It’s December. The holidays are right around the corner. That means that 2015 is almost here. Yikes! But I still have so much to do!

We’ve all been there. Regardless of whether you celebrate Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Ramadan, all or none of the above, you’re probably swamped with massive to-do lists to wrap up the year. Last minute gift shopping, cooking to feed your visiting relatives, planning your trips to maximize your vacation, or even cleaning out your garage are all great ways to end 2014. But what is that that’s tugging at your heart strings? Perhaps it’s your writing goals that are still sitting on the backburner where you left them. Uh-oh.

Do not fear! The Writers Studio is coming! And it just might be the answer to all your writing woes.

Conquer your New Years’ Resolutions

Do you have an action plan to finish your novel or screenplay? If not, the Writers Studio is your answer. What if I told you that you don’t need to wait until December of 2015 to complete your resolutions? Come February, you could make huge strides towards your writing goals at the Writers Studio! It’s an easy solution to your never-ending list. Creating a series of smaller goals to reach your ultimate destination is a great way to stay on track.

Your Wish is Our Command

Are you an online student? Does your location make it difficult to take an onsite class, but you love the in-class environment? The Writers Studio is a fantastic reason to fly or drive out to Los Angeles and enjoy a weekend of face-to-face interaction with fellow writers. Plus, you can’t beat the weather, so why not have the best of both worlds?

One Less Thing To Worry About

In the midst of chaos, finding a quiet time to write is pretty much impossible. So let the holidays be the time to run about and take care of business. But as soon as the craziness of the holidays is over, you can start your year by taking care of your writing needs. After the 4-days are over, you can pat yourself on the back and know that sometimes, it is possible to do it all.

Gift Your “Friend”

We all have that “friend” who has time for everything EXCEPT time to write. The Writers Studio is THE perfect gift for your friend… who just happens to have the same name as you, and hmm, even looks like you. Oh, wait a second. It’s the perfect gift for you! What other opportunity do you have to etch four days out of your busy life to work on your novel, screenplay, pilot, or memoir? You don’t even have time to have writers block, because by the time it hits, you’re already done. And let me just say, you deserve it.
