How a Writing Coach Can Help You
I will help you become a better writer.
Coaching entails seeing you through the writing process. I’ll help you identify and clear the hurdles between where you are and where you want to get. That might mean working through some writing exercises to develop a certain aspect of craft, having Skype calls to discuss your progress, looking at a scene to make sure you’re on the right track as you draft, and other ways to help you understand the process of writing a publishable book and helping you get to the end of that journey.
My goal is to help you reach your goals as a writer. I will always tell you why I think you should do something, but at the end of the day, it’s your book.

Ultimately, a developmental editor is a highly skilled, objective, extra set of eyes.
The best editor for you will be someone you can have a professional relationship with, who is honest, and has an understanding of both writing craft and English usage.
