Get the structure you need to
craft an amazing story!

You'll be well on your way to writing your book in just seven weeks, even if you're not a writer. These are the seven weekly lessons I cover in my online course, each ending in a hands-on exercise that brings you one step closer to getting your book written.


COURSE OVERVIEW

WEEK 1: Find Your Message
Pinpoint the wisdom you want to share by being able to encapsulate your message in one to three sentences.

WEEK 2: Build Your Story's Structure
Structure your story with a beginning, middle, and end that makes sense, flows, and supports your message

WEEK 3: Summarize Your Story
Learn how to professionally summarize your story, because if you can't tell it in 750 words, you can't do it in 200 pages.

WEEK 4: Create a Story Outline
Learn how to create a professional story outline that you can actually use to keep you on track while you write.

WEEK 5: Write Your Introduction
Learn how write your backstory so you know exactly where to start your story in your book.

WEEK 6: Prepare to Write
Learn how to set up a professional, dedicated writing space and rituals that actually encourage you to write.

WEEK 7: Write Your Book Manuscript
Learn how to plan your writing schedule into your busy life (just like you would an exercise program) so you find time to write.

PRICING OPTIONS

Okay, let’s get serious here. You want to write your story, but you’re not sure how much time and money to invest into actually sitting down and doing it. But then you have to ask yourself, what is the emotional cost if I don’t write my story? How long have you been thinking about writing your story, but haven’t done it? How many years have you put it off? How will you feel five or ten years from now if you still haven’t written your story?

To help ease you into your story-writing process I offer three affordable pricing options of my 7 STEPS TO TURN YOUR STORY INTO A BOOK online course.

STILL NOT SURE?

Listen to what these students of
7 STEPS TO TURN YOUR STORY INTO A BOOK
have to say

“My only regret is that I didn’t take this course before I wrote a first draft of my book. It would’ve improved my story and saved me countless hours.”
—Dick Gary, writer

“Stacy combines clarity with her gifted wit to to keep the course fun and productive. I engaged flexibly on my own time to do the ‘work,’ then anticipated Stacy’s interactive webinars to cover a spectrum of questions. You will absolutely love her pragmatic and upbeat coaching.”
—Bonnie Bedford Park, author of Brides of 1941 (the first book in a trilogy)

“I really enjoyed the pep talk/cheerleading included in the section about creativity and rejection.But I got the most out of the ‘clearing your head space’ lesson. I find that sometimes when I work on my writing, I’m not in the mood for it, so Stacy’s suggestions [on clearing one’s head space in order to write] will be helpful.”
—Kim Cayes, corporate writer

“Being a visual learner, I really like the videos, and the examples written out of the Stacy’s 3-5-3 rule in Step 3. That resonated with me.”
—Carly Stenmark, author of More Than a Manicure: the Nail Files

“I really got a lot from this course and I see a structure for my book now.”
—Sally Hallada, writer

My name is Stacy Dymalski, and I'm branded as The Memoir Midwife. As a story editor, author, publishing consultant, comedian and film producer, I've helped hundreds of authors and filmmakers find, write, and share their stories.

I know not everyone who wants to write their story can afford to hire a private story consultant. So I've taken my story development process that I use with my private clients and created an affordable online course that teaches you how to structure your story and write it from beginning to end.

7 STEPS TO TURN YOUR STORY INTO A BOOK provides the clarity you need by stepping you you through the same story development process used by authors, screenwriters, and filmmakers…and now you!
