What if you could get coaching and companionship that surfaces your strongest work?
What’s wrong with what’s happening now
Lots of advice on structure, schedules launches, audiences, publishing whatever. But no one teaches you how to live as a writer, do the day-in, day-out, writing, how to be with you and the blank page and screen and get from the idea in your head. Know where it ends? One more person perkily screeches “write 400 words every day!!!” I will perkily duct tape their tongues.
Other big advice? TIE YOURSELF TO A CHAIR AND THRASH THE WORDS OUT OF YOUR FLESH AND THEN GET SOMEONE TO TELL YOU ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE WRONG WITH IT. No good unless you bleed.
All of these ideas about what it takes to complete a project has huge effect on whether you’ll finish it, the quality of it, if you’ll want to do anything with it when it’s done.
