You have a story idea but you don't know where to start...
You started writing your book, but now you're stuck...
You're tired of saying you'll write a book, but every year your book isn't done...
You'll write and edit your first draft in 6 months because you have a success roadmap, along with focus, and weekly accountability to get you there.
You'll work through the blocks that've stopped you from writing, and actually finish your fiction book.
You get support and encouragement from a writer who's been there and can provide strategic advice & tools.
We all underestimate how much goes into writing a book until we type-the end.
You've started before but just can't seem to reach the end or maybe your don't know where to start. Character or plot? What makes a great chapter or scene?
Maybe you struggle to find time to write, or your fears and doubts cripple you when you sit down to write.
Regardless of the challenges, their enormity is shutting down your creativity and stopping your from finishing your book!
Trust me, I understand. But, a book coach is expensive! And, the kick-ass coaches are booked months in advance. But, DIY is a bad idea, because you need accountability to keep you on track along with support and - oh look! A shiny new story idea!
That's the fantastic benefit of group coaching. You get all the perks of having a book coach, but without the high cost. Win-Win!

Write the Damn Book is a comprehensive program that meets you where you are with writing your fiction book and provides you with content and resources to write and edit your first draft, and ready to work with a professional editor in six months.
If you’re starting from just an idea or can’t choose, you’ll get clarity about the best story idea to write. From clarity you’ll create a story bible, a writing routine to fit your life, and unpack writing blocks that kept you from starting or finishing your book in the past, so they don’t become an obstacle when you start writing.
Once you have a strong foundation, you’ll create a writing plan to write your first draft and gain strategies for starting and finishing strong, along with how to maximize your writing time and stay motivated.

"I’ve been talking about writing a book forever, so when I saw Elke was offering a workshop called “Write the Damn Book” I knew it was for me. Not only did Elke give me the encouragement I needed to stay on track for the entire month, she taught me the importance of goal setting, the organizational elements required behind the actual “writing” of the book, and how to be accountable to myself and my story. The group coaching sessions were full of tips and tricks. The content was driven by our requests and it was very helpful to see the questions, struggles and triumphs of the other participants. As I told Elke, we often don’t know what we don’t know, so her insight and experience was truly valuable. I would highly recommend Write the Damn Book – Group Coaching to anyone who wants to stop talking about their book and start writing it. It has given me the momentum I needed. I am still writing and have implemented a weekly writing schedule that fits perfectly into my life."
"I am motivated to write more and better, in a structured and disciplined manner. Elke delivered as promised and provided material which help me hone my craft. I continue to take advantage of the writing tips Elke shares on social media. I encourage budding writers, poets, etc., to participate in her workshops and online coaching opportunities."
"I was recommended by a mutual friend to join the CayWriters group as a place to foster my craft of writing. Elke has been nurturing to my craft yet remains objective throughout. The resources that she provides has served me well throughout the years. I particularly benefited from the writing workshops that she organized. I love Elke’s passion for writing and for encouraging other writers as well. In fact, it is with Elke’s encouragement that I’ve set even higher goals for myself."
I know how hard it is to write a book. Writing is lonely, especially when you're surrounded by people who don't believe and support your dream.
Right now, you're excited to write your book, but your blood is pumping with dread thinking about the time, effort, and money it's going to take.
I get it, but you've been here before saying you can do it alone. Can you? What does your gut say?
How many times have you started and stopped writing your book?
How many times has fear, doubt, and life stopped you from finish the book that's been on your heart to write?
STOP saying another time! STOP letting another year find you without fulfilling the dream of writing your book.
Your story matters. Your book matters!
Get the focus, support, and accountability you need to finish your book!
