Grant Faulkner

“I think the hardest part about writing is writing.” -Nora Ephron

Writing is hard! Especially when you’re doing it alone. Or when you don’t have a goal. Or when you lack a routine that pushes your writing project forward.


We’re going to make writing a little bit easier through this weekly accountability write-in. We want to create a supportive space where writers can churn out words, meet their goals and deadlines, and build creative connections with others.

For this ongoing, inspiring program, we're matching you up with writer, editor, and publisher, Grant Faulkner. Yes, the very same Grant Faulkner who directed National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), the organization that has helped more writers get words on the page than any other organization on the planet. Grant has written five books of his own, and he's working on a new one, so he'll be writing alongside you every session on Zoom. He'll help warm you up and give you the energy you need to keep going.

Meeting regularly to write with others is important because it helps keep you accountable. Think about it. Are you more likely to stop writing when your plot plays dead while alone at home or in a room full of other writers?


How each session works

  • Grant will start each session with a 5-minute talk on writing—some thoughts on developing a creative mindset, overcoming creative obstacles, or writing craft topics.

  • Grant will provide an optional writing prompt and…

  • You'll write—including Grant, who will write alongside you.

  • At the end you’ll do a check-in on our goals

  • Grant will answer a writing-related question at the end of each session.


Joyce Carol Oates said, “Getting the first draft finished is like pushing a peanut with your nose across a very dirty floor.” With this writing accountability group, we’ll make writing the first draft a little less arduous—and a lot more fun!
