Enjoy the benefits of experienced assistance and structure for getting your writing done while having the flexibility to choose your coaching session times and frequency. Coaching sessions can include advance review of new material, with feedback and discussion on our call.
For memoir writers, I help with all aspects of book planning, including:
→ focusing the book’s central topic
→ outlining the structure of the book
→ identifying key theme(s) you’ll draw through the story
→ planning the book’s format (framed, braided, associative)
Here are a few of the ways you can benefit by working with me as your writing coach.
Are You Considering a Book?
I offer creative solutions. As part of our one-to-one work together we’ll uncover your storyline (plot) and identify themes and key turning points to build your book around. If it’s a nonfiction book you have in mind, I can help you plan, prepare, and complete a quality book.
Do You Have a Memoir in Progress?
I help writers stay true to their goals for their book, reviewing chapters as they’re written. Writers learn to use a consistent, natural tone and receive feedback on craft, including character development, pacing, and use of scene and dialog.
Are You Writing Other Nonfiction?
Informational, self-help, and how-to books require a format appropriate to their topic. I help identify the most effective format, assist with the outline as needed, and provide helpful feedback as the book develops.
