I only want a very, very specific type of writer to join my program / participate in my movement.

What, I can't have standards? Don't look at me like that. 

These things should really go without saying, but if you’ve ever wondered whether or not The Authorship Program® would be right for you, look no further than this list. This is the set of unspoken rules, guidelines or values that unify all of us, and will confirm once and for all whether you’re in the right place. These are the rules of the movement.

1) You must know deep down that writing is your destiny.

Some people were born to be singers, some actors…but you know you were born to write. And you didn’t choose the life, the life chose you. You can't deny that writing is a part of you, and always will be.

2) You must be aware that writing is hard, but want to do it anyway.

No matter how much you cursed your story yesterday, and threw crumpled pages against the wall, you can’t ever let that stop you from returning to that manuscript. That old blank page, or that familiar blinking cursor on your laptop  again, and again, and again. Because people out there need your stories.

3) You must be a “die-hard” writer.

You find that it’s the best way to authentically express yourself, and always prefer to write than communicate in any other way when given the choice.

4) You must know you have so much more to achieve in your writing and life.

You know you could do so much more for the world, if you just had what you need emotionally, or just knew where to start. The Authorship Program® gives you that place to start.

5) You must be open to the more holistic approach to your writing life.

You’re starting to realise that traditional writing advice doesn’t work, and the only way to really make a difference in your own writing career is to seek advice that speaks to your soul.

6) You must be ready to think bigger, play bigger, and leave your legacy with your words.

Whether you’re in it for the money or the love, you want to reach more people through your words in every way possible.

7) You must be ready to do anything to make your dream a reality.

The Authorship Program® was built for the go-getters. The people who are simply dying for someone to set them on a path to success that they can run down. The people who were just waiting for the sign that they should up their game and finally become who they were meant to be. This is it.
