You’re a memoir writer with stories to tell.

But you’re struggling to get through a draft these days, let alone finish a story you feel excited to share. 

You feel stuck in a rut and could use some guidance and inspiration.

You want to write, but are struggling to find the time. And when you do, you’re too exhausted to be creative.

Without accountability or support you aren’t making any progress and keep falling behind on your writing goals.


I get it.

That’s why I created the 555 Story Challenge

Perfect for busy writers of memoir who struggle to find time for creative work and thrive with the accountability of deadlines.
