The Sharon CassanoLochman
Method to Writing Success
Wanting and doing are not always the same thing.
I wish I had a mirror that reflected back in time, so you could see the parallels between my writing journey and yours. I’ve shared in your dreams, frustrations, insecurities, setbacks, and goals. I’ve shared your writer’s block, questions, and concerns about what to do next, how to find a reading partner, and how to join a writing group. I’ve experienced all the highs and lows associated with writing.
I have invested the time and money, so you don’t have to!
Where I hope our paths diverge is in the time and money it cost to get where I am today. I am a multiple award-winning, #1 best-selling author with a certified publishing company. I was not an overnight success. In fact, my story is riddled with countless hours second-guessing every step along my journey. I have gone from A-Z, spent tens-of-thousands of dollars on retreats, writing programs, publishing options, and marketing trends.
The beginning, the middle, and the end.
The end result of my challenging writing journey is the development of a three-step method toward publication. It is the Sharon CassanoLochman Method to Writing Success. Just like a story, there is a beginning, a middle, and an end to all writing projects.
My mission—my vision—my belief is that writing is a stair-step process best learned through writing.
Anyone can hit the publish button.
Never in our history has it been easier to publish.
The unfortunate fact associated with the ease of publishing is that far too many books are published before they’re ready! Aspiring authors are either unaware that their book is not ready, or they lack the connections or insight to proper publishing practices and industry standards.
I believe that most authors want to publish a book of quality, and if they knew what was wrong with their book they would fix it.
You can’t fix what you don’t know.
If you’ve found me, it is because you have already felt the writing nudge—the magnetic pull of the pen to the paper—and you’re searching for the answer to the how of writing.
How would it feel if you could say that you are a writer?
How would that change your life?
I will always remember the day when I was able to say with confidence that I was a writer. It was no longer a yearning or a burning desire. I was a writer. Maybe that’s who you are as well.
What would your life look like if you included writing into your schedule? I know how satisfying it can be. I want you to know for yourself how it feels to finish a story that’s stalked your writing dreams for possibly decades!
How would it feel to transform your life from wanting to write to simply writing?
What’s standing between you and your writing goals? Are you afraid to write? Are you unsure of where to start? Authentic writing is not a term paper. It does not flow from outlined material or sound like a dictionary. Authentic writing doesn’t sound like a mechanical voice or something from someone else’s book.
Authentic writing evolves from a union of the heart and head.
Write from your heart and edit with your head.

Feedback from Jeanmarie T.
“Some people need to learn the art of writing, creatively. My case is the 80/20 rule. A combination of practice (20%) and the discipline to do so (80%). Sharon gave direction and off we went, writing, as a group, (online), for a timed period over a lunch hour. Bam! The wake-up call happened and now I envision the story; framing the tale, identifying the process. The skin in the game is my time and dedication to the process. Sharon taught the old dog a few new tricks while igniting some old ones. Looking forward to many more opportunities to meet with her."
