The Decade Ahead: Bundle

All Four Quarters of 2022 The Decade Ahead Classes

You have been creating all the stories and novels. Getting them out to readers, promoting them, then moving on to the next story. Great!

But how do you keep that going? How do you make sure you have a successful year, and at the same time plan for the new decade ahead.

In fact, how do you even plan in a realistic way that will help you long term.

In other words, how to keep going in 2022 and where would you like to be in 2031. This class will help you with that.

After a very false start in 2020, this full bundle of classes is back.

The videos will be writing hints (like the Tip of the Week used to be) and lots of publishing advice every month, plus lots of ways to keep up the motivation through each month. Much of it will be focused to the time of the year, since writing has patterns that affect us all.

Also, in the middle of the second month of each quarter, there will be a Pop-Up that will be for sale for $150, but given to everyone signed up in this for free. The Pop-Up will deal with different topics of publishing, craft, and looking ahead. And often will deal with how to get going again once stopped.

Each Pop-Up will have a story assignment as normal.

Each class is one quarter of 2020. Same structure in each quarterly class. You can purchase each class each quarter, or get them all in a bundle for a discount. (Basically four quarters for the price of three.)


Over 500 videos in four classes plus four Pop-Ups to help you learn craft and publishing, get through 2022 the way you hope, and prepare for the coming decade.
