So many writers think: "I wish I could write more."

  • Write Faster

    You can write faster and finish your book quicker.

  • Write Every Day

    You can gain the discipline to write every single day.

  • Finish Your Book

    You can learn to avoid procrastination and bad habits that suck up your time.

Writers are Swamped

Which means they don't finish that book, they don't write as quickly as they want, and they don't get published.

But they need to write more often...

Because time spent writing predicts a writer's success more than any other variable.

That's why I created this course: "Master Your Writing Habits"

This course will help you write more than you ever have before. For the next month, the next few months, or the next year, you will be on fire for writing. You'll set your distractions aside and embrace the creative life. You'll wonder: why didn't I ever do this before? All you have to do is commit to doing the principles in this course.

By the end of this course you will:

  • Have found the discipline and the courage to write more than you've ever dreamed

  • Be much closer to finishing your book and holding it in your hands

  • Have a plan to maximize your writing time

  • Understand how to create writing habits and goals

  • Be a writing powerhouse

Bonus material

  • Earn a Certificate

    When you finish the course, you will earn a completion certification that shows you've mastered your writing time.

  • Access to Instructor

    If you have any questions about the course content, you can post a question within the course and I'll answer it for you.

  • Downloadable PDFs

    To help you with mastering your writing time, you can download resources which you can consult at any time.

FAQ

  • Is there a time limit for this course?

    No, you can take it at your own pace. You get access for a whole year.

“I found this course changed the way I approached my writing time and goals. The Triple Reward System and Sacrifice for Your Writing lessons were game changers for me. I appreciate John's videos and how he structured the course. It's not boring so I looked forward to each of the lessons. The PDFs were also really helpful. I review them often. If you want to improve your use of time and set goals for writing, I highly recommend this course. ”

“I was having a a difficult time writing a short story and several of your lessons helped me immensely. Specifically, tracking my time, setting writing goals, and the truth about procrastination. Those lessons specifically addressed the problems I was experiencing. I also liked the fact that all the lessons were clear, concise and to the point. I was able to watch the entire course in a day and have re-watched sections of them since. I would recommend the course to anyone who is starting out in their writing life.”

“My friend bought me this course as a milestone birthday gift and I didn't know what to expect. Part of me thought I would just hear a bunch of things I've heard before about how to make my writing a daily habit, but would never apply the tools. The other part was wanting to hear what John had to say and was hungry to master my writing time. This course not only taught me things I had not considered about my perspective on my writing, but also gave me tangible tasks in order to make writing a daily habit. And yeah, there were some things that felt like I heard before, but John presented them with such freshness and backed up the approaches with solid evidence in each of his video presentations. But the proof is in the pudding - I did ALL the work outside of the course and am now writing daily! The course has so many gems of wisdom and takeaways that I almost don't want to give them away in this review - you just have to trust me, it's worth every dime and every minute you put into participating. Thank you, John. And thank you to my dear friend who gave this to me as a gift! ”
