The Organised Writer & The Myth of Writers' Block

Are you working on a manuscript but can’t eke out enough space in your day? Do you feel demotivated by failing to meet your daily word count target? Or have you fallen foul of writers’ block?

In this online masterclass, Antony Johnston shares tried and trusted methods of how to become an organised writer.

In the first part of this online masterclass, Antony will explain the FASTEN principles that underpin his Organised Writer system, with real-life hacks on: managing your calendar and schedule in order to prioritise writing time; how to make the most of effective note-taking; organising your writing space; and more.

In the second section, Antony will debunk the myth of writer’s block, explaining what it really is, how to overcome it, and how to avoid it in the future.

Followed by a Q&A, this masterclass will provide you with invaluable tips on how to stay on top of all your projects, and never miss a deadline again. Most important of all, it will leave you fired up to get on with your writing.
