Write More Books Each Year Using the Methods Taught in this Comprehensive Course
Ever wonder how some self-published authors manage to write as many as 10 books each year, while you are hard pushed to publish even a couple?
Or are you a part-time writer, struggling to balance your writing career with your regular day job?
Writing productivity really is a key component towards whether or not you will ultimately be successful as a self-published author.
The more books that you are able to write, the more promotional opportunities are available to you and the better chance you have of making a substantial income from your writing.
A Simple Formula For Increasing Your Writing Productivity
When you think about it, a simple formula for writing productively could be:
The amount of time you actually get to sit down and write multiplied by the number or words you are able to write in any given session.
In the course we’ll look together at how you can find the time during your busy schedule for your writing. And also how you can increase the number of words you write each time you sit down at your desk.
In the section on Planning Habits, you will learn:
In the section on Writing Habits, you will discover how the writing tool, Scrivener, can help transform your whole mindset towards writing. And in particular, I will show you:
Although this course is primarily focused on writing productivity, it is also concerned with productive habits for self-published authors in general.
It is important that you do not neglect non-writing tasks, which are important in your life as a self-published author, and so I will also show you how you can incorporate marketing, learning and even health-related tasks into your daily routine.
At the end of each section of the course, I have included:
And by completing the quizzes, the extra reading material and the tasks I have set, I believe you will take even more from the course than if you just sit and watch it, so I highly recommend that you do so.
By the end of this course on writing productivity habits, you will be in a better position to write more books each year and will also be more focused in achieving success in your career as a self-published author.

BONUS LECTURE: Exclusive Offer for Completing the Course
My name is David James Ault and I am a British ex-pat living in Slovakia, in the heart of Europe, with my wonderful Slovak wife, our three children and our English Bullterrier, Shaggy.
Having graduated with a BSc (Hons) Degree in European Business, the first part of my career was spent in marketing, especially in the tourism industry, and during that time I completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing, at the CIM.
In 2001, I moved from the UK to Slovakia, where I set up a tourism portal about Slovakia and wrote travel related articles and books. I also began writing my first novel.
At that time I taught English as a Foreign Language, as well as Business English Mentoring, and then in 2005 I started working as a Freelance Translator, before finally setting up my own translation company.
During the last 15 years I have written a number of non-fiction books within a variety of niches and set up a number of successful websites to promote my various interests. More recently, I have also been writing fiction and non-fiction books for teenagers and young adults and, in January 2015, I set myself the goal of becoming a full-time author within the next two years. I am currently creating a series of online courses to impart some of the knowledge I have learned over the years to my students.
