How We Kill The Internal Editor

Give me a month and I’ll give you a writer who knows her worth, writes shit she loves and takes time to consistently improve her craft.

It’s called Write Raw and I just dropped the price – as well as the number of clients I work with each month. And soon, it’ll be gone forever.

That means it’s cheaper, but it’s also limited to three clients a month until the spring – when I take it off the market completely.

Because an infinite number of writers evidently need this service (more than two dozen signed up since this program launched in May). Because I am one person and cannot give YOU 150 percent if I’m spread too thin. Because I’m working on a new self-study offering I hope to release before spring that will replace this program.

What do we do in Write Raw?

Shake shit up.

Brainstorm, re-work, get inspired and unblocked. Professional tips and tricks? Sure-fire methods to get and keep you on track? No problem. You learn how to laser-focus your work, believe in yourself and your words, and fully understand the concept of “No one can tell the story like you.” (Thank you, Michael Xavier.)

The Proof

“You gave me courage to believe that I really could do it.”

“Without you, I wouldn’t be where I am in my writing. I still don’t know where I’m headed, but I am following through with something I have wanted to do for a really long time. And I am forever grateful you are here to help me realize my dreams.”

“The level of honest, straightforward, technical and emotional support was huge.”

“I love Becky’s no-nonsense attitude, as well as the fact that she didn’t try to change my voice. She worked with me to tease out the best story I could write without making me feel bruised and abused, like other editors have.”

Remember last year, when you said you were going to find some time to write your novel? Well, 2014 is a few days away. Ninety-eight percent of the population will never pull this off.

I want you to be among the elite 2 percent.

So what’s your story? And how fucking amazing would it feel to put it on the page? To actually write that book?

You can do it. I’ll show you how.

“Your personal touch, honest feedback, the quality of the edits – it felt more like working with a concerned friend than a business.”

“It’s pretty incredible. You helped me get out of my way. I would not be as far with my current novel without the you.”

“My voice got stronger and my writing became clearer with your help.”

“You’re forthright but respectful of the writer’s choices and intentions. . . It felt like you had an interest in me as a writer and my success.”

This year, let’s give the naysayers the finger and impress the hell out of everyone – especially YOU. Click that big pink button to read more about Write Raw and what we can do for you and your words. Again, this is limited to three clients a month until spring, and then it’s gone for good.

Write. Now.

7 Things Every Writer Wants for Christmas

Writers are a persnickety bunch. Easy to annoy. Quietly correcting your grammar during every conversation. Unable to read something as trivial as a Facebook status without mentioning your shitty spelling. We know we do this. We can’t help it.

But we’re great to have around for an epic Scrabble match, or to prep for your son’s spelling bee, OR to compose a Dear John diatribe that undercuts everything your soon-to-be ex stands for. Bonuses.

If you’re lucky enough to have a writer in your life – because she hasn’t yet driven you away with unending sarcasm, laced with big words meant to make you feel inferior – here’s a handy gift guide for Christmas, complete with affordable items we starving artists can buy ourselves. <– Longest sentence ever? Don’t care.

  • How about a leather journal? You can’t have that one because I already bought it. Writers love leather and moleskin. I recommend Etsy because most items are handmade and one of a kind.
  • Pens. We never have enough. And we need them for the leather journals. We especially love them with witty phrases – and swearing. (Or maybe that’s just me.)
  • Homemade vouchers or coupons for distraction-free writing time. One of the best gifts I ever received from my little darlings was a book of coupons for hours – plural – to do what I love undisturbed. I used every last one long before the year was up.
  • A sign for his office when he’s writing. Mine looks like this. I recommend every writer have one and explain to each family member what it means when the sign is up: “Don’t bother me unless it’s an emergency.” You will also have to explain what can and cannot be deemed an emergency.
  • A thesaurus with a knife through it, so when she goes to grab it to find that “perfect” word, she will remember that the perfect word is in her head and nowhere else. See?
  • I have stuff for writers, too. The POSTER has been popular (now in its sixth printing). Check that out here.
  • And I have books. Find ’em on Amazon if you’re so inclined. For a change, this isn’t about me, so I’m not including the link.

That’s it. Useful, direct, kinda sexy. Now go finish your shopping.
