Roadmapping Your Story

Every good brand begins with a plan.

Every good website begins with a strategy.

Every good book begins with a roadmap.

You’ve got a great idea for a book. You know you’re ready to tell your story and share your message.

But taking your idea from Chapter 1 to the conclusion is a big task!

And sometimes it’s a task that feels too big to conquer alone. Too many writers start strong and get lost somewhere along the way without the tools and support they need to keep going.

We want to equip writers to get across the finish line, to help them write the words in their hearts without the overwhelm and struggle. With the help of two of our friends, Ariel Curry and Liz Morrow, we can do just that! Combining principles from Ariel and Liz’s Hungry Authors coaching platform with the personalized care MRM is known for, we have planned a small group intensive just for YOU.

We will spend the day showing you:

  • how to flesh out the full transformation for your reader or your memoir
  • several common book structures for organizing your content
  • how to map out chapter by chapter what to actually write so you never get stuck
MRM Roadmapping Your Story Workshop

This is not an online webinar or masterclass with general principles you are left to apply on your own.

This is an in-person, round table and sticky notes workshop where we invest in YOU and your message in a very hands-on and personalized way.

Let’s Roadmap Your Story

If you’re looking for help with your nonfiction or memoir manuscript, join us for coffee, gather around our table, and let’s talk about how we can make your writing dreams come true!

While some of the book mapping principles can be applied across all types or genres of books, this workshop is designed specifically for nonfiction and memoir manuscripts.

The simple answer is “yes”! This workshop is for any nonfiction or memoir author, whether you hope to land a book deal with a traditional publisher or you plan to self-publish (on your own or with MRM). Either way, our goal is to equip you to write your book and to do it well!
