8-Week: Getting It Done—96 Hours Toward a Finished Draft

$250.00 Members
$310.00 Non-members

Every writer has the same goal: I’m going to finish my draft … soon. Then we get distracted. Before we know it, “soon” becomes “later” and our draft still isn’t done. This eight-week, 96-hour intensive writing experience is your chance to flip the script.

Using the Pomodoro Technique, a proven time-management system that keeps you focused and driven, you will commit yourself to distraction-free writing for eight “pomodoros” per day, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for eight weeks. Over the course of the guided intensive, the repetition of this technique will strengthen your writing habits, help you become more productive, and change the way you think about writing time—all while you make progress toward a finished draft.

The intensive includes 96 hours of regimented writing over eight weeks; daily writing prompts (if you want/need them); Friday group check-ins to discuss process and progress; help with goal-setting and accountability; use of the Lighthouse attic for writing during business hours; and the inspiration of fellow writers in the trenches.

Attendance each day is not required, but is encouraged. Please note that is not a class or a workshop; rather, it is guided time to help you get the writing done.
