TIRED OF THINKING ABOUT WRITING YOUR BOOK?

Good! Because it’s time to share your story.

IGNITE YOUR PASSION

You have this story burning in you for a reason. It’s meant to be told and shared. If it’s in your heart, we can relight that passion to write your story.

FIND YOUR COMMUNITY

If you’ve been working in isolation it’s no surprise you’re struggling to write your book. Writers become authors in community. We’re waiting for you!

FUEL YOUR COMMITMENT

Writing a book takes time. Having accountability makes it much easier to get your words — even the hard ones — onto the page. And I promise you, editing a ‘shitty first draft’ is easier than writing one.

FIRE UP YOUR CONFIDENCE

Every author struggles with moments when confidence wains. The solution is to listen to a more positive voice than your negative inner voice. We are those confidence-building voices.

“After a single one-on-one discussion with Donna, I realized the only thing standing between me and publishing my novel, Tiger Drive, was validation.” Teri Case
“Donna listened to my struggles, and after some brainstorming helped me break through to some new habits.” Susan Pieters.
“Donna is so open and enthusiastic that you come away with energy, ideas, tools and motivation — including the belief that your goals are attainable.” Natasha Pow

DO YOU HAVE A DREAM OF BEING AN AUTHOR?

Need a fun and simple way to reignite your bookish commitment and declare your authorly intentions? Creating your own writer’s manifesto is a great place to start.

What’s a manifesto? you ask…

Basically, it’s a declaration of what you want to achieve, what’s important to you, and what your desired future looks like. In other words, it’s a series of statements about what you would like to manifest… in this case, your completed book.

For example...

BUT… I’VE BEEN WORKING ON MY BOOK FOR MORE THAN 5 YEARS…

I’ve been a professional copy-writer for over 25 years, and it still took me 10 years to get my first novel published. I’ve worked with hundreds of writers in the last 6 years. And, in 2017, I surveyed 204 writers in my Book On Fire course and over 60% had been working on their books for more than 5 years. Thirty-five percent for 10 years or longer!

What does that tell you? Two things —

  1. Writing a book is hard work and it takes a long time — especially that first one since there’s a lot of ‘author chops’ to develop. Once you have them, though, you never lose them! That’s the good news.
  2. If your story idea has been haunting you for five years or more — it won’t stop talking to you until you share it. In the long run, holding a story inside you takes a whole lot more energy than doing the work to tell it. That’s also good news!

And there’s a third good news —

Through my interactive, online courses, my one-to-one coaching, in-person workshops, and my mastermind group, I’ve helped hundreds of writers light their books on fire — in a good way! Interested in finding out if I can help you become an author on fire?

It’s easy, free, and since I’m a stereotypical Canadian, there will be no sales pitch. Not even a polite one! So, schedule a conversation with me and let’s see what we can figure out in 30 minutes. You could be amazed!
