How to Get Your Writing Done – Finally

I want to help you get more writing done in 12 weeks than most people get done in 12 months. I want you to try the 12-Week Year.

I tried The 12-Week-Year for the first time last year and ever since then I’ve been hooked on the idea of ditching “annualized thinking” and focusing on setting 12-week goals instead of 12-month, or annual, goals.

Then one day that all changed.

Why I’m Ditching My 2021 Goals

I’m ditching my 2021 goals. Sort of.

I recently joined a mastermind being led by my friend and fellow writer Carrie Rollwagen. And in this mastermind, we’ll all be working together through The 12-Week Year by Brian P Moran and Michael Lennington. The premise is simple: get more done in 12 weeks than others do in 12 months. It’s all about setting and slaying goals, so when Carrie emailed me about it, of course, I was like, “Sign me up!”
