Readerly Book Coaching and Writer Support

Plan of a Novel: Get Started Writing with a Firm Foundation $497

This 8-12 week program is designed to take authors through the steps to build a foundation for their novel before they begin writing. It can also work well if authors need help getting unstuck. Each week, participants will receive writing assignments and exercises and written feedback with email support to help them move forward with getting their idea from their head to the page. By the end of the program, each writer will have a complete cause:effect outline for their novel, a main character arc, a plot diagram, and will have written the first and last scenes. Participants will have the opportunity to schedule two 30 minute coaching calls, one at the midway point and one upon completion of the program to discuss next steps in their writing journey.  Get the road map for your book done with support from a coach, so you can start writing forward with confidence. The Plan of a Novel is a one to one coaching experience. We will build the schedule together during a beginning consultation.
