You dream about writing a book.


There’s just one little problem.


Your life is crazy busy.


Between going to work, raising the kids, running your household, and trying to be a wonderful friend / sibling / spouse / partner / activist / everything else, there’s just not much time left.


So, is it possible to write a book…when you have almost zero free time?




Come to this free class. We’ll show you how it’s done!


At this class, we’re covering:


How to choose a book topic that fits the reality of your life. What kind of book could you realistically write in 3 hours? Or in 1 day? In 1 weekend?


5 types of books that don’t take forever to write—letter book, list book, question book, how-to book, journal—so you can experience the joy of writing a book without having to write tons of text.


Why you might want to write a tiny book (30-70 pages) instead of a standard length book (200-300 pages).


Why tiny books are really powerful. Big ideas in a small package. Just because it’s short, that doesn’t mean it’s “less awesome” or “dumbed down.” Tiny books are a big deal.


And a big encouraging pep talk to remind you that…you really can write a book.  Many have done this before. You can do this, too. And it might not be as daunting as you think.


During class, we’ll also share a little info about The Tiny Book Course and invite you to join the next session! (No pressure, of course!)


See you there!
