Write Where You Are

An empowering 4-week course + community to help your writing thrive | taught by Nicole Gulotta

Course description

[ Next Session: October 1-29,2016! ]

You don't need more time to write.
You need a sustainable writing practice.


I don't have time to write.

Have you ever uttered these six words? Thought them?

It's a common refrain for most writers. Between working full-time, raising families, packing lunches, preparing for meetings, attending events, exercise (or contemplating exercise), and myriad obligations, our desire to write is often buried deep in our hearts.

But what if there was another way?

What if instead of dreaming of writing a memoir, you wrote it?

What if instead of wishing you could start a blog and find an audience for your message, you created it?

What if you felt whole in all aspects of your life, including your writing?

The thing is, finding time to write is less about time and more about your relationship to writing.

Creating a sustainable writing practice isn't as simple as blocking off time in your calendar.

It's not about quitting your job to write full-time.

It's about getting to the root of how you became a writer in the first place, uncovering emotional blockages that keep you from the page, and honoring where you are right now.

After diving into the emotional aspects of writing, you'll leave the program with clarity on the projects you need to work on at this stage in your life, and a custom designed, sustainable writing practice that supports your writing desires.

You'll also have the opportunity to connect with fellow writers through a private and nurturing Facebook group where you'll receive additional support from Nicole during the four-week program.

Testimonials


“Write Where You Are helped me to create opportunities to integrate writing into my busy life. Nicole showed me how to do it with valuable advice, practical tools, and useful examples. The course gave me the confidence to declare that I’m a writer and make space for it without making massive changes to my current life.”

Sarah Dobson, grant writer, editor, and writing coach


"Write Where You Are helped me identify my personal obstacles to writing, and find ways to get around them. Nicole enabled me to see how small nuggets of writing time can add up to completed goals. She's been there and done it, and she shares her real life experiences. I now have a focused list of writing projects and a renewed enthusiasm to complete them."

Schedule


Week 1 | Unleash Your Calling

In Week 1 we get to the core of who you are as a writer. First, we uncover your origin story, determine the emotional obstacles that keep you from writing, and identify plus the myths that hold you back.

Week 2 | Transformative Mindset Shifts

In Week 2, you learn three essential mindset shifts to transform your relationship to your writing practice, how your career is a partner in your creativity, and tips to avoid the comparison trap.

Week 3 | The Working Writer Week

Week 3 focuses on five writing archetypes (and why none of them are useful), creates new associations with the vocation of writing, and guides you through a process of professionalizing your writing journey.

The course closes with the exact method I used to write my first book (while commuting, working full-time, and pregnant), breaks down the “I don’t have time to write” excuse, and provides a 5-step plan to create a sustainable writing practice that complements your lifestyle.
