Burning desire to write a book but unsure what to write about?

Need the tools for writing a book with a full schedule?

Overwhelmed by how to get started?

Craving support and understanding from others who want it badly too?


Wishing you pursued the dream that’s been tugging at your heart for years? 

This could be the year you hold your book in your hands and share it with the rest of the world.

Join the 5-Day Challenge to get the know-how, encouragement, and motivation to write the book that’s always been on your heart!



How the Free ChallEnge works:


  • Register for the challenge (either by itself or with the workbook below).
  • You’ll receive access to your personal dashboard in the Marvel Makers Club member section.

  • Course videos will be released on a new topic each day (see schedule below).

  • To not overwhelm your busy life, our goal is to limit the information to only 20-30 minutes a day. The exercises will take longer, but those are on your own time, whenever you can get to them. The challenge is to provide you with the tools to succeed.


An optional workbook is available below.

Day 1 : An Introduction to the Basics

Struggling with a book idea? Whether interested in fiction or non-fiction, let’s help you figure out WHAT you want to write about, and how to go about doing it. 

Day 2 : Story Structure & Plot

This is the part that many people get hung up on. What’s actually important in your first draft? These exercises will help you tackle the plot easier so you can better fill in the details. 

Day 3 : Character & Location Outline

Although this can be one of the most fun parts, it’s important to make your characters and locations spark emotions in the reader. We’ll talk about what to focus on when designing these pieces.

Day 4 : Story & Chapters Outline

Let’s take all the moving sections from the previous days to form them into a storyline that readers can follow and enjoy. 

Day 5: Long-Term Success

How do you make a living as a writer? What do you need to do BEFORE you finish your manuscript? What are the best goal and time management strategies for writers? How do you organically market your book? What about publishing? We’ll talk about next steps to set you up for success.
