Procrastination Begone!


You love to write more than anything in the world.


I’ll help you to sit down and, well, actually do it.


Think time just for you away from the real world, space to write and plenty of cheerleading. Oh, and cake.

I’m an Olympic-level procrastinator. You think I’m joking.

Why do you think I help other writers to (successfully) stop procrastinating if not to avoid my own writing? I’m GOOD.

That’s how I know what works, and there are a few strategies that can convince me to get to work for, ooh, 10 minutes or so.

Pop your details in to the right to get them, along with a dose of cheerleading every couple of weeks and new retreat and online course dates. Awesome.


Go on, spill the beans...

Here’s how I can help:

Time and space to write in the middle of the city.


No distractions. No internet.

Concentrate and create.

Escape the city and immerse yourself in words.


Three and six night writing retreats in the gorgeous countryside.

Online programme with structures and support for novelists.


Go from idea to first draft in six months.


Every writer I know has trouble writing.


Joseph Heller, author of Catch-22

You should be able to just sit down at your desk and write, right?


But it’s hard to find time, and there’s no shortage of reasons to procrastinate: the internet, TV, cooking, cleaning, jobs, family the fact that it’s sometimes really hard.


You’re not alone.


Sometimes, despite the best of intentions (even if you write for a living), it doesn’t quite happen.


The biggest problem you’re likely to have as a writer is, um, not actually writing.


Not writing, or not being where you want to with your writing, sucks.


It makes you feel terrible, like you’ve failed, and the less you write the stronger the urge to procrastinate becomes.


Even if you’re writing happily it can be a lonely job, and sometimes you just need to get out of the house and be around other writers.


That’s where I come in.


You need time and space away from distraction to focus.


And you need someone who expects you to work. Or a roomful of productive people who expect you to work too.

You’ll be amazed at what you can do when you put your mind to it.

Keep in touch and find out about new retreat dates

You’ll also get a toolkit to help you focus and develop great writing habits, along with motivation tips and useful things for writers every couple of weeks.

That sounds nice
