Writing Coach and Advisor
How can I help you?
There are times everyone needs to look at their life and try to figure out – What am I doing? How do I do it better? A good Writing Coach can help you by taking an objective look at how you set up your life, use your time, and approach the process of writing. I will make suggestions on how to order and structure your life so that you can make efficient use of the time you have available to write. To use a phrase from Flannery O’Connor, I can help you set up a ‘habit of being’ that will allow you to be the best writer you are capable of becoming.
In addition, I can offer specific advice on agents, marketing, and how and where to publish. I will work with you to write query letters and design a plan for maximizing your publishing opportunities. I will help you design a marketing strategy that is specific to the book you are writing. I cannot guarantee you will publish your book or, if you do, make it onto the New York Times best-seller list. No one can do that. Anyone who claims otherwise is not telling you the truth.
There is an initial 2 hour minimum commitment for this work. We can set up the coaching so that we actually work in blocks of time that range from 30 minutes to 4 hours, one or more times per week.
