This is your year.

It’s time to finally write that book.

In one year from now, you could have written and published that book

without getting stuck, without getting lost and without getting stressed

Do you have a book idea that’s been swimming around in your head? That story line for a novel that you just know other people would find exciting, if you’d just put it on paper? That hunch about a non-fiction book, or a business book?

But you haven’t written it.

Maybe because you think that you don’t have the discipline, or the time to write.

Maybe because you feel overwhelmed every time you think about all the thousands of manuscripts that never get finalized; all the wannabe-authors, and all the publishing, agency, and printing options that you’ve read about on the internet. Why would you succeed? And who are you to even try to become a writer?

Maybe because you’re afraid that you’re not creative or talented enough to write a book.

If this is you, first of all, let me tell you this: creativity can be developed, your book can become reality, and you can become a writer.

Writing is the best thing in the world. But it can also be scary, and frustrating.

While the initial plan for a book is exciting, it’s easy to lose confidence and zest along the way. Writing a book can be a lonely process, and it can feel as hard work. The longer you are working on a book, the harder it becomes to find the time, and the discipline, and the focus.

But you don’t have to do it alone. I’d be thrilled to help you. Together, we make 2019 the year in which you finally wrote and launched your book.

Who am I?

I’m Roanne and writing is the thing I love most, and do best in this world. I am an awarded writer of six (internationally) published fiction and non-fiction books; I also regularly write academic books and articles, blogs for online media, and featuring articles for magazines and newspapers.

Next to writing, I love helping other people in their writing process. I’m a teacher and mentor for writers all over the world, to help them put their ideas on paper, and finish the writing projects that have been swimming around in their heads for so long.

I don’t believe in 80 hours workweeks. I do believe in focus, strategic work and concentration.

In this mentor programme you’ll get:

1:1 intake-brainstorm (1,5 hour) with Roanne to get your book-idea clear and improved, and to establish a roadmap for your writing year, so that you know exactly what to do and how

4 x 1:1 follow-up, deep coaching work with Roanne to receive personal, in-depth advice on your writing. You send in your text beforehand, so that Roanne can give you 100% personalized advice. Each call will leave you focused, inspired, and energized.

Monthly LIVE video writing work days (online) with Roanne and the other members of the mentor trajectory. Roanne will guide you into a work-state of 100% focus – you will not believe what you will get done in a few hours of shared working!

Weekly online group-work sessions with Roanne and your peers, to write on collective creative energy and help you forward, in case you get stuck

Daily access to an online, protected environment that is exclusively available for you and the other writers, so that you can call on each other for co-reading, advice, support, pressing questions and high-fives!

Seasonal (4x per year) LIVE 1,5 hour-Masterclasses on: idea-and goalsetting, time management & work/life balance, creativity & inspiration, dealing with uncertainty & your inner critic

Personal advice about publishing and relevant contacts with publishers and agents in the writing industry

 

You’ll also get:

52 weekly text, audio and video lessons about stressfree productivity and creativity, to keep you on-track and inspired throughout the year

Planners, workbooks, playlists, meditations and other course materials to help you work in joy and flow

Daily access to an amazing network of talented fellow-writers and other creatives for ongoing support, advice and accountability

Investment: 450 Euro per month OR save 401 Euro and pay 4999 Euros for the full year, at once.

Interested in joining the writing trajectory, but unsure if this is for you? Please feel free to contact. Tell me more about your book idea, and I will tell you honestly if I think it is a project that I could help you with. Email me at info@roannevanvoorst, and I will call you to have a chat!

FAQ

Are you productive?

People who know me typically say I’m extremely productive. Which is true, I guess, if you look at my output (next to my job as a researcher on risk, courage and high-performance, last year I’ve written and published a novel, published a non-fiction book, translated a third book, created a new E-course, hosted two podcasts, wrote over 10 academic articles and more than 40 articles for magazines). You can check out some of my work here, if you’d like! I also travel the world for my research-and writing work, volunteer for a good cause and have a dog and family members that I care for. But I don’t feel busy. I don’t act busy. In fact, I find plenty of time to ponder, make long hiking trips, rock climb, play, dance, have lunch with friends, ponder, draw and write in my journal. I get things done in relatively little time, because I am extremely productive when I’m working. I’ve learned how to do that over the years, and it’s nothing more than a (lifechanging) set of skills that you can learn to master, too. I’d be honored to teach you all the methods, that help me!

What do I need for this course?

An email account, a computer with a speakerbox and/or headphones, a journal and pen. That’s all folks.

What if I miss a class?

No problem at all! You can always catch up when time allows you. I make replays of groupcalls and Q&As, and all of the lessons can be downloaded whenever you want.

How much time will this cost me per week?

Reading through the material will cost you on average 20 minutes; the actual work time is 30 minutes to one hour. Better news: the lessons will help you to save time. By implementing them, you’ll notice that you will become able to do much more, in much less time. That having been said, it depends, of course, on the plan you want to develop and the project you want to work on.

What if I have no goals, or if I don't know what my dream life is?

No worries, if you feel that there is something inside of you, that is pulling you and that is longing for something more and different, deeper and more meaningful, then I’m gonna help you define your goals, get them crystal clear and achieve them.

When do we start?

The 2019- program is NOW admitting new clients. We will formally start at the 1st of the new year, but once you’ve subscribed, you’ll already receiving some pre-let’sdothisthing-assignments, Ebooks, planners and other motivational stuff – consider them our warm-ups. On 1 January, we all start together, so that we can make use of a shared work-energy and you will have an obvious baseline to start off with. If you want to start a bit later, that’s no problem at all. Once in, you will get access to all the content, and you can work on the lessons, see replays and co-work with your peers, whenever is convenient for you.

Can I take the course in a different language than English?

No, I only offer this course in English, because it is important to me that people from everywhere in the world can join in. If you are Dutch and you prefer to follow a course about fear and courage in your native language, then the Fearlessly Fearful E-course is available for you in Dutch.

Can I pay with PayPal and/or in USD?

Absolutely! After you have clicked the registration button, you will be led to a secured payment environment. From there you can pay via PayPal, Creditcard, or if you prefer, via bank transfer. You pay in the currency that you prefer.

Can I pay in monthly instalments?

Yes! If you join the supported program, you can.

Can I join in with a small project, for which I might not need the full year?

I do recommend you join the whole year to get the most complete results from the lessons and the work-energy in the peer-community, but there are, of course, projects and situations that may demand an exception. If you feel that you want to join in, but only for 6 months (minimum), please send me an Email and briefly tell me about your plan, so I can consider your application.
