Fall Planning, A Special Offer and Off I Go

I’ve been working hard getting clients set for my absence while I’m in France, and I’ve found myself with a bit of time this week. And so I’ve been planning. If there’s one thing I love to do in this life, it is to plan.  Give me a calendar or a planner or a workbook or a template and I’m a happy camper.

When I get home, I’ll have three months left to make my mark on this year. Three short months! And I’ve got tons I want to write, novels, books, blog posts and newsletters.  So in order to accomplish it all, I’m going to need to be organized.  Hence the planning. (Never mind that sometimes I get so enraptured with my planning that I never get to the actual action-taking.)

But here’s the deal.  In all that planning, I know the unexpected will happen. Like people wanting to hire me.  And so I had an idea. (Those are my husband’s most dreaded words in all the world, by the way. Because when I utter them it usually means he’ll be moving furniture or painting walls or digging up a garden bed to create a sculpture garden.) What if I could get an idea who might want to work with me now, to aid me in my planning.

Just think, in the final three months of this year, you could:

–Write the first draft of a novel (Nanowrimo is coming right up)

–Start a blog

–Write and submit article and essay ideas

–Complete a couple of short stories or a novella

–Write a book proposal

The sky’s the limit! Wouldn’t it be great to end this year on a high note, knowing you’ve accomplished your biggest goals? (Because if you are like me, writing is always the biggest goal.)

So, in order to entice you to sign up  and pay, I’m offering a special deal. I’ll add in one session to my one-month package, which brings the total to five sessions, and I’ll add in two session to my three-month, paid-in-advance sessions, bringing the total to 14 freaking sessions! Geez, people, this is  smoking hot deal.

And yes, you are correct, there is a catch.  Because I don’t want to worry about administrative things while I’m in France, to take advantage of this offer, you need to sign up by the end of Labor Day weekend.  That’s midnight, Pacific time on September 5th.  And here’s the other catch: I’m not going to have time to chat with you beforehand. We can communicate via email, but no phone calls. Oh, and one more catch, which is that our coaching will begin in October.

But you can use the sessions any time you want, over as long as you want. And we can work on whatever you want. (For the record, each session is one phone call and me reading up to 20 pages of your work).

Here are the pay buttons. I look forward to working with you!

Three months coaching + two bonus sessions for $1200

One month coaching + one bonus session for $450

Coaching Packages

You have a passionate idea. Light_bulb_lamp_266884_l

And a plan to turn that passionate idea into a published piece.  Maybe a book?  An article?  How about a blog?

Your passionate idea burns like an unquenchable fire within. You want to write so badly you can taste it.  You want to share your thoughts with the world.  Except, you still:

  • Don’t have time
  • Don’t have the will to make the time
  • Are fearful about what happens on the page when you do make time
  • Need clarity on how to put the idea together
  • Finally make time but can’t put words on the page

Or any number of variations on the themes of procrastination, and fear.  You feel confusion, puzzlement, longing and desire.  And when these feelings overwhelm you, you do what you’ve done every other time: give up.  And the words stay locked inside.

Isn’t it time to try something different?

Maybe what you need is a writing coach.  Maybe what you need is me.

My coaching takes a two-pronged approach, focusing on teaching you the elements of good writing and, equally important techniques to foster a constant flow of creativity.  Let me tell you, the latter is nearly as important as the former, because if you can’t manage to get your butt planted in front of the computer, all the gorgeous word styling in the world is not going to get you anywhere. 

But with me to poke, prod, support, cheer, teach, mentor, rejoice, and otherwise assist you with your writing you’ve got a damn good shot making the words happen.  Together we can:

  • Get you started on a book or project
  • Get clarity on organization
  • Get a book outlined
  • Get a draft written
  • Get a manuscript revised
  • Get a stalled project jump-started
  • Get you going on a writing career
  • Get you writing and submitting articles or stories
  • Get a blog up and running
  • Get you going on a new income stream
  • Get you started on creating the business of your dreams
  • Get you going on a deeply satisfying writing practice
  • All of the above

If you’ve got a passionate idea for a book or blog but you are not currently working on it, or making the progress you would like, isn’t it time to move forward?
