Would you like to write a novel in 30 days?
Stefon Mears asked himself that question back in 2007, and created a training program to turn his dream into a reality. Today he writes several novels a year, dozens of short stories, and more.
In this book, he shares with you the system that started him on the road from "aspiring novelist" to "professional novelist."
Within these pages, Stefon covers
• The tools you'll need
• How to prepare
• Ideas, and how to generate them
• How to develop the habit of writing
• What to do if you get stuck
• How to write that novel in thirty days
• What to do with that novel when you're finished
• And much, much more!
Back in 2007, Stefon finished that 30-day novel in twenty-two days, and has gone on to write another two dozen, with more coming every day.
How many will you write?
