The sprint has really opened my eyes to what I can do, even if I only have 10 minutes between meetings, and how you just need to start and you will be amazed what you can produce.

- A.L Moore, professor and author

I’ve engaged in several sprints. I find them helpful every time for motivation, accountability, and tips.

Like committing to a walk or a bike ride with a friend, the sprint helped me keep my promise to myself and write daily.

Hi there, we’re Bec and Chris, your

personal sprint coaches for the week

Getting off the starting blocks with any writing project can be tough. It’s also normal for things to slow down when you’re part way through.

That’s when you need a sprint – a pop of energy to get you motivated and moving in the right direction.

We designed this sprint based on our combined, 30 years’ experience coaching and cajoling writers to write.

It’s fast, fun and is just what you need to get your writing moving again.

 Good luck!

I enjoyed the challenges provided by the sprint. Whether you’re an experienced or new writer you can benefit and deepen your awareness of your process.

Liliana Pop

Researcher & consultant

A great initiative for motivation and focus. Good daily tips and nice to have the personal support of contacting the organisers by email.

Andrew Graham

PhD student

Participating in the 7-Day Sprint was a fun way to experiment and find different approaches to my writing. It was challenging, inspiring and motivational.

Patty Adams

Fiction author

The writing sprint worked well for me as a way to get back into a habit of daily writing. Chris and Bec provide useful tips and tricks to start the process and then to keep at it, as well as valuable ongoing support. 
Lucy Malouf

Food and cookery writer

The sprint does help tremendously because it helps you to reflect on your writing day by day and it teaches you some skills that can be useful to encourage writing.
Melanie Wieschalla


I signed up for the Sprint to retake a big project. The experience has helped me boost my confidence as a writer and overcome the block I had been feeling for months. I absolutely recommend signing up for it!

Analía Gómez Vidal


The structured, guided format of the sprint really kept me motivated – I looked forward to the morning email from Bec and Chris with the day’s writing prompts or reflections.

Nina Fudge

Academic writer

This week has helped me to remove some of the blockages, caused by the pressure that I put on myself. Thanks to Prolifiko I’ve found new ways of working and I’ll keep writing a little bit every day.

Miriam Pelusi

PhD researcher

The 7-day sprint is an incredibly helpful kickstart for your writing goals. Chris and Bec use evidence-based techniques to help you commit and remain accountable to your writing.

The 4 secrets to sprint success!

#1. Keep moving forwards

Move forwards quickly (but in a way that works for you). Now’s not the time to look back, obsess over detail or let perfectionism take over. 

#2. Train daily

Move your project forwards every day – even in a small way. Connecting with your writing each day means you keep your muscles warm and this helps you to maintain momentum.

#3. Set a personal best

Make your 7-day writing goal personal to you. Stretch yourself but be realistic. Set a sprint goal that you can meet with everything else going on in your life.

#4. Have a cool down routine 

Check in with yourself after each writing session. Ask how your session went and what you’d change. Use your reflections to adapt your approach throughout the sprint.
