Sometimes it is not that easy to put LIFE aside and do it. We consistently find that what writers need most is to be held accountable. For someone to set a deadline, watch that you actively work towards it and hold you to your promise.
This was the most incredible experience. I started my book a while ago and completed the most awful first draft when my kids left to go to University and boarding school. They came home during lockdown so there went my writing. I grabbed your challenge with gusto and undertook to complete my second draft with major editing by the end of the course. Jenny McGregor
The power of crazy deadlines makes me crazy and ecstatic simultaneously! Book already being read around the world – Kate
This month has given me the gift of being on a fast creative train and I am in love with life! Gulistan Dhyan
I have mapped out 40 scenes and written 25,000 words of a new novel this month, so I’m still happy with where I’ve gotten to. I’ve found myself hitting a groove of writing every day Drew Schapper
The accountability of the group clicked in & held me, in a vice grip, to keep writing irrespective. And Kate and Sarah's informative and motivational tit bits on the way. brilliant. it worked! I finished my rewrite on Sunday. Catherine Glennie
I loved the ZOOM bumtime sessions, I am grateful for this group process which helped me to focus, commit, write and affirm that I know enough to do this. Deep gratitude for your daily support, prompts, deadlines, candid self-reveals, humour, anecdotes, quips and quotes, and constant encouragement. Linda Glass
I have been trying to get this baby out for a decade. I set a word count with the help of Kate and Sarah, I met it. The focus and discipline I found with the lessons and prompts below my mind," Geri McMahon, Ireland.
This 30 days was the most incredible anchor. I had fallen out of the writing zone with my second book and this kept me going. The daily lessons, audio, quote and notes just pushed me and pushed me. It was unstoppable," Catherine Glennie, No More Push Push
It was during this that everything finally fell into place with my book," Sandra Aquino, Secrets from Above
My big goal was to finish my second draft. Done."
I can't believe what I achieved in this time. I walk away with a competent and solid book plotted," Sue Adams author.
This was genius. I was pushed all the way to the end.," Jacqui Bauer
The focussed online writing sessions were just genius. I couldn't believe that we can write together, in silence, from all corners of the world and get so much done," Jana-Marie Coombes
I finished my second draft. It's good. I finished at 5am on the final day. I put the last full stop and it is done. I could never have done it without the group energy," Jenny .
The group and the push gave me such a creative momentum. It gave my writing movement and pace and excitement," Linda Odjugo, Italy.
I joined the Stop Mucking About accountability group with Kate Emmerson and Sarah Bullen Roderick because I knew I would not have the discipline on my own to finish my book. In fact I haven't stopped working with them since the writing retreat in Greece last year. And I am now on my third (and final!) draft with a deadline for 20-2-2020 to be done and dusted. The regular weekly updates, their gentle (but kickass!) nudging together with the wealth of information and tools they both bring makes this an amazing support group. Stop Mucking About is a worthwhile investment in you and your book! Just do it! Di Atherton 2019
Thank you Sarah Bullen Roderick and Kate Emmerson for getting me to actually produce a 120 000 word manuscript. It's so easy to talk about writing a novel, to think about writing a novel but to actually get down and do it is something else. You gave me the structure, the support, kept flagging energy going and an occasional prod and push, and it got done. You do what you say- Author Support - and its brilliant. Loved my courses with you. Thank you. Sue Adams 2019
Just wanted to share how useful and inspiring I am finding the Aston Mucking About program run by Sarah Bullen Roderick and Kate Emmerson. There is no way they will let u fail and their support, loving guidance and constant presence have helped me to move forward with my project despite struggling with work life balance - please do yourself a favor and enroll. Mary-Joe Emde 2019
Over the last four years I have been writing in circles and at the end of those four years I manage to have three excellent chapters but still no ending to my book. By joining the 'Stop mucking about' group headed by Sarah Bullen Roderick and Kate Emmerson, I am now well on my way in writing the first draft of my first novel and the ending is clearly in sight. Their constructive feedback, prodding, encouragement and belief in me has made the journey an exciting and rewarding one. Jane Bond 2019
I started my journey with my beloved project in 2015. I dipped in and out of it for the past 3 and some years, feeling close to it but lacking that something to lead me forward. Since joining the group in August, absolutely everything changed. I keep looking back in awe because I’ve now completed a first draft. And that’s a big thing! There is something special about having a place to account as well as having two strong and experienced guides to crack the whip and remind you of your commitments.
This continues to be an invaluable experience for me and I feel mushy and weepy with gratitude for it. Gladys Ryan 2019
