The Daydreamer’s Guide to a Failproof Writing Routine

Presenter: Joanna Jast

Dates: April 2-27

About the Workshop

Sick of motivational ups and downs? Tired of having to ‘motivate yourself’ to write regularly? Prone to procrastination, daydreaming, mind-wandering or ‘let-me-just-check-this-one-little-thing-oh-is-it-really-this-late’? So is Joanna.

In this workshop, successful nonfiction author, Joanna Jast, reveals how to develop a motivation-resistant, willpower-independent writing routine that aligns with your personality, fits in with your life and runs on autopilot.

Once this class is done, you should be able to:

  • Diagnose your biggest obstacle to having a regular writing routine
  • Identify your perfect solution
  • Design your fail proof writing routine
  • Put it on autopilot

This class is lecture/discussion based and involves assignments, so get your fingers and gray cells warmed up and raring to go!

About the Presenter

Joanna Jast (writing fiction as Kate Kyle) is a nonfiction author and blogger by day and an aspiring romantic sci-fi/thriller writer by night. Her books on focus and habit formation have been bestsellers multiple times (Amazon, WSJ). Lazy by nature with weak willpower, she has developed a number of strategies to make herself write, edit, run her business, exercise and do all sorts of other things every author should do but hate doing – and she does it regularly and on autopilot.

She has been teaching her unusual but effective strategies to others, helping them improve their productivity fast. You can visit her website at
