you are working on a book, essay, or short story, assistance and
support from a knowledgeable source is a gift. A book coach can
make writing smoother, more organized, and more efficient. But hiring
a writer to work with is a very personal decision - the key is finding
someone you can communicate with easily and comfortably, someone
who asks the right questions and then really listens.
style is very personal, not simply "a critique partner." I listen
to your ideas and ask questions that hopefully extend your story/essay/book
-- we work together on all writing skills, including making sure
there is tension, depth, intrigue, heart.
While I can't
promise you a successful contract, I can provide you the practical
support you will need as you navigate your emotions and intellect
from "birthing your baby" to keeping on a writing schedule to
bring your story to completion.
