Writing the Chunky Method with Allie Pleiter

For years, Allie has been teaching writers her famous “Chunky Method” of time management, and on February 9th, she’ll be teaching it live at our February meeting.

Do you find you can’t seem to finish that book you’ve been writing? Do you want to write faster and get published but fear squelching your muse?
Allie’s innovative Chunky Method offers practical, real-world productivity advice in an easy to read and inspiring workbook. You will follow a step-by-step plan to identify your unique writing “Chunk” and wield it to create a solid plan that works “even when life gets in the way.”

It doesn’t matter if this is your first manuscript or your 20th-writers of every experience level have “gotten Chunky” with dramatic results. Whatever your writing style, The Chunky Method Handbook will help you chart a individualized path to your creative writing goals.


You are invited! Join us from 11:30 am -12:30 pm for the pre-meeting lunch at:
Golden Corral
6129 Glenwood Ave
Raleigh, NC
The post-meeting coffee is announced after the meeting.
