Your Writing Dreams Coming True

Apply Now

You have a writing dream

Maybe there's a novel you've always wanted to write, or perhaps a memoir sits in the back of your mind wanting to come out into the world. Maybe you dream of writing poetry or starting a blog or maybe you just wish you could keep a personal diary for your children or grandchildren to read when they are older. 

You very much want to fulfill this writing dream. You want it so much that your whole life feels dissatisfying because this dream hasn't come true. Even more than dissatisfying, sometimes you feel like a complete failure.

However, you still don't write, because you tend to talk yourself out of it. This is frivolous, you think. It's not useful. There are so many other things to do. What's the point?

But your soul is continuously whispering to you, "This is important." Your heart aches, because it knows following through on this dream is the key to a fulfilling life.

There's something going on here that's deep and meaningful. This dream is so special that it doesn't leave you alone. Even if you haven't written in years, you still think about writing, you still want to write, and you still long to fulfill this dream.

You are officially sick and tired of this pattern. You are ready to write. But how? And when? And can you really trust yourself to do it? And, by the way, did I mention? Writing can be really freaking scary!!!

You don't write, not only because you think your creative life is frivolous, but also because:

  • You are frightened of writing badly
  • You believe your writing idea is silly and not serious enough
  • You have trouble picking a writing idea. Is it right? What if you pick the wrong one?
  • You limit yourself with your process, believing you need to write in a way that is not fun for you
  • You are terrified of the vulnerability of sharing your truth
  • You are scared of rejection
  • You have actually been rejected by a teacher, a literary agent, or even a friend or family member, and you don't want to experience that again
  • You are overwhelmingly embarrassed when you think about someone else reading your writing

Your relationship to writing is hindered by deep and tender creative wounds. In order to protect yourself, you don't pursue writing, which is totally understandable, but in doing so, you keep yourself from a life where you get to feel the satisfaction of fulfilling your creative dreams.

You know life can be so much better than this, but it's challenging to recover from creative wounds, and that's where I come in.

I'm a writing coach for women like you, women who know it's time to fulfill their writing dream, who would benefit from partnering with a tender, understanding coach, and who also need a little bit of external accountability.

With my online coaching program you and I will work together to make your writing dreams come true.

Here's how it works:

  • You'll start things off by filling out a workbook to help you clarify your writing idea and make sure it truly lights you up. If you have trouble picking writing ideas, the workbook will help you with that too.
  • After that you'll do an exercise to help you set a small writing goal for the week ahead. The goal will be one you pick for yourself, so it will be do-able and will work for your life.
  • At the end of the week, you'll check in with me in our private 1-on-1 online chat space. You'll answer a series of questions to help you reflect on your writing life. You'll talk about your weekly goal, and what it felt like to either accomplish it or not. No judgment, though. Your check-in is an opportunity for you to dig deep and realize what's truly going on.
  • As your writing coach, I'll respond to you with tips, suggestions, reflections, follow up questions, and any tools I have in my toolbox that could benefit you. I won't hold back on helping you make your writing dream come true. As your creative partner, I will always be asking myself how I can help you heal your relationship to writing, so writing can feel fun, motivating, and satisfying for you.
  • We'll keep the conversation going as you set new goals and check in each week. I'll be available to respond to your weekly check-ins, and I'll be available for the in-between times when you have questions, need encouragement, or want to celebrate your wins.

With this coaching program, you and I will work closely together to help you:

  • Meet your writing goals, so you can finally fulfill your dream.
  • Heal your creative wounds, so you can dissolve what's blocking you.
  • Find the motivation to write, so writing feels fun.
  • Make writing a thriving part of your life, so you can say, "I am a writer", with no shame or doubt.

You will experience:

Reflection

This program is a safe space to dive deep and reflect on your relationship to writing. It will help you see what's going on below the surface, and it will help you see what's truly blocking you.

Healing

My goal is to help you heal your relationship to writing. I know this is tender for you, and I also know that healing your creative wounds will help you move forward on your dream. We'll make this happen, together.

Motivation

The weekly online check-ins will help motivate you to get your writing done, and through our conversations I will help you fine tune your writing process, so you stay motivated for the long haul.

All the Details

You have questions. I have answers. If you have a question not answered here, I'd love for you to email me directly at [email protected] I check my email regularly and will do my best to respond within 24 hours.

The Technology

For this program I use a special online forum software called Slack. If you've never used Slack, or if new technologies intimidate you, I offer a video tutorial, plus you can email me any questions you have. I use Slack instead of other programs, because it offers a higher level of privacy for the online sphere.

You can access Slack on your desktop or as a mobile app, and you can set up email notifications to know when I've responded to you.

The Accountability

This program will work great for you if small amounts of external accountability tend to help you get things done, but you don't need a drill sergeant. I will never tell you to just sit down and write already. My motivation style is all about helping you reflect and heal in a safe space, so you can find freedom and pleasure in your writing process.

The Commitment

I offer 3-month, 6-month, or 12-month commitments. I do a minimum of 3 months, because it often takes that amount of time to see the true results of your transformation. For the extent of your program, you will do your weekly online check-ins, and you will do your self-defined weekly writing goals.

As your coach, I will respond to your check ins with coaching tools and opportunities for further reflection. I'll also be available for the in-between times when you have questions, need encouragement, and are ready to celebrate your wins. I offer thoughtful responses and respond within 24 - 48 hours to your messages. Consider me your partner in making your writing dreams come true.

The Payment Process

This program is available for monthly payments of $195 / month. Your payments will start after you fill out your application and are officially accepted into the program.

If you ever need to cancel your payments and leave the program, you can email me 2 weeks prior to when you need the payment cancelled.

The Application Process

If you're interested in doing online writing coaching, I would be absolutely thrilled to receive your application, which you can fill out here.

Because this is an intensive program, where you and I will be working closely together over a period of time, I want to make sure this program is the right fit for you. 

With the application I'm looking to make sure your writing goals match my coaching style. Be as honest and open as you can. If your goals aren't a perfect fit for this program, I'll do my best to refer you to a program that I think might work well for you.

I respond to applications within 72 hours, and I'm so looking forward to reading yours!! 

Bonus!

When you sign up for online writing coaching you will also get immediate access to my online course: Write In Peace, a self-guided 2 hour writing retreat you can do anywhere, anytime. You can use this course to help you jump start your writing dreams!

What I Don't Do

Every writing program is a little different. If you are comparing this program to others, here's a little more info to help you make your decision.

Here is what I don't do:

  • I don't edit your writing. I work with writers who are focusing on finding the motivation to get started with writing. This is a vulnerable part of the process, where editing can sometimes be more disruptive than helpful.
  • I don't offer advice on how to get literary agents, how to get published, or how to sell your writing. I focus specifically on the phase when you want to create your work. If you want to write something for publication, this program will help you meet your writing goals, and I can recommend other programs to help you walk through the publication process when you're ready for that phase.
  • I don't do coaching in person, over the phone, or on video. I use my online forum only. This offers scheduling freedom for both you and me, which is great for the creative life!
  • I don't use drill sergeant techniques to try to force you to write. I know this is tender for you. I will never make you feel bad because you didn't meet your weekly writing goal, but I will help you dig deep to discover what's going on beneath the surface, so you can clear what's blocking you.

Consider this program a safe and tender space to help you reflect on your writing life, heal your creative wounds, and find the motivation to make your writing dreams come true.

 

I can't wait to help you live a better, braver, more free version of your life, in which you create what you really want to create and say what you really want to say. Let's make your writing dreams happen.
