Okay, let’s get real here.
Writing is difficult. Really difficult. Like, sit down at your computer, stare at a blank screen, and focus so hard that you start to sweat blood, kind of difficult. I know — I’ve been there. Every writer has, I’m sure of it. And it’s not helped by all the stuff we have going on in our lives. Writing is difficult. Remember I said that, just a few lines ago? After a hard days work, our lizard brain wants nothing more than to mindlessly surf the internet, play a computer game, or binge-watch the latest show, while our human brain screams to us from behind muffled glass that, “this isn’t what we should be doing!”
And even when you are writing, the craft can always be improved. Good enough, is never good enough. Readers can be ruthless and if you’re not constantly delivering the goods, distraction is always just a tap away.
This is where coaching comes in.
Sometimes you could use a hand. Whether you’re a new writer wanting step-by-step guidance for crafting your very first story, or an old hand, who’s written more works than I’ve lived years — sitting down with someone as passionate about writing as you are can help break through writer’s block, clarify goals, and illuminate aspects of your craft that might still need extra polish.
That’s what I’m offering — private one-on-one sessions, in which we’ll examine your work, clarify your goals, explore possible options going forward, and then follow-up in future chats to ensure those goals are being met.
