How NOT to Write a Book

In How NOT to Write a Book, Shannon will teach you how to avoid success by making all the most common mistakes of the writing process. We all make mistakes—it’s a fact of life—but it’s also a key part of our learning process. We have to screw up in order to learn how to do things right the first time. Please note the facetious tone of this course—it’s like reverse psychology. We’re telling you exactly how you should go about your writing process if you DO NOT want to achieve success.

From maintaining proper branding and gaining quality followers to encouraging replies and evaluating your progress, this course will teach you the basics that apply to every social network, as well as more specific strategies for each service. Since we’re all strapped for time, we’ll also throw in a boatload of time-saving tips and tricks that will allow social media to further your writing career — even if you can only spare 15 minutes a day!
