Writing coaches are invaluable in motivating, guiding, and keeping you on track. They will also help with choosing a title, targeting your audience, and planning your book cover.
Tracy Hart (EditingWithHart.com) — Whether you are an aspiring author with nothing more than an idea and some notes — or you have a completed manuscript ready to be edited — Tracy Hart can help. She will assist you with writing style, word choice, character development, dialogue, plot pacing, as well ensure the uniqueness of your voice. If you’re ‘stuck’ and seem to be experiencing writer’s block (“frozen pen”), Tracy has a degree in counseling so she can also help you break through resistance by suggesting relaxation, focusing, and writing exercises.
NOTE: Tracy is my writing coach and I have found her to be invaluable in keeping me inspired. She constantly challenges and encourages me to write with my heart as well as my head. I highly recommend her services.
