Coaching Packages

A one on one coaching package might be right for you if

 

  • You have a clear writing project in mind and you need guidance, structure and support to get started.
  • You can find even a sliver of time in your day to write. (Even ten minutes is a start!)
  • You have a story to tell or a book to write and you can’t wait any longer to get started.
  • You’re not sure your writing resonates with your audience.
  • You feel resistant, frustrated, angry or hopeless when you write.
  • You need clear, meaningful feedback on your writing to help you move forward.
  • You need tools to help overcome inevitable resistance and distraction.
  • You know that accountability helps you move forward.
  • You know you can’t put it off anymore, it’s time to start.
A one on one coaching package might not be for you if

 

  • You are looking for a substantive, structural or line edit. (You will be better served by an editor.)
  • You are looking for help and guidance to get your book published by a traditional publisher, or to self-publish. (You will be better served by a publishing consultant.)
  • You want to write your book as fast as possible so you can start raking in the cash.
  • You’re hoping for a personalized introduction to an agent or publisher.
  • You can’t carve out a minimum of 1.5 hours in your week (in whatever increments you like — 10 minutes at a time, or all at once, or anything in between) to focus on writing.
