HOW THE 12 WEEK YEAR SAVED MY CAREER
I'm Trevor Thrall
Author of The 12 Week Year for Writers.
How would your life change if you could produce your best writing more consistently?
Over the past 20 years, I’ve used the 12 Week Year as both a professor and an entrepreneur to help me write millions of words on a wide range of topics.
But when I was a new assistant professor, I was staring at a blank white board wondering how I would ever manage to publish enough over the next six years to get tenure.
The truth is that as a young person, I was one of the least efficient and least organized people you’d ever met. It took me a long time to finish my dissertation and before I got my first academic job I had never been a consistent writer or publisher of high-quality work.
Thankfully it was then I discovered the 12 Week Year. Embracing the system transformed my ability to plan and execute my writing. It was so successful that I managed to get tenure while helping raise three kids and juggling a start up business on the side.
