Writing Tribes

I have two free writing tribes where writers can access advice, information and feedback from other tribe members. You can join us at Nicole’ Writing Tribe (fiction and non-fiction writing) and Business Writing Tribe (business and content writing)

Online Courses

I have developed a 10minute method for those who would like to write their book but feel they haven’t got the time. We are all busy – that’s not an excuse – its a reason in today’s busy world. My 10minute method has been repeatedly tried and tested in my two writing tribes. If you like to learn online -below are the links to my non-fiction and fiction online courses to show you how to write your first book in ten minutes a day.

If you follow the 10minute method and write for 10 minutes (or more) every day – you WILL finish your book.

My ‘How to write your first non-fiction book in ten minutes a day’ is available for £170.

My ‘How to write your first fiction book in ten minutes a day’ is available for £170.

'It all started with grabbing a coffee offline with her and before I knew it I was in awe of her experience and knowledge. Since then I've partnered up with her on varying different projects, some personal and others as part of the LocalX business I co-founded.  She's been an absolute pleasure to deal with both helping ghostwrite an article for me but also with her non-fiction online course, which has been fantastic to put more structure into something I've postponed for quite some time.  Lastly her help with communications and policy for LocalX has been outstanding and often she has gone way beyond the call of duty to over deliver on numerous projects.  Wouldn't hesitate to recommend her, you won't regret it!'  Alexandra Galviz, LinkedIn Top Voice 2017 & 2018, LinkedIn Branding & Marketing, Community Creator
'What an amazing day! Thanks so much Nicole Johnston. I wasn't sure what to expect but I knew I really needed to take action on my long awaited words! The format was clear and thorough. and I came away having achieved all the stated objectives.
It's said that we all have a book inside us, so watch this space, and if you're thinking of putting pen to paper for your book - I can't recommend Nicole highly enough.'
Jackie Groundsell, Owner and CEO at 1230 The Women's Company
'I have not shared my writing before and sharing it here gave me the confidence to continue to write. Believing now that my writing is not to sit in the computer but to be of benefit to others too and may even change lives. The feedback was given gently/kindly with information/teaching added. Thank you Nicole Johnston. It was so useful.'    Maureen Tuitt, Therapist, Group Leader and Facilitator at Insight Specialist Counselling Service
 'Although I am a professional writer of sorts - a journalist - I'd never dared hope that I could write anything creative or fiction-like because I'd set the bar too high. This group has enabled me to explore other forms of writing but more importantly get positive feedback which has made an enormous difference. Thank you Nicole.'  Anne Gould, Journalist, Writer, Editor and Video Trainer at WorkingWordz Video
'Nicole's group provides a safe and supportive environment for exploring your writing. Having a daily target of 10minutes writing is so achievable and I was delighted with the amount I got written in just 7 days.'  Jane Jackson, Author and Energy Practitioner at Free Your Emotions
