Once upon a time, there was a girl who wanted to be a writer. She was a lover of books and the magic they told. She dreamt of changing the world, telling beautiful truths, touching the hearts of readers, all through the written word.

She studied craft.

She learned how to write compelling characters. She analyzed how to craft an organic plot. She studied writing through books, courses, writing blogs, and even got a degree in fiction. She was determined to be a writer.

But then she got stuck.

The writing wasn't getting done as quickly as she wanted. She had a day-job that kept her busy (and she loved binge-watching TV on Netflix).

This made her feel guilty, so she began to pressure the writing. But the muse wouldn't show up and inspiration wouldn't strike.

She tried to put words on the page, but a jerkface inner critic appeared whispering evil somethings into her ear:

"You're not good enough."

"Your story sucks."

"You're not really a writer at all."

She tried to fix it.

  • She tried to write 1000 words a day, every day.
  • She tried to get into a routine.
  • She tried to set deadlines to get it done, but they passed with no real progress.
  • She tried writing prompts.
  • She tried taking a break.
  • She tried to study more craft, looking for some magic secret that she'd missed.
  • She tried to love her writing again, but she couldn't find her magic.

But nothing worked.

She knew how to write. But she didn't know how to write with her Writer's Brain.

Hi, I'm Rachel. And if you haven't figured it out yet, this "she" is me.

I was an unhappy and unproductive writer.

I hated the stories I was telling. I hated writing generally. I could never keep a consistent writing routine. And my brain was always being a jerk to me.

But I couldn't give writing up. I knew in my heart that I was a writer. I just had to figure out what I was missing.


My degree in fiction writing gave me a strong knowledge of craft, but I still didn't know how to master my Writer's Brain.

The issue wasn't with learning about characters and plots and the elements of a good story, but how to get the writing done, how to conquer writer's block, and how to love my writing practice.

I wanted so desperately to be a happy writer, a productive writer, a "real" writer.


Nothing was getting done because I didn't know how to master my Writer's Brain.

So, I set out to fix it. I studied psychological techniques and tricks. I tested out methods, weeding out what worked and what didn't. I studied what it meant to be both "writer" and "me."

Through all my research and trial-and-error, I determined I needed to conquer 4 key elements to master my Writer's Brain and become a happy and productive writer:



Fears, Uncertainties, and Doubts (FUDs)

Writer's DNA

I'd explored each of the elements previously throughout my life. But it wasn't until I fused them together and studied how they influenced each other and my writing that I was able to master my Writer's Brain.

Here's What I Did:

I sat down to write a story only I could write using my unique Writer's DNA. I learned who I was as a writer, what I wrote, what I read, what inspired me, what my process was, and why I even wrote at all. (Learn more about DNA).

set strong intentions of why I wanted to share this story with the world. I fell in love with my writing again, studied what I was doing and why I was doing it, and made plans to transform my writing dreams into my reality. (Learn more about intention).

I disciplined myself with an actionable schedule to ensure the words made it onto the page consistently. I cemented my writing as a habit and commanded the muse to show up. (Learn more about discipline).

And I suited up with armor and battled my fears, uncertainties, and doubts (FUDs) like perfectionism and fear of what others would think and that evil inner critic that told me I wasn't good enough. (Learn more about FUDs).

By focusing my intentions, mastering discipline, conquering my fears, uncertainties, and doubts (FUDs), and doing it all in a way that made sense for me using my Writer's DNA,

I created a writing life I loved.

Now, I write the stories I want, on my timeline. I get the words on the page consistently. I have the muse by my side inspiring me every session. And I got that evil inner critic to go away.

Now, I feel full of creativity. I'm confident when I approach the page. I write with courage.

Now, I know the excuses we use to avoid writing, and how to beat them. I know the fears of rejection, the weight of impostor syndrome and self-doubt, and how to conquer them.

Now, I know what it’s like to watch your writing dreams live out of reach, and how to go after what I want, achieve my word-count goals, and transform my writing dreams into my reality.

And it’s amazing.

I mastered my Writer's Brain, and it gave me a writing life I love full of courage, consistency, confidence, and creativity.


And it was all because of 1 simple formula, the Write Brain Formula:

"Rachel is all about real, good writing. She discusses real issues that writers face (hello, woman writers!) along with the nitty-gritty of practically finishing your work. Plus her posts are LONG. Everytime I sit down to one, I feel like I’m a kid in a candy store, getting ready to devour a long-awaited treat." – Alexis Truitt,

Now, I want to help you get the happy and productive writing life you deserve, too.

I distilled my process down into 4 courses. Each course helps you master a different element of the Writer's Brain. Enroll in each course one-by-one, or grab all 4 in the bundle below.

Writing a novel is a LONGGG process that requires a lot of really hard work.

You need to figure out how to get your mind in the right place so that when it comes down to doing it, you do it.

Anytime I’ve talked to her, it’s been a thoughtful and in-depth conversation where we really dig deep trying to understand each other and how to help each other.

Immediately she’ll become this supportive figure you’ve always been looking for, cheering you on and making you feel like you can do anything. And if that “anything” is finally finishing your novel, well, I can’t think of anyone better to cheer you on!" – E.M. Welsh,

What's the refund policy?

Because you get immediate access to all course materials, we're unable to take back any or all used or unused course materials.

Can I just do this myself? Can I find this info for free somewhere?

Sure! If you're a great DIY-er, go research and study and apply, my friend. There's a TON of information out there on the internet.

But be honest with yourself: Have you tried to do this before? Have you set deadlines for yourself? Have you tried creating a new writing life?

And, most importantly, have you succeeded?

This is the approach I took when I was trying to uproot and reignite my writing life. And it was hard. There's SO MUCH information out there, and not all of it is valuable. I needed a step-by-step plan of what to do and how to do it organized in a way that actually worked for me. And I couldn't find anything that satisfied my needs completely.

So, I made the exact thing I needed and turned it into these courses. This is the shortcut so you don't have to go through the same long process I did.

If your DIY approach hasn’t worked yet, I doubt it’s going to work now. You need structure, accountability, and ongoing motivational support to make a drastic change like uprooting and changing your writing life. This course gives you that.

This is a bit of an investment…

You're right. This IS an investment. This is an investment into yourself, your dreams, and your writing. If you want to take your writing seriously and you don't want this writing thing to be just a hobby anymore, you need to invest in your writing life. If you want to grow, you have to put in some work. You have to invest up-front, but when you accomplish your writing goals and transform into the writer you want to be, it'll all be worth it.

Choose to consciously invest in yourself and your writing in ways that will push you towards your achieving your goals. The Writer's Brain pushes you towards those goals.

But, I'm a writer. I for realz don't have much money.

Hey, I get that. I'm a writer too. Finances are hard.

You have options, my friend. Because I believe this is important and I want it to be acessible for you.

It's not the right time. Can I get it later?

Hey, I get that. You do you.

But consider this: How is your writing life suffering by continuing to procrastinate? How long will you procrastinate on laying the proper foundation for your writing life? How long will you still try to make it work, when it's not working?

The truth is, it’s never going to feel like the right time. At a certain point you have to stop waiting and make things happen for yourself.

If you want to start living a happy + productive writing life, the best time to get started is today.
