Putting Together a Writing Course

It’ such a rad process!

After putting together ideas and outlines for content, I have officially started filming content for How to Write a Book in 3 Months — my new writing course designed for nonfiction authors!

As I crafted this course, I’ve been creating handouts to go along with each week’s topics, filming content, creating a small intro logo, and editing it all into a video! I also uploaded the videos to YouTube, my first time ever doing so.

I am so excited about this course.

The further into it I get, the more I enjoy it and get inspired. The entire process has been incredibly inspiring.

Of course, it is also difficult at times.

I agonize over how to price it. I want it to be fair and competitive, but not too cheap. If it’s too cheap, then my own time won’t be well compensated and many people may assume it is not very good because it is “cheap.” If it’s too expensive, people will question the value and wonder who am I to charge them so much.

But the process has been enlightening. I give away so much information for free in different ways and seeing it all come together in a way that is truly preparing people to write a manuscript and looking at things like perspectives, tone, messaging, and more is so interesting and exciting for me.

When it comes to the content, I spent so much time creating outlines and plans and making sure I was giving the authors the information they truly needed to be able to write their books. I am trying to cover everything from introduction to conclusion, dedication to author bio.

I am about halfway done with filming the video content for my course, and with each one I film, edit, and post, I get more excited to work with authors and help them truly bring their visions to life. I’ve done it one on one so many times and now I am finally ready to step into a group setting.

I’ve always loved teaching writers and sharing my knowledge and learning from them, too. This truly feels like a natural next step!

If you are a nonfiction writer and are interested in How to Write a Book in 3 Months, feel free to sign up for my mailing list specifically for this course. I will be sending out (not spamming and not often) information on start dates and pricing and what you will learn in the course.

This new path in my career is extremely satisfying! I am so excited to finally be realizing this dream!

As a side note, since I work from home, I tend to be makeup-free and wear the same general clothing. For the video content, I have been being SO CAREFUL to be wearing different clothes and have some makeup on! It’s so funny to think about that stuff — but I don’t want to look like I threw together the the videos in 15 minutes after rolling out of bed!
