STOP - Exclusive Behind The Scenes Magic For Writers willing to write...
How I took fifty years of writing experience and Turned It Into A One-Year breakthrough program that will take YOU to the next level of your career!
 Hi!  My name is Steven Barnes, and I'd like to tell you a story.

Fifty years ago, I wrote and read compulsively, every day. But this isn't a fairy tale, where the people around me applauded my efforts and supported my ambitions:   my mother burned my stories. My teachers mocked me, and no one believed I had the slightest chance to actually become a professional writer.   I got rejection after stomach-churning rejection.   And now, more than three million words and thirty novels later--I realize that somehow I made it all the way to my childhood dreams.

I wasn't sure how I'd done it until I taught  a class at UCLA, and applied the Hero's Journey to a student's problems. He suddenly began to devise all his own answers, because he had told himself a story about his life, and was able to change his ending.

THIS is the essence of "LIFEWRITING", a technique I've taught to thousands of people over more than three decades. Twelve years ago I collected everything I knew about this process into an incredible book I called "the Lifewriting Year Long." Students thought it was "the best writing course ever created", but I knew I could do even better. Make it even simpler. That I needed to create a STEP BY STEP program to enable ANYONE with the heart and guts, with average command of the English language, to actually publish. And…I've done it. I give away this core program:

 1) Write a sentence every day
 2) Write 1-4 stories a month
 3) Finish and submit your stories
 4) Don't rewrite except to editorial request
 5) Read 10X what you write (roughly, a story every day)
 6) Repeat 100 times

No one, and I mean NO ONE who has followed this pattern has failed to publish. The furthest anyone has gotten is only 27 stories before publication. IF you are willing to do this, I make you an unprecedented promise: you WILL publish if you buy this course. And I'll give you a full YEAR to work. If you do, and you honestly work the program and after twelve months you don't think you are doing the best work of your life, either published or closer than you've ever been…I'll happily return every dollar.

In one year, our promise is:

If you've never finished a will!
If you've finished but never will!
If you've submitted but never continued to will!
If you've submitted but never will!
If you've sold, but never understood how to sell will!
If you've sold stories regularly, but not completed longer will!
If you don't know how to predictably, continuously improve the quality of your work and will!

Wherever you are in your career, you WILL raise your game to the next level...guaranteed!

How I help students make their first publication
When a student follows the Lifewriting Process, they are not alone. All they have to do is commit to writing at least ONE SENTENCE EVERY DAY, and the rest follows naturally.   We have support structures, brainstorm on sales avenues, provide emotional nurturance, and KICK YOUR BUTT to keep writing. 

Afraid?  Fear is a natural human emotion when we reach for excellence. We can help you!

Undisciplined?  Just commit to writing that single sentence a day, and if you do...we will help you ease into a pattern that slowly, surely, produces the best work of your life.

"But I write novels!" you say. is a truth you may not want to grasp: if you try to write a novel before you have sold short stories, you are like someone who runs a marathon without ever having run around the block!   It is SO easy to get lost, so easy to let depression and "writer's block" stop you.  But if you will just commit to following our simple pattern, we PROMISE you will kick yourself loose from your old constraints, and open the door to real excellence as a writer. And if your dream is to be a professional...we will guide you there, as well!

 "Since I’ve joined the Lifewriting Program, I have become a prolific writer.   I now have a cache of stories to flutter the market with.  I am so grateful to the Lifewriting Program for providing me with the encouragement, community and tools to become a published author."
