Write Your Book in 26 Days (And Live to Tell About It)

By Rochelle Melander

Format: Paperback

SKU# W4473

Write-A-Thon is the first book to present an easy-to-use guide to how to begin writing a book--fiction or nonfiction--in a twenty-six day 'marathon.' The life skills, performance techniques, and writing tools presented in Write-A-Thon are based on scientifically validated research from positive psychology, inspiration from the world of marathon running, the author's work as a writing coach, and the author's personal experience on how to get started writing a book fast.

The content is divided into 3 sections:

  • training
  • write-a-thon
  • recovery

Each section includes an introduction and a series of short essays with practical tips, tools, and encouragement on how to start writing to help readers incorporate the techniques into their own life. Write-A-Thon concludes with an annotated bibliography that provides additional writing help for readers on topics such as editing, grammar, and the publication process.

I'm actually EXCITED about writing again! Review by Katie

This book really motivates you to write. It's not filled with the boring how-to's but instead offers encouragement, real world examples, and achievable goals. I am so excited to write again, and I have Rochelle to thank!
