As I turn off my computer for the last time before Thanksgiving I am pausing to reflect on those things and people for which I am grateful. Coming to mind pretty near the top of the list is Ginger Moran, and how lucky and happy I am that we reconnected after (gasp) over 40 years and that she is helping me realize a project I’ve want to do for longer than I am willing to admit. Steve Moriarity, author of Restitution
This program is for people
- Who have a book in their mind
- And want to get it out into the world
- Don’t want to go to graduate school
- Are ready to learn
- Are ready to get past obstacles of knowledge and habit
This program is NOT for people:
- Who lack imagination
- Or a work ethic
- Are easily daunted
- Want to compare and despair
- Have limited vision
If you are accepted, you commit to following the teaching, hearing critique, giving up limiting beliefs, and completing your book.
This is your time to write the book you have always wanted to write—and to do it right. Are you ready to become the writer you’ve always wanted to be?
Creation is the highest calling—Don’t wait any longer or waste any more time, money, or energy.
Once your eyes are open to the world of creativity and imagination, you will find the fullest possible way of living.
Have you finished your book and want a developmental edit and to chart the course for its future?
Then an Achieve Your Dream VIP Day is for you.
In a full day’s workshop, we will complete Part I and II OR Part III and IV in the 1:1 Program.
