Write-A-Thon: Write Your Book in 26 Days (And Live to Tell About It)
Write-A-Thon is the first book to present an easy-to-use guide to writing a fiction or nonfiction book in a twenty-six day “marathon.” The life skills, performance techniques, and writing tools presented in Write-A-Thon are based on scientifically validated research from positive psychology, inspiration from the world of marathon running, the author’s work as a writing coach, and the author’s personal experience of writing books fast. The content is divided into 3 sections: • training • write-a-thon • recovery Each section includes an introduction and a series of short essays with practical tips, tools, and encouragement to help readers incorporate the techniques into their own life. Write-A-Thon concludes with an annotated bibliography that provides additional writing help for readers on topics such as editing, grammar, and the publication process.
