Navigate your Writing ‘Road Bump’ Package

Starting to write a novel or non-fiction book is exciting. You’ve got all these ideas and you set off on that road at high speed.

Before long you hit a bump in the road. You don’t know if your character, setting and plot are strong enough. Or you’ve got a load of notes about your topic but no idea how to get them in order or whether anyone will be interested.

You start thinking that you need help. But what help is there?

You know there are editors out there, but that’s only going to help if you’ve actually written something, yes? And it won’t help you with your questions about the whole project. It’s hard to get much written if you don’t know exactly what you want to write!

I understand the problem and I’ve got a solution.

My Navigate Your Writing ‘Road Bump’ Package helps you figure out the shape of the book you’re trying to write so that you can get over this sticky patch and move on with clarity and confidence.

If you’re writing a novel, we’ll talk about your character and their story, making it stronger and identifying where you should begin the story.

If you’re writing non-fiction, we’ll talk about who you’re writing it for, what it’s going to help them with and what you’re going to get out of it for yourself.

We don’t stop there.

Once we’ve talked and you’ve written your first chapter (up to 5k words), you can send it to me for feedback. I’ll let you know where you’re on the right track and where you could make changes and improvements in the structure and content.

Any book, fiction or non-fiction, has to appeal to the right sort of reader. This package is ideal if you’ve hit a snag in the planning or first draft stage of your writing.

How to Overcome Perfectionism as a Writer

Perfectionism is a common trait amongst writers. It is especially true of fiction writers, who often spend hours worrying over their exact word choices and word order. They might lose half an hour deliberating over a comma. Does this sound like you?
If you recognise yourself in this, then know this. Perfectionism is not serving you.

I’ve Got An Idea For A Story…

“I've got an idea... but I haven't got a clue where to start.” If I had a penny for every time I've heard those words! What is that fear of getting started all about? It can be different issues for different people, but the most common reasons I dig out of people are...

How to Write a Novel for Beginners

You want to write a novel. You’ve got some story ideas bouncing around your head, but you don’t know how to even begin. Every novel you read makes you want to write your own book too, yet it also scares you.
