The Writer's Practice Regimen
In these videos, you learn about the foundation of the Practice Regimen: the writer's survey, "Peak", "Mastery", and Mason's own experience testing out the drills. By the end of this workout, you'll have a crystal clear idea of what the Regimen can do for you, and how you can begin.
Warm-Up (the observation workout)
If our last step in this journey we’re on is mastering fiction writing, what’s our first step? Most of us answered that question intuitively from a young age: we observed the craft. It’s how we developed the desire for mastery of writing in the first place. But according to the writer survey, when we rushed to dive into our own creations, we lost out on a faster, more fulfilling path of improvement. The drills in the Warm-Up will change that.
Practice (the skill acquisition workout)
Observing the craft of writing from the outside is not enough. Even doing the actual writing isn’t enough. Your progress in the craft will flatline unless you do the drills in the Practice workout. After applying the necessary principles of deliberate practice, you will accelerate your improvement to an exponential rate.
Play (the experimentation workout)
In this workout you finally get to play around with your writing, to try new things and follow your instincts, to cement your voice, and to develop personalized mastery. This is an expertise that’s customized to you. It employs deliberate practice, but it’s larger than any one principle. It’s the culmination of your entire warm-up and practice workouts, and the creator of your unique, stand-out identity on the page.
