Writing Coach

Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed in your writing life? Are you struggling to make progress? Have you hit a roadblock in the creative process? I can help.

As a Hope*Writers certified writing coach I help writers enjoy the process of writing again. By asking powerful questions, I guide writers to discover their own unique voice, get unstuck and help new and experienced writers develop attainable goals, one step at a time.

If you’re looking to:

  • Welcome “writer” as part of your identity

  • Develop regular writing rhythms and improve time management

  • Learn strategies to silence your inner critic

  • Identify your reader

  • Eliminate feeling overwhelmed and instead have clear action steps

  • Discover tips to structure your story (whether fictional or non-fiction)

  • Grow your platform but stay true to yourself

 

 

 

 

 

Are you ready to kick your inner critic to the curb? As a recovering perfectionist, I know the disapproving tsk-tsk of the inner critic. I’ve named mine, pesky Patricia. She mocked me during the four-year journey to publish my first book. But you don’t have to deal with her alone. As your coach, I’ll ask powerful questions and listen intently, allowing you the space to discover your own answers to get unstuck, find clarity, and achieve your creative goals. As a chronic illness warrior, I offer hope for the hurting, and I enjoy working with authors who create amid struggle, illness, or hardship.

 

What does each coaching session look like?

  • Meet with me via Zoom for a 50-minute video conference. 

  • I will guide you through strategic questions designed to bring you clarity and direction on your specific writing goals. 

  • Leave each session with a clear action plan for your next steps.
