Refine + Write
Where we help you hone your vision and start writing the first draft…
During the first phase of this four-month program, we drill down into your “why.” Why do you want to write? Who is your audience? What is the ultimate goal for your book?
Without that clarity, your writing would just wander around. With it, we move forward to help you write the first draft. This is the secret sauce of our method, developed specifically for people who don’t consider themselves to be writers — although technically, they write fairly often — or who have the book in their head and can’t seem to get it down on paper.
We start with your outline and spend 4 – 5 interviews talking you through your outline and the content of your book. These interviews are transcribed and we edit them, turning conversation into writing style. This effectively eliminates writer’s block since you now have a first draft in hand. This process is typically completed within the first 4 – 6 weeks of the program.
With the first draft in hand, you take a huge leap forward and begin to revise your work. This is when you begin to feel like you’re actually writing a book!
We continue to walk you through the stages until you complete the book’s final draft and the goal is to complete this by the end of the third month of the program. As we begin to finalize the content, we start working on design and promotion.
