5 Steps to a Productive Writing Retreat

In recorded training calls and live group calls by phone, Skype or webcast, I'll take you through my proprietary Two Days to Write coaching process, step by step.

Here's what we'll cover:

Step #1 - Clear your mind, your calendar and your writing environment.

In your first one-hour audio session, l'll show you how to start decluttering your attitude, your schedule and your writing desk with fun, easy-to-do tips.

RESULT: You'll feel more happy, focused and prepared to tackle your writing project.


"I thought the course was very well designed.

"I was able to get back into submitting some magazine queries after taking Marla's course, something that had been put on the back burner since I started focusing more on my copywriting business.

"I would recommend Two Days to Write to any writer looking to make significant headway towards a writing goal."

Louise Julig, business copywriter, journalist and blogger


Step #2 - Choose a specific, career-building writing goal.

In your second one-hour audio lesson, I'll show you how to be daring and decisive with your writing goals.

You'll overcome your writing fears, revive your dreams and reacquaint yourself with your long-term career vision. Then you'll choose a specific project and writing goal for your two-day intensive. It'll be something strategic. Something doable, too.

RESULT: You'll feel brave, focused and ready to write.


"I was scared to commit to my writing.

"It was always easier to say 'I'm so busy, I don't have time.' I felt nervous I would blow the intensive off and I wasn't sure how it would work for me.

"But Two Days to Write is a great use of technology and I surprised myself by not getting distracted.

"I drafted and polished a story and revised two chapters of my novel over the weekend. I was surprisingly productive.

"I would absolutely recommend Two Days to Write to other writers. It worked for me!"

Kimberly Marcus, children's writer


Step #3 - Map your time, energy and writing benchmarks with a step-by-step, Two Days to Write Blueprint.

In your third audio lesson, I'll help you structure your two-day writing intensive using my simple Blueprint template.

RESULT: You'll feel prepared and excited to tackle your two-day writing goal. Knowing you have a realistic, strategic plan in place, your anxiety will disappear.


Dawn Lyons"Marla gave us many helpful techniques to motivate ourselves and keep ourselves productive over the long haul.

"After taking the Two Days to Write intensive, I feel I have a solid working system in place that I can use for pretty much any work-related task, whether it's the actual writing, marketing my services, or doing my billing.

"Besides that, the workshop got me excited about writing again."

Martha Spizziri, freelance writer

(Nothing beats the feeling of knowing you're spending your time, talent and energy on the writing projects that matter most)


" The workshop and the coaching calls I had with Marla helped me focus on a goal that had been evading me for quite a while. I wrote and published three new blog posts and drafted two guest posts in two days.

Marijke Vroomen Durning, health writer and blogger
