Confidence Jumpstart

Confidence Jumpstart Course

Smash through the roadblocks keeping you from writing your book.

An Online Writing Course from 21-Time New York Times Bestselling Author Jerry Jenkins, Author of the Left Behind Series


What if I’m not good enough?
Do I have what it takes to be a writer?
I keep getting stuck, what’s the point in trying anymore?

Even Jerry, with over 60 years of writing experience and 200+ published books, has experienced the crippling self-doubt that plagues many writers. 

Since he’s been there, done that, he knows exactly what it takes to blast through the fear blocking your path. You’ll gain insight into today’s publishing market, refine your creative process, and learn skills that will ignite your confidence—and, most importantly, get writing again.

Even if you’re completely stuck. Even if you don't believe you have the time. Even if you’ve NEVER been happy with a thing you’ve written.

Isn’t it strange?

You want so badly to write a book, but you just can’t.


It's no secret. The process feels like climbing Mount Everest.

Everywhere you turn, another icy incline threatens to keep you from the top:

  • The fear of rejection
  • The battle to stay motivated
  • The failure to create something you’re truly happy with
  • The voice in your head that wonders whether your message is really worth all this trouble

And worse, once you’ve finished, you’ll face the overwhelming business phase of writing, like:

  • The headache of finding a literary agent
  • Getting a publisher to actually accept your manuscript
  • Or navigating the treacherous waters of self-publishing

If only you could focus on the art of writing, and let someone who LIKES that stuff take care of the business side!

But that’s not how it is.

You know if you don’t do something, no one will read your book. But you don’t know what to do. So you wind up doing nothing.

The worst part? Weeks of doing nothing turn into months and eventually years—and your dream of finally writing a book becomes just a painful memory.

It’s time to get off the fence and write.

In this course, 21-time New York Times bestselling author Jerry Jenkins reveals his proven plan for overcoming doubt and finishing your book.

It’s designed to do exactly what it’s named after—give you the spark you need to gain the confidence to write consistently.

You’ll get 14 strategic lessons, 7 carefully crafted assignments, and 32 recommended resources to help you scale the mountain with renewed confidence.

Thick-Skinned Manuscript Critique

Normal Value: $99

An editor can tell within the first two pages whether your novel is worth reading further.

How do they know? By the quality and the clarity of your writing. Unless your manuscript grabs them by the throat immediately and hangs on, it's going straight into the reject pile.

It's time to become a ferocious self-editor and transform your writing forever.

In this intensive three-hour workshop, Jerry Jenkins reveals his proven process for editing your novel so you can get an editor hooked from the first page.

You’ll get to look over Jerry’s shoulder and see exactly how he edits, and more importantly, WHY it works better.

Plus, you’ll get the before-and-after copies of each of the 10 manuscripts that Jerry edits so you can see how he did it.

After experiencing the Thick-Skinned Manuscript Critique workshop, you'll be able to:

  • Write a spellbinding opener that grabs your reader by the throat
  • Spot redundancies, clichés, and common errors from a mile away
  • Supercharge your novel with Jerry's ferocious self-editing secrets
  • Make every word count so readers keep turning those pages
  • Self-edit your writing the way Jerry does his own novels
  • Finish your novel, applying the best principles of powerful writing
  • Send your manuscript to publishers with confidence

This editing course will help you hone your writing skills and craft prose editors will want to read!
