are you feeling...
'Stuck' in your projects?
Overwhelmed by marketing?
A lack of accountability?
A writing coach works with you to overcome these challenges,
and get you back to making
reliable, confident progress
towards your writing goals.
Here's what I bring to your writing desk.
I think we could all benefit from a writing coach—a person to help develop projects, break down creative challenges, and most importantly hold us accountable to a deadline.
As a coach, my goal is to help unlock your full potential as a writer. Having trouble writing each week? Not sure what to do with the middle of your book? Unsure how to begin gathering an audience? I'll help you break down the challenge into bite-size solutions, and talk you through making your goal into a reality one step at a time.
1. How to get started:
To get started, you can fill out the request form below with a brief description of your current challenge. If it seems like I'd be a good fit for your needs, we'll start with a free introductory call to size up your next steps.
2. During Coaching:
Over a series of video or audio calls, we'll work to break down your challenges into actionable steps. We want to get you feeling confident, determined, and satisfied with your writing, and most importantly seeing real progress towards your goals.
Over the course of our time together, we want to see you develop a steady writing routine, overcome creative blocks faster, and achieve your project milestones. Often writers will work with a writing coach just until a specific project is finished! If that becomes the case, then job well done.
"Interacting with William felt like talking to a friend. And that is what most aspiring writers want — a friend who will listen to their mental blocks and call them out on their run-on sentences. I immediately felt at ease with William, he has a warm welcoming personality and takes a genuine interest in you, as a person and writer.
William has a good listening ear, and will assess where your writing and intent springs from. With a writing sample, he places where you're at in your writing journey, and suggests what can be done to move to the next step. It's very easy to talk William about your insecurities; a session with him is a safe space to discuss your drawbacks, challenges and fears as a writer.
He certainly boosted me to write more confidently. With him, I can see a lot of closeted writers pick up the drive to finish that oft-abandoned idea or manuscript!"

Frequently Asked Questions
Does a writing coach guarantee I'll get published?
While I can provide helpful feedback on pacing, story themes and structure to bring out the best in your work, publication is never guaranteed for even the best of authors.
Will you edit my book?
A writing coach helps you to build healthy writing habits, stay motivated, and complete your project. Once it's complete, then it may be time to find an editor, which is a separate role.
Is my work protected?
As part of our contract, your work will not be reproduced or shared with anyone beyond the coaching process. You retain 100% ownership of your writing at all times.
What if I want to cancel?
You can cancel your monthly plan at any time, no questions asked. You will still have access to your remaining sessions for that month, and you will not be billed again.
