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:
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.
