Are Coaching Sessions Right for You?
Coaching Sessions are a great way to get advice on
- writing craft
- fixing individual plot holes
- fostering good writing habits
- organization and accountability
- genre conventions
- advertising plans
- marketing tools
- short critiques
- and general writing issues.
It’s essentially a catch-all for getting information and feedback from a professional. If you’re looking for an accountability partner to keep you writing, that’s coaching. If you’re finished with your book, and you’re trying to determine who your readers are or what genres it should sit under, that’s coaching. If you’ve put your main character in a jam you can’t get him out of and need an outside perspective to fix the plot problem, that’s coaching.
If you’re looking for guidance from a professional, go ahead and schedule a coaching session now. Each session lasts an hour and can be held over text message or phone call. If you’re looking for advice on existing material, it will need to be submitted at least a week in advance by email.
