StoryBrand – the only way to tell your story

for writing that blogpost from start to finish
[template and blog writing schedule in daily format. so a person writing every day, can publish weekly. in a daily format. and if someone falls behind on their schedule, then stay on the daily path. but still publish consistently. even if one does not meet the weekly goal exactly.]
for writing your blogpost in wordpress
[organize idea. speed idea. after FREE writing, put major ideas – headers – on whiteboard using post-it notes. arrange for good thought flow. then insert spaces for images. on whiteboard – 97 cents each at walmart. go to wordpress. rearrange thought per the whiteboard outline. can i template this process – like geoffrey’s PPM constant contact? can template the entire writing process? yes. (take pics of this process for published blog template) (writing on electronic device is too linear and too limited for my brain) yes. in draft form. then publish the template.]
for writing that longer creative piece – short story or a book
[another template idea. for the process, do something similar for writing a book – tadpole.]
template for writing that perfect email
fro writing that email that gets results.
link to a “before” and “after” email.
