Sometimes, the best option is to go 100% individualized with the instruction. Hire me as a writing coach, and I'll look at your work and then we'll have a dialogue about what you need to do to whip your process and craft into shape.
The first step to any coaching relationship is to have a conversation about your goals and obstacles with your writing. So we'll begin with some pre-coaching communication via email, phone, or video chat.
Depending on what you're after with your writing, you'll send me an outline, scene, list, or some pages of your work-in-progress for me to read, assess, and edit prior to our coaching session.
Finally, we'll get together via phone call or video chat to discuss your process and craft and set some goals for making your work live up to its potential.
You've heard of that 10,000-hour thing, right? It's the popular advice that you need 10,000 hours of practice in order to master a particular skill. It turns out that it's not enough just to tally the hours, though. As Maria Popova reports, "The secret to continued improvement isn’t the amount of time invested but the quality of that time . . . . The factor Ericsson and other psychologists have identified as the main predictor of success is deliberate practice—persistent training to which you give your full concentration rather than just your time, often guided by a skilled expert, coach, or mentor."
