COACHING FOR WRITERS
I BELIEVE in the extraordinary power and beauty of a person’s self-expression. Who you are is life’s gift to you. Who you are is your gift to the world. That gift is opened and shared through self-expression. I am particularly committed to supporting people in being freely and fully self-expressed writers.
Maya Angelou wrote, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” Stephen King added, “Sometimes stories cry out to be told in such loud voices that you write them just to shut them up.” People have stories inside of them that are meant to be written. Sometimes that story is deeply personal – like stories of heartache, loss, transformation, and liberation. Sometimes the story shows up in the form of a profound understanding or expertise in areas such as relationships, spirituality, healing, creativity and authentic living. Other times it’s a story we have a fire inside to tell, even if it’s not our story specifically except for the mark it made on us. Moreover, there are times when a story is born out of one’s imagination, where people and plots come alive and dance together in mysterious, enchanting, gripping ways that awaken, inspire, unlock, embolden us and make us look deeper.
My experience in supporting writers is creating a space, uniquely tailored to the needs of each writer, where they identify, access, and extend their authentic and distinct self through the written word to fulfill on their intention for writing; this includes partnering together in doing personal work in the following areas:
•Creating a statement of intention for the writing project, and the essential parameters of fulfilling the project.
•Exploring what it means for the writer to write in honesty with themselves, expressing their authentic personality, thoughts, feelings, and experiences, as well as determining what it means to complete the project with integrity.
•Establishing a book structure that effectively supports the purpose of the writing project.
•Determining and incorporating self-care practices that nurture the inner life and creativity of the writer.
•Establishing a writing rhythm and schedule that supports the process of writing content; submitting content for input and feedback; and having interaction and discussion about it.
