As Vice President of the Boulder Writers' Alliance, I attend and help with all of their creative writing programs.

The Marshmallow Method:
A Ghostwriter’s Guide to Writing a Book in 90 Days or Less

(Even If You Don’t Know What Your Book Is About When You Start)

One of the biggest problems first-time authors have with getting their books done is, well, getting their books done. Not only is plotting their way through their content tough, but so is the actual process of writing. It's fraught with self-doubt, false starts, tomes of research, dead ends, rewrites, slippery outlines, grammar questions, elusive logic, work processor and computer issues, etc, etc.

And, all that before you even finish your first draft (when the real work begins!). How do you ever get anything done with all these reasons to quit?
Rick Killian has guided more than 60 manuscripts from initial inkling to final draft, and seen roughly three million copies of those books get sold. As a ghostwriter he’s finished 40,000- to 50,000-word manuscripts in as little as four weeks, with most of the books he’s done not taking longer than three months. Now doing more writing coaching, he’s sharing his methods with others.
