Do you need a writing coach?

People often write to me, asking for help with their writing project. Sometimes, they don’t have the money to hire a ghostwriter, but their idea is very good. My advice for you, if you fall into this category, is to write the book yourself and hire a writing coach to help you through the process. Yes, it takes time, but it is a lot cheaper!

I really want to help many people write their stories. I believe this world needs more writers!

Despite what the critics will tell you, many people could learn to write. It takes time and perseverance, but you can do it!

Finding my writing voice was a pivotal moment in my writing career. I remember the day I realized that I had a voice and that it was unique. It was a huge accomplishment for me.

You can find your voice, too, but you will need to write many pages before you discover your style. I would estimate that the average writer pens hundreds of thousands of words before discovering his or her voice.

It’s also is wise to read books that you enjoy, noticing how the author tells their story. If you find yourself getting caught up in the book, read it twice, so that you can study the style and techniques. Enjoy the process!

If you need a writing coach, please feel free to email me anytime!
