End of WRITING TIPS (not really), and Happy New Year!
My loves,

It is 2019 (the year of the pig!), and it's the end of daily WRITING TIP posts. And BREAKDOWN posts (movie & book reviews and 12-Acts breakdowns), and HOW-TO posts, and all other posts for tiers below Wolves.

Thank you for your support all these years, for your trust, and for telling me how much my posts helped you and de-stressed you and got you to write every day.

HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT THE END. 

Smack in the middle of 2018 many of you asked for WRITING TIP posts to be put into a book, something like Mad Tutu Writing Tips (or some other crazy title). And…you got it! 

In 2019 I’ll be working on selecting the best ones of the pile and putting them into a book.

And! I’ll still post here very PERSONAL things that I want to keep private, and that I trust you to read and to hold my hand. They'll be random, maybe one a month or so. Maybe fewer. Maybe more. And I’ll post very secret NEWS posts here as well, for you to be the first to see.

FROM THIS DAY ON I'LL BE TEACHING WOLVES, BEARS, AND DRAGONS 12 ACTS.

That's all we'll be doing on Patreon. Working on becoming bestselling authors.

What does this mean?

It means you can stay at your pledge level, or you can kick it up to:

  • Wolves $50-per-month (weekly 1hr VOICE class) 
  • Bears (weekly 1hr VOICE class + weekly 1hr VIDEO class)
  • Dragons (weekly 1hr VOICE writing class + weekly 1hr VIDEO writing class + monthly 1hr PRIVATE VIDEO writing workshop).

You can always try it for a month, see how you like it, and then cancel the next month or stay. 

All classes are held in Discord and over Google Hangouts on Mondays 1:30-2:30PM PST and  2:30-3:30PM PST, and if you miss them, you get the audio and video recordings as posts right after.

There will be a book as well, maybe in about 2-3 years, tentatively called The 12 Acts of Every Story detailing the blueprint of a bestselling novel—a 12 week program of writing one—6 weeks for structuring and 6 weeks for writing it out.

And, of course, all your benefits are grandfathered into your tiers. As well as…

AS A PATRON YOU GET 1-HOUR VIDEO CALL WITH ME. 

Pick your date Tue/Wed/Thu/Fri 4-5PM PST or later if you’re outside of US, and let’s book it!
