First of all, what is Hope*Writers?!

  1. We write meaningful words without sacrificing our meaningful life.
  2. We are still real writers even if we never write a book.
  3. We build benches, not platforms.
  4. We know how to hustle without losing our heart.
  5. We champion the success of other writers.
  6. We don’t wait to write until we feel qualified, picked, or inspired.
  7. We believe we have a message to share and a reader to serve.
  8. We refuse to take our work or ourselves too seriously.
  9. We understand fear is normal, but courage gets the final say.
  10. We celebrate progress and take our next right step in love.

Who is struggling with writing?

The Problem

Hope*Writers support team spoke with 80+ members after the
COVID-19 social isolation period hit and recorded their
experiences.
Everyone is going through a season of loss.

The 5 major areas of loss writers
are experiencing right now:

  1. Routine
  2. Focus
  3. Confidence
  4. Connection
  5. Income
  1. Loss of Routine
    ● Completely disrupted schedule means no time
    to write or writing can’t happen during my
    usual time.
    ● How do I start over again and find my writing
    rhythm?
    ● How do I do this when I’ve lost my quiet space
    and routine?
    ● Where and how do I establish a rhythm?
  1. Loss of Focus
    ● Brain fog.
    ● People are feeling more stressed and that is
    leading to an inability to focus, be productive,
    and keep motivated.
    ● Loss focus of who they are writing for and
    about with all that is going on.
    ● Stuck in a loop of non-action.
  1. Loss of Confidence
    ● Imposter Syndrome
    ● Who am I to address all these hurting people?
    ● Someone more accomplished should be doing
    this.
    ● They want to provide hope but don’t want to
    add to the noise.
  1. Loss of Connection
    ● Literal isolation.
    ● Feels untethered.
    ● Can’t go to the writing conference.
    ● Can’t meet up with writer friends.
  1. Loss of Income
    ● May have lost day job or furloughed.
    ● Added pressure to provide for their families.
    ● Makes writing feel that much less important,
    like a “want” and not a “need” right now.
    ● Writer goes from dreaming to “How dare I
    dream”
    ● Guilt

If any of this is you, guess what? There is hope!

Solution

While Hope*Writers doesn’t offer a quick plan for “making it” they do simplify what might feel complex.
A determined writing path helps to cut through the brain fog and re-establish a routine.
A supportive community to help close the gap of isolation.
A resource library to make progress towards writing goals.

The world needs your hope-filled words, now more than ever!

Next is 20 questions writers ask!

If you’re a writer or have ever thought about writing a book, you probably have more questions than you can keep track of –
“How do I find time to write?”
“Who am I to call myself a writer?”
“What’s the secret to getting my writing published?”
“What platform do publishers consider most important?”
“How do I know if I’m ready for an agent?”
Wouldn’t it be nice to have the answers to questions like that all in one place?
Well, my author friend Emily is a co-founder of hope*writers, and to teach their members they interview dozens of writing and publishing experts every year. They’ve compiled the best answers to the most asked questions and put it in one simple free pdf download.
It’s short, super helpful, and it ends your random google searches.

And there’s the Newbie Pocket Rulebook!

If you are a writer or have ever thought about writing a book, it can be confusing to try to navigate the world of publishing.
From writing a book proposal to finding an agent and a publisher, the steps can be overwhelming no matter what stage of the writing life you’re in.
My friend Emily, author and co-founder of hope*writers, has created a free downloadable e-book to help demystify the publishing process.
It’s short, it’s simple, and it explains each step of publication.
