Simple Strategies You Can Start Using Today to 2x Your Writing Productivity

 

How would you feel if you could?

  • Write twice as much as you do now...in half the time?
  • Get into the "writing zone" effortlessly every single day?
  • Feel inspired to write every time you sit down?
  • Easily meet all of your writing deadlines?
  • Write more books per year?

I used to struggle to stay focused and be productive every day. But after years of researching and experimenting with all different kinds of productivity strategies, techniques and tools, I’ve managed to curate an extensive list of “hacks” that have helped me become a more productive writer.

How productive?

IN ONE YEAR, I WROTE 4 NOVELS (over 350,000 words) AND A SCREENPLAY...

IN LESS THAN 12 MONTHS!

When I tell people this, they usually say something like...

"How do you find the time???"

But in actuality, it's not about the amount of writing time you have, it's how you use that time.

I WRITE 4+ BOOKS A YEAR...WRITING ONLY 2-3 HOURS A DAY!

In this course, I teach you how to minimize the time you put in, while maximizing what you get out, so you can get the most out of every writing day.

I’ve been writing professionally for over 10 years and here’s what I’ve discovered about the creative process:

Our brains are like computers. They can do amazing things but they can also get bogged down by all the various programs we open during the day. With all these other programs eating up RAM in our brains, we barely have any processing power left to do what we writers love to do: write!

Which is why I developed this course: to teach you my tried and true strategies, tips, tools, and techniques for eliminating distractions, freeing up brain processing power, and focusing your attention and energy on what’s most important, so you can get more done, in less time.

I call these strategies: PRODUCTIVITY HACKS. Because similar to how our brain functions like a computer, we can also hack it like a computer. We can apply simple yet effective tricks to BOOST BRAIN FUNCTION, INCREASE FOCUS, BE MORE INSPIRED, and WRITE MORE!
