The Everyday Writer’s Retreat

Your Fail-Proof Plan For Finding the Time to Write

“You can’t wait for inspiration.
You have to go after it with a club.” –Jack London

You’re a writer, you love to write. But those stretches between writing sessions keep getting longer.

You don’t have time. You’re feeling stuck. You aren’t even sure what to write about.

smilingwriterEvery writer experiences this kind of block from time-to-time. But what if every time you sat down to write you felt the flow and truly enjoyed the experience?

What’s holding you back?

Professional writers build writing into their lives in ways that are fun and effective. They nourish their creativity often and have processes around collecting and creating ideas.

You, too, can find ways to sneak writing in. It’s easier than you think.

Join us for a three-session exploration of where ideas come from and how to make the most out of your writing time.

We’ll show you how to turn your life into a everyday writing retreat where the ideas are always flowing and you have tools for breaking through creative blocks.

You will walk away from this program with:

  • More confidence as a writer
  • An idea vetting process you can use over and over
  • Methods for pushing through times when the writing isn’t flowing
  • Tools for dealing with feelings of stuck-ness and procrastination
  • A fail-proof plan for making the most out of limited writing time
  • A writing space that will help you be more productive
  • A few short writing pieces that you can choose to continue working on

“Everyone needs a Suzanne in their life! She helped me stay on task and brought out the best in my writing. Her coaching techniques helped me become a better writer and create a beautiful book that will be distributed worldwide.”–Christine Egan, author of The Healthy Girl’s Guide to Breast Cancer

Because we want this workshop experience to be like a private writing retreat, we’re only opening 10 spots. Once they’re filled, the doors are closed and we will open a wait list for next time around.

If you know you want one of the 10 spots, grab yours today!


BONUS: We’ve added a private Facebook group, so everyone can interact one-on-one with us, and each other, throughout the workshop.

During This Virtual Writing Retreat You Will Get…

Guidance and support from two writing coaches, who are published authors and know the guts it takes to sit down and write from the heart, even when the laundry is piling up.

While we won’t be whisking you away to a beautiful beach location (this time), we want you to rest assured that each call will be packed with exercises and writing prompts to get you in the flow. You will also receive an Everyday Writing Retreat Action Guide to use in your real life so that ideas in your head will easily flow to the page.

“I was battling two major  demons:  fear and procrastination.  Like a lot of writers, I can be quite adept at finding ways to put off sitting down at the page. Jen’s incredible knack for mixing kick-in-the-ass calls to action with compassion got me past my blocks, and I am well into my first novel that I plan to finish by summer’s end.  I’ve also learned how to stick to a writing schedule for the first time in my life!”–Mary DeRosa Hughes 

Are you ready to create your fail-proof plan for finding writing time in your busy life? Then we’d love for you to join us for this virtual writing retreat!
