Hire me and I will give you the tools to become a consistent writer, offer deadlines, text prompts and encouragements, and help you on your writing journey.
Story Coach /ˈstôrē kōCH/ [noun]: “someone who helps a writer create a powerful story that resonates with readers because its structure will be in the form that resonates with how the human brain connects to stories.”
Story coaching is NOT about making sure your grammar is correct—story coaching is about making sure your characters have true, human depth; your world building is engaging and consistent; your scenes have structure and are necessary for the furthering of conflict; and all the parts in between.
My clients and I work on big picture themes—concepts for each writer to consider: their storytelling, voice, clarity, plot, tension, etc.
But we also work on the micro issues that come up in the specifics of their own story: how to get a character from A to B. How to find a meaningful WHY for your villain. How to get characters out of sticky situations because you need them to end up in X.
To be concise: It’s my job to find holes and fill them.
To be wordy: I find discrepancies or inconsistencies in your story, help you find solutions, alternatives, or loopholes and make every aspect of your story engaging, powerful, and believable. You are able to chose one of THREE PLANS and then we meet on a monthly basis to discuss your work.
If you’re looking for the next step for you book, maybe a story coach is what you’ve been waiting for.
Have you ever wanted to start a book but didn't know where to start?
Whether through phone calls or meeting at a coffee shop, I would love to meet with you and help you get the story out of your head and onto paper (or a Word document).
This Storyboard service is broken up into three sections. In our first consultation 1) we get to know one another 2) we discuss your writing process and 3) you get the opportunity to word vomit the most basic ideas of your story.
After our meeting, I email you a Storyboard Booklet to help you flesh out the skeleton of your story. You have anywhere between 2-4 weeks to work through it.
We schedule our second meeting, and you send me your booklet 7 days before said meeting. During that time, we go over the booklet and discuss what does and doesn't work, what problems you faced, and what needs more fleshing out.
I then send you Storyboard Booklet Two and the same process is repeated.
In our third and final meeting, we will discuss your next steps, how to utilize the storyboards in your writing, how to make and maintain progress, and if story coaching is possibly a next step for you.
