WHAT IS BOOK COACHING?
This service is for writers who don’t have a finished manuscript yet and who need ongoing help with any of these things:
Turning an idea into an outline
Creating an overall structure for your book
Fleshing out characters
Overcoming writer’s block or getting unstuck
Figuring out why something “just isn’t working” (even if you don’t know exactly what that something is)
Forming a convincing argument
Plotting out a storyline
Fixing slow or boring sections
Planning your next book
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Of course, each writer and each manuscript is different. But in general, here’s how it works:
You and I have regular one-hour calls (up to four times per month) to discuss whatever is on your mind about your manuscript. Here are some possible topics:
Narrowing down your target audience and tailoring your writing to them
Structuring your plot (for fiction) or argument (for nonfiction)
Working out character arcs and development
Developing the fictional world of your story and fleshing out details such as government, social structure, geography, climate, supernatural elements (e.g., magic), and so on.
You can email me anytime with smaller questions. If a question is too big to answer in an email, we’ll schedule a call instead.
