Be the writer you've always wanted to be

Writers work best with an external deadline. We don’t realize it, but our definition of a “successful writer” means someone has attained external deadlines: Journalists have an editor, authors have publication date, comedy writers have a showtime, publicists have a boss.

You know you have something to say, but you have a hard time getting yourself to write on a regular schedule. This course is for you. Think of it as buying the external deadline so you can get started.

SELF-DISCIPLINE TO WRITE REGULARLY AND THE SELF-CONFIDENCE THAT FOLLOWS

Knowing you are writing well is one of the best ways to get yourself to write. And we'll reach to that point by working together.

When I started writing, it was sporadic. I didn't like that I didn't know if what I was writing was good or bad. I thought it might be good. But I didn't trust myself. I wanted outside affirmation.

I turned a corner when I realized that receiving consistent feedback from a seasoned writer made my own writing better and better each week. And the experience made me want to write regularly so I could get feedback: no writing meant no feedback for that week.

CAREFUL, SEASONED FEEDBACK THAT'S NOT ONLY USEFUL BUT TRANSFORMS LIVES

I ended up teaching writing at Harvard, Brown, University of Paris, and Boston University, and I loved it. But then I founded a startup, and then another, and my life as a writing teacher fell to the side.

I love helping writers in the same way my favorite editor worked with me. As an editor, I'll give you clear feedback on everything you write. And I'll explain to you what makes your writing great and what is happening when the writing doesn't work. Getting understandable, logical feedback was essential to making me a successful writer.

INSIGHT INTO THE FORMAT THAT SHOWCASES YOUR PARTICULAR TALENT

Part of the editing process is discovering the format that's most true to you: fiction, non-fiction, long-form journalism, creative non-fiction, flash fiction, essay, memoir, op-ed. You might be surprised to discover that you're naturally talented to a format you have't tried.

Finding your best format will lead to you finding your hidden ability to write regularly about what matters to you.

ONE-ON-ONE COACHING TO CREATE YOUR OWN VERSION OF A WRITER'S LIFE

We'll have an ongoing relationship the whole year via email or phone - whatever works best for you. I'll suggests topics, tactics, routines, and other solutions I've developed to overcome challenges in my own writing life.

A MEASURABLE, ACHIEVABLE GOAL THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL ACCOMPLISHED

Once you're writing on a regular basis, I'll make sure your writing adds up to something. I'm very goal oriented, and I didn't feel like a real writer until I had a goal for my writing. This might be true for you, too.

The people I've been working with for the past four years have had big success:

  • One person has seen her blog traffic increase 20% every month for two years.
  • Two people got book deals for non-fiction books.
  • One person changed from writing a blog to writing a memoir and that switch enabled her to write almost every day for a year.
  • One person - who had never written anything before I worked with her - published a book of short essays that I keep by my nightstand. It reminds me what a joy it is to work with writers.
