Writer's Boot Camp is the kick in the pants you need to stop saying you want to write and start writing, today. In week 1 you'll assess your priorities and set up your routines. In week 2 you'll begin the workouts, stretching outside your comfort zone, acclimating to the Daily Slog (the writing equivalent of a Daily Jog), running hurdles, and building endurance. Week 3 gets you to adapt to life in the trenches, learning to delay gratification and take the advice you need. The Resistance Training in Week 4 teaches you to tolerate uncertaintity and push through when it's dark and your alone. By Day 30, you'll be fit for duty. Inside this writer's fitness supply kit you'll find 50 Creativity Drill Cards, a 272-page workbook of writing workouts, excerises and prompts to jump start your creativity, tips for discovering your weak spots, and an essential Do Not Disturb - Writer at Work Sign!
