levels and create your clear, actionable writing plan for the next week.

The 6 month Planning, Page, Polish program includes a signed copy of Marni’s book!

Is this program for me?

Are you…

  • Ready to get serious?
  • Sick of wasting time?
  • Ready to uncover and maximize your strength
  • Ready to get out of your own way?
  • Excited (and nervous) about getting into real movement?
  • Ready to put time and energy into your dream?

What you may discover:

  • It is not uncommon to figure out that you want your core idea to be stronger.
  • It’s not uncommon to create a map, then during the words on the page stage, to course correct and refine your vision.
  • It’s rarer, but some discover that they have great ideas but would prefer to hire a ghost writer to help them complete their mission.  In this case, we will create a new goal map and find the right ghost writer for you.
