Every person who has achieved success has done so by enlisting the help of others.
Some of us studied writing at university and were guided by knowledgeable, professional instructors. Others are self-taught, and they too relied on help from the pros. They studied works by successful authors and absorbed books and other resources on the craft of writing.
We all need a little help crossing the finish line. Hiring a writing coach may be a smart option.
What a Writing Coach Does
A writing coach should be able to relate to your struggles while offering solutions to help you overcome your challenges. A good writing coach will hold you accountable and firmly, but gently, encourage you to stick to your goals and make sure you complete your projects.
Finally, a writing coach is more than a productivity expert. A writing coach knows good writing and will work with you to make sure your writing is the best it can be.
Do You Need a Writing Coach?
Before you hire a writing coach, ask yourself the following questions:
- Do I have writing goals that I am consistently NOT achieving? Do I regularly drop the ball on my writing projects?
- Do I need to work on improving my grammar, spelling, or punctuation, or could my sentence and paragraph structure be improved?
- Do I need to develop a stronger voice, more realistic characters, or better plots?
- Could I benefit by enlisting the help of a writing coach who will provide thoughtful, honest, and constructive feedback?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a writing coach just might knock the wind back into your sails.
I can help you.
