For Writers

A productivity and creativity studio for authors.

Hi, I’m Lauren Layne. I wrote my first book in 2011, and have been published since 2013. Since then, I’ve published 40+ books, and every stage of my career, I’ve been in continual awe of the incredible online resources available to writers. 

This page is my place to give back to the community, to help new and aspiring writers the way I given help early on in my career. This is my place to geek out about apps, content calendars, outlines, note-taking, and even the proper way to name a file.

I’m glad you’re here!
