"The very nature of innovation is to act as if—to act as if you're on to something, as if it's going to work, as if you have a right to be here. Along the way, you can discover what doesn't work on your way to finding out what does." —Seth Godin
Why Coaching for Writers?
Sometimes all we need is solitude and the rich hours of pulling words from the depths and arranging them on the page.
Other times we need to meet a friend for coffee and talk about how the project stalled and how maybe the fuel pump needs to be replaced.
Coaching is a sustained conversation that allows you to reflect and think in new ways about your writing.
As a result, you're able to reframe processes and routines so you can be more consistent and productive. It's simple and very effective.
Sessions are conducted via Zoom or phone.
Depending on your needs and interests, we may share a Google folder for
accountability support, resources, and updates between sessions.
First exploratory session (up to one hour) is free. This is a great chance to ask questions and to get a sense if my coaching style is a good fit for you.
A little about me:
I'm the author of three books and have published poems, short stories, and essays in literary journals such as StoryQuarterly, Gettysburg Review, Mid-American Review, Colorado Review, Buenos Aires Review, Denver Quarterly, and many others. My newsletter Zen Sun Weekly features an original Zen teaching and ships to subscribers every Sunday. A former university creative writing instructor, I am also a coach with ICF (International Coaching Federation) training.
Forthcoming: a book on Zen and Information Technology with Renato Bellu & Andy Cheng, specifically addressing "how ERP can help companies streamline and make the business more efficient" as Andy puts it.
