Get it written!

You’ve got important stuff to write. Blog posts, articles, an online course, an ebook, maybe even a full-length book. But when can you find the time? And what’s in your way? Let us help you get past all that and make it happen!

In one day of concentrated writing, with C.J. as your writing coach and the support of fellow writers, you’ll be able to:

  • Set aside dedicated time to work on your writing project(s)
  • Experience a writing retreat from the comfort of your home, office or local café
  • Share tips for overcoming procrastination, writer’s block, self-sabotage, perfectionism, and fear of exposure
  • Gain accountability to keep your focus on writing and avoid distractions
  • Celebrate the day’s achievements with a supportive group of peers
  • Transform writing from a solitary struggle into an enjoyable activity done in community

Margie BeiswangerI loved the writing retreat! I drafted three complete blog posts/articles of about 1000 words each and had time to do some editing, as well. It gave me dedicated time to write, with group support. I enjoyed the check-in calls. It felt very satisfying to have three solid chunks of time to write in a single day!

About the program

On each Get It Written Day, we’ll have three 90-minute writing sprints — four-and-a-half hours of writing. In between, we’ll have learning and sharing sessions, where we’ll discuss overcoming barriers to writing, how to build quality writing time into your life, and celebrate your accomplishments for the day. (Yes, there will be breaks, too.) I’ll send you in advance preparation tips to help you take the most advantage of the day. You’ll be energized, supported, and get stuff written!

You can sign up for the next Get It Written Day individually, or to create more accountability for yourself and make a firm commitment to your writing (as well as save money), purchase three retreat days in the series at once.

Structure + Support + Dedicated Time = Completed Writing!

C.J. HaydenIn a 1-on-1 session of writing coaching with me, I’ll help you use your writing to get clients more effectively, overcome barriers to writing and publishing your best stuff, and create support structures to keep you writing beyond Get It Written Day. Here’s some of the issues we might address:

  • Zero in on the best audience for your writing
  • Choose overall themes or individual topics for your blog, articles or ebook
  • Invent a lead magnet to help you attract more subscribers
  • Critique your current blog or article library
  • Brainstorm how and where to best publish or promote your existing content
  • Design support structures to keep you writing and publishing consistently
  • Determine the appropriate next steps for your writing

Each video or phone session is 30 minutes long, and takes place during one of the Get It Written Day writing sprints or before/after the program. Just register at the bottom of the page and you’ll be able to see what times are available and reserve your time.

These discounted sessions are only available during Get It Written Day, so don’t miss your chance to register!

How we’ll meet

The Get It Written Day program will take place as a webinar on Zoom. You will be able to listen, speak, and ask questions, no matter where you are, by joining the Zoom session from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. If you don’t have Internet access that day, you can call instead from a regular landline or cell phone. I’ll share visual aids with you online, or if you are calling by phone, you can download them in advance and follow along. This easy-to-use webinar approach will give you a rich, interactive experience.

Caitlin FaasI wrote 2,525 new words of content for a professional book review… It was so refreshing to commit myself to dedicated time and actually follow through on it. The regular breaks and check-ins really helped me stay accountable without drifting… It’s a day that realigns your focus on writing with accountability from a professional coach and colleagues to help cheer you on.
