December 1: Big ol’ bundle o’ templates

On the first day of Christmas, Vicky gave to you…

A big bundle of book writing templates with 10% off. Woo hoo!

I’ve just added THREE brand new templates too, and updated the existing ones, so if you’re one of the smartie-pantses who’s already got my Start Your Book Bundle, you’ll want to head over to the Google Drive (or Notion workspace) and check them out.

You can find the info here:

But here’s what's included:

  • Your Big Book Idea + Synopsis (to help you get clarity on your book idea)
  • The Reader Journey (to figure out who you’re writing to, why, and how)
  • Your Book on One Page (a detailed outline for you to work from)
  • The Chapter Plan ( to help you plan each chapter in detail — there’s one for a how-to book and one more general template)
  • The Introduction Framework (to help you write that pesky intro)
  • The Conclusion Template (to help you finish on a high)
  • The Story Framework (a template to help you structure the stories you use)
  • Building Client Stories (a template to help you get bostin’ testimonials you can use all over the place, as well as in your book)
  • Writing Games (a bunch of blank page killers for those times you’re just stuck)

Hop over here and grab your template bundle, and use this code for 10% off:


The code expires at midnight on Monday December 5.


Writing Prompt

It’s the first of the month which means: tiny beetle steps to getting where we want to go.

I know big hairy goals freak some people out (including me).

So let’s set a couple of reasonable ones—and then figure out the tiny beetle step we can take to get there.

  1. What would make December a win for you?
  2. What would you like to achieve in your writing?
  3. Now, what’s the first tiniest beetle step you could take to get there? The smallest possible thing you could do? (HINT maybe my template bundle can help you? Right here?)

Set a timer for 5 minutes, and see if you can map out the steps to delight.
