Maya Angelou wrote, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

Ernest Hemingway had this to say about writing: “There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”

Both are true.

It isn’t always easy, writing. Sometimes it is a lonely thing, sitting at your desk, with your journal open, the blank page staring at you, screaming, “FILL ME WITH SOMETHING …” you fill in the adjective. (Sometimes? Right, let’s be real… writing IS a lonely business!)

Let me be your guide through this journey that is WRITING!

Wouldn’t it be great to let your story inform you, let the words flow from you. Simmer and bubble and boil with delicious creative inspiration. Let me guide you into that deliciousness that is trusting the process. Because that’s what writing is, a process. (It doesn’t happen all the time and for those times you’re dry as a bone, I can help you then as well!!)

I can help with all the other stuff too:

  • Copyediting and proofreading
  • Developmental and substantive editing
  • Critiques, writing instruction and mentorship
  • Finding your unique and personal writing style
  • Accountability and support
  • Goal setting and structure

“To me, the greatest pleasure of writing is not what it’s about, but the inner music that words make.”  
~~ Truman Capote

Let’s talk about your writing and how I might be able to guide you to where you’d like it to take you.
