Claim Your Creative Freedom Coaching

You have stories inside you—lots of them.  Stories that are bursting to get out so that you can share them with the world–and leave your legacy.  But, sadly, so far your stories have stayed locked inside. Meanwhile, the days, weeks and months tick by and suddenly it’s a year later—or two, or three—and you’ve still not started writing.

So tell me, honestly–how’s your writing coming? Are you writing with wild abandon, achieving your word count every day?  Are you happily setting aside the unwashed dishes and the un-mopped floor, and blocking out distractions (CNN or Instagram anyone?) to claim your writing time? Are you regularly querying agents about your novel, or taking steps to self-publish?

Maybe answering those questions makes your stomach hurt and your head pound. Because you want to be a writer. So bad. You consider yourself a writer. Except for the fact that you aren’t writing.  Or you’re spinning in circles, working and reworking the same first chapter to your novel. Or you’ve got a manuscript finished but you don’t have the vaguest clue what to do with it next.

Or you’re writing.  Regularly, at least most of the time. But you have questions, doubts and fears. Sometimes those keep you from writing. What you need most is to consistently get the words onto the page—because that’s how we writers learn.  And that’s how books get written. But you stop yourself.

NOW more than ever, the world needs your voice.  We are living through crazy, upsetting times and one of the best antidotes to the madness is to exercise your creativity. Go write!  But if you’re having a hard time shutting out the noise and getting words on the page, maybe it is time for some one-on-one coaching.  Wouldn’t it be lovely to feel creatively free whenever you sat down to write? Claim your creative freedom and sign on today!

Together, you and I can go from your passionate ideas to published book.  I can help you get writing and keep writing, and when the time comes, I can show you the ropes of the publishing world—and hold your hand while you climb them.  I love helping writers achieve their goals, and I’m an enthusiastic and supportive cheerleader—who will also kick your butt when necessary.

Please contact me to set up a time to talk about your needs!

 

Testimonials

Taking Charlotte’s three-day novel writing workshop was life-changing! Her obvious love of teaching and the warmth and support she exudes ignites the spirit and the pen. With her confidence-building coaching I have started a freelance writing business, blog and website and my novel is underway. While working a full-time job, I’ve come so far in just seven months, and I could not have done it without Charlotte.

Zan Marie Cover shot2I can’t say enough about Charlotte Dixon’s coaching abilities and style. My inner editor, that pesky little voice, was interfering with my ability to draft anything. I thought it was normal–until I talked to Charlotte. During a fifteen-minute session, she talked me through several exercises. One of them hit the jackpot! Among the wonderful suggestions was this one—have a discussion with your inner editor. Now not only am I able to draft freely, I also got a great short story that is currently submitted to a magazine for publication. Charlotte is warm, personable, and real. Her ideas work.

Holly-15I am a first-time book author that was shy and overwhelmed by my aspirations. But, I was delighted to find that Charlotte treated my ideas with as much love and respect as if they were her own. Because of her openness to possibility and her consistently, warm, and practical guidance, I just attended the local writers conference and pitched my book proposal with confidence to eight literary agents. She is truly a Shaman of Creativity.

GwenI’ve never thought of myself as a writer. I’m a coach. However, after doing a complementary session with my friend and colleague Charlotte I learned so much that will help me with my business anyway! There’s a lot more internal emotional pieces to writing than I ever realized. She immediately asked me WHY I never thought of myself as a writer and child hood emotional memories instantly surfaced. She offered several powerful exercises such as a strategic way to have a dialog with your inner critic, how to make a deal with that inner critic and for all of you perfectionists out there that aren’t writing because you think it needs to be perfect first, Charlotte can help you to really believe that with writing, “there’s always another chance.” She also helped me to format a letter to my clients by helping me with the basic structure. How to start, how can I present the story so the reader can understand it, what’s in it for them (the reader) and how to provide them with what they want and need, and how to end with a strong close. I can’t believe I learned ALL THAT in a simple complimentary session! If she can help this much for someone who isn’t a writer, just imagine how much she can help those of you who are!!
