We all get stuck from time to time. And we are feel stuck when we don’t have the tools or knowledge to complete a project or a goal. For me personally and professionally, 2019 has become the Year of Being Unstuck!

When it comes to writing family stories that you have sitting around either documented through facts or through oral history, getting unstuck NOW is so important. What would happen if you never got the chance to commit those stories to paper or digital format as a means of preserving a legacy? Most likely, those stories would be LOST forever.

Lisa Alzo of Research, Write, Connect has developed a series of proven online courses called The Write Stuff that just might get you from stuck to unstuck in a matter of a few weeks! I’ve worked with Lisa in the past developing various online boot camps and writing intensives and I can vouch for her skills. The feedback from participants in these writing classes has been stellar and some have even gone on to publish their own family history books!

Lisa also has a BRAND NEW writing course – The Write Stuff III: Selling the Story that can help you PUBLISH that family history book you’ve always wanted to create! “We’ll teach you how to continue your writing project by identifying a compelling story, working through practical considerations for publishing for a wider audience, implementing key creative nonfiction writing techniques writing a “hook” chapter. We’ll provide helpful tips, checklists, and worksheets to help keep you on track.”

And if you act fast, you can take advantage of an amazing offer: Save 40% on any or all The Write Stuff courses PLUS the first 10 people to purchase a writing course at Research, Write, Connect will receive a FREE personal on-line consultation with Lisa Alzo to discuss their writing project!
