DO FRIENDS & FAMILY FIND YOU QUIRKY?

 

 

An (honest) word from Mary:

 

Before I discovered other writers, I thought I was a bit crazy. I didn’t understand those who could take or leave writing. For me? Writing was the way I processed the world, how I healed from a difficult past. 

 

When I went to my first writers critique group, terror lived beneath the surface. I’d spent so much time behind my computer that the thought of sharing my work with others both terrified and intrigued me. I left my first writer meeting with elation! I was NORMAL, at least in terms of other writers. I received valuable feedback I couldn’t have received toiling behind my keyboard, and I realized I was not alone.

 

If you’ve ever felt this way, there is hope. I’ve created these small (maximum ten person) masterminds to give you both community and the expertise you need to make a difference in this world with your words. Join me and discover how God intersects your words with the needs of this world. Find your place at the writer table and join a Writer Mastermind today!

  • How to research, organize, and attribute quotes and sources
  • Uncovering a you-shaped project and time management system
  • Why you need both Macro and line editing, and how to do both
  • What kinds of marketing, promotion, and PR actually move book sales
  • How to build an email distribution list with ease
  • The optimal way to move books as a speaker
  • The why and how of focused writing time
  • Why uncovering a metaphor for your book will change everything
  • When to hire experts and when to do the work yourself
  • Best ways to secure a literary agent and traditional publisher
  • Or, how to self publish your work with ease and peace (without getting scammed)
  • What social media platforms work best for your personality and type of book
  • The peace-filled way of building a platform that makes sense to your life and daily habits
