Changing your Writing World

Write Better Faster

Do you want to write faster? 

Are you stuck or stalled in your process? 

Are you frustrated with a lack of productivity?

This is the class for you.

Everyone wants to be more productive--write faster, release more books--but most of us don't know where to start. Let me give you a hint, according to former students: start with this class. 

Your brain is like a lock-box, and everyone's box has a different code. Copycat productivity techniques are hit-and-miss, and the "hit" part is determined by how similar your personality is to the writer or teacher. But by using brain science, you can learn how to unlock your customized productivity strategies.

We're going to focus on customizing your systems and your writing life for specifically how your brain works. Once you learn how to work with your wiring, you will not only get better, but you'll get better-faster. You will also receive a personalized one-on-one with Becca (the instructor) who has thirteen years of coaching experience, in addition to a Master's Degree in Transformational Leadership. At a value of over $350 for the one-on-one alone--let alone all the individualized attention inside the class--the big benefit of this class is the individualized approach. 

You will leave the class with a set of strategies and tactics that will help you do your best work, be your most productive, and accomplish your writing goals. This class includes four weeks of intensive instruction and a personalized one-on-one appointment that would cost hundreds of dollars, anywhere but on the Margie Lawson platform. The class size is capped at 60 and it fills fast, so get your spot today!

"This class is life-changing. I've been taking classes for a long time, and writing for almost as long, and I've never found a class like it."

"As a writer, if you take only one course in your writing career, make it this one. It is a game changer and really is structured to help you as an individual."

"Take it! I have been deeply skeptical of these author-productivity courses since they started proliferating around 2012 or so. I took a chance on this one because the word-of-mouth was excellent. Now I, too, have begun recommending it to my writer friends and will continue to do so."

"I highly recommend this class to all authors who want to better understand why certain methods and processes work for them while others do not. Knowledge truly is power. This class will help you to recognize your strengths and use them to create an actionable strategy for your writing and writing career."

Aha! Moment from the EDITS system

The EDITS system is a little bit of magic. Wielding 5 brightly colored highlighters, I marked up my manuscript according to the system and--Voila!--why a scene works, or doesn't, is as plain as blue, green, yellow, pink, and orange. This was my third class with Suzanne and she never disappoints. I highly recommend this class. Expect incisive, kind feedback and quick responses to questions, along with Suzanne's good humor.

I used to analyze great writers’ writing, to see how they did it. But with limited success, because I lacked tools. It was like trying to fix a car with a screwdriver, and spotty knowledge of auto mechanics. Then I took Margie Lawson’s Empowering Characters’ Emotions class, taught by Suzanne Purvis, which transformed my writing world. Margie Lawson’s lessons gave me advanced knowledge of the craft, along with a comprehensive tool kit, which helped me boost my writing to a much higher level. Suzanne’s guidance and feedback on my assignments gave me even further insight and helped make my writing even stronger. If you’re serious about your writing career, take this class!
