I am your mentor, accountability partner, confidential sounding board, strategist, creativity coach, guide and partner.
When might you need to hire a coach:
You know what you want to do, but are having a hard time doing it.
You're bogged down with obstacles and need motivation.
You're not making steady progress with a project or your career.
You care about your project and your career but need help with focus.
You need to learn how to better manage time, prioritize, organize, set goals, complete projects.
You need strategies to deal with specific challenges.
You want to make a permanent shift to a higher level of performance in your writing.
Coaching can be a short-term or ongoing relationship in which the ideas shared and the skills learned endure beyond the coaching sessions. You are not paying for short-term benefits but changes to achieve goals and maximize your writing potential. Coaching is always focused on your wants, needs and goals.
Several years ago, I started a group to help writers complete and publish a book, of any genre. With a series of classes aimed at the submission, marketing and publishing processes, I worked with 12 writers for 16 weeks. By the end of the first classes, 3 writers were published or had contracts. The group continued and within a year, 80% had sold or published their works. A second group began with similar results.
My specialty is working with serious authors who want to publish their writing, develop marketing plans and platforms, and move forward in their writing careers.
A writing coach is a guide directing you on a path
of personal and professional growth as a writer.
