Are you meeting your writing goals?
I don't know about you, but I know I didn't meet every writing goal I set last year. It was a good year, in many ways, but there is always more work to do. There are stories to be written, characters eager to come to life, places where my mind wanders in search of the next word, the next turn of phrase, the next scene or chapter.
It is a pleasure to work with other writers to encourage, develop, and deepen their writing. Every year I learn something new about the world, and about myself, from my writing students and clients.
If I can be of help to you, as you seek to meet your writing goals, please contact me. Look around this website. There are plenty of opportunities for us to connect. I look forward to hearing from you.
