Sometimes the toughest part about writing is finding the time and space to do it. Our FREE online course will show you how to magic writing time from nowhere, how to set realistic and sustainable goals, and offer techniques for prioritising so that it always gets done. By the end of the course you’ll have an achievable, regular and confident writing practice.  

The biggest hurdle to finishing your story is often starting it. Maybe it’s hard to find the time in among work and family and the general goings on of life. Maybe you feel like you don’t know where to start. Maybe you’re quietly worried that you won’t be as good as you hope you’ll be.

14 Days To A Solid Writing Habit will guide you step-by-step through and over your hurdles and concerns while simultaneously getting your bum on a seat to write, and to write regularly.

Give us two weeks and we’ll have you raring to go.

Find time and space to write even when it seems impossible.

Finish the course with a regular, sustainable writing practice.

Join our lovely little online community to support you through starting, middling, finishing and beyond.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Enrol

    Once you’ve joined you’ll get an email confirming your place and explaining everything you need to know.

  • Read, watch, do

    The lessons are a mix of text, images, videos and exercises. To get the most out of the course, try to give yourself at least 30 minutes a day to read or watch the material and do the exercises. We’ve made them as bite-size as possible but also if you wanna do the thing you gotta do the work.

  • No rush

    This course is written to be done over 14 days but the content will sit in your inbox for as long as you like so you can work at your own pace and because life always gets in the way and also because we’re nice.

  • No money? No problem

    This course is FREEEEE!

  • Milk no sugar

    Drink plenty of tea, stock up on biscuits, gin for later. Enjoy it. It’s supposed to be fun. Love you. Mwa.

You could see out the month with a writing habit to make Barbara Cartland weep and productivity to make Stephen King fall on his knees in adulation.

Just wang your email address in the thingy and we’ll send you all the goodies.

And yes, it’s free, FREEEEE! (But obviously we’re gonna try to sell you stuff in the emails. You can ignore that stuff. We don’t care. We don’t. It’s fine. WE SAID IT’S FINE.)

I DON’T LIKE GIN, SWEARING, OR JOKES FORGED FROM THE DEPTHS OF THE INTERNET

Yeah no we’re probably not for you then. Our approach isn’t for everyone (your first clue is in our logo). We swear more than is ‘ladylike’ and use gifs when we could use our words. But, eh, fuck it. We don’t believe that linguistic purity or literary snobbery does anyone any favours. If we’re not a match for you, thanks for giving us a go and good luck with your writing – we wish you every success. But if, like us, you’ve never found your rightful place in the writing world and think WHQ could be just the ticket – welcome home, come in, grab a cuppa, we’ve been waiting for you (in a totally non sinister way ofc).

GDPR PLEASE NOTE GDPR WOOP WOOP GDPR

*we’re not being cynical list-building twats, we genuinely can’t operate our newsletter software well enough to stop it happening.

They’re here. We store your data in a handful of places – Mailchimp primarily, and if you sign up to our courses then we use Zapier and Thinkific. All are GDPR compliant. You can unsubscribe at any time.
