For New Writers

So, you have the urge to write a book, and there is a story that wants to be expressed. Are you inspired to write but don’t know where to start? Do you want to be an artist or writer, but think don’t have a creative bone in your body? Actually you do. Until now, no one has helped draw it out of you. For some people it comes naturally, others need a little coaching or guidance.

For Experienced Writers

Are you writing from the core of your being with fresh, potent, and authentic personal expression? Is your inner author’s voice in need of assistance to ignite your passion again? Call me and let’s talk about how I can help you.

Here are some of the ways I coach all writers:

I listen for the core message of your story. That is your anchor.

When you get distracted or confused, I bring you back to the reason why you are writing this book. I remind you of your purpose when you may have forgotten it.

I may help to draw the story out of you. I look for the parts of your writing that come alive and inspire me, and then I read them back to you. We brainstorm together to find the best way to get through a difficult scene.

To assist with dialogue and word choice, I provide you with charts that clarify grammar and punctuation, commonly misused words, etc. and I share articles that help with various aspects of writing.

Coaching the Whole Process

New beginnings are exhilarating, re-energizing and life affirming. They also can come with anxiety, fear of the unknown, and a feeling that you’ve bitten off more than you can chew. I guide you through the writing and (if you wish) the self-publishing process to help you to see the way forward. Showing you the larger picture takes away the stress and frustration of dealing with a new learning curve.

My intention is to help you enrich your creativity and improve your writing. My wish is that you not only experience a boost to your creativity, but you also find peace of mind knowing that I am your partner in this process.

I would consider it a privilege to work on your book with you. Your book is a gift to be shared with the world, and I will help you make it everything you want it to be.
