Creativity coach? Writing coach?
What’s the difference?
All coaches offer slightly different services, depending on their expertise, skill set and passions.
Traditionally though, a writing coach will help you with the many and varied aspects of the writing process. From finding time to write, to creating the first draft, to editing and publication support. Some writing coaches, or book coaches, will help with proposals, agents and promotion after the book is written.
A creativity coach is more focused on the actual creative process.
For writers, this means support with creating the conditions for writing, overcoming creative blocks and finding the clarity and confidence that enable you to get writing and enjoy the process.
This is my speciality. When I work with writers, my focus is the writer, not the material.
I love to help writers discover the optimum conditions for their happiest writing life, and how to make that a reality.
I love to help writers tap into their inner resources of inspiration, creativity, resilience, passion and confident expression.
I love to help writers reconnect with the joy of writing.
So in my work, creativity coaching for writers means supporting the writer through the many challenges of the creative process.
Together we work on issues such as;
• what to focus on
• where to begin
• how to keep going
• how to be more inspired and more often
• how to fit writing into a busy lifestyle• how to bypass creative blocks
• and how to find more meaning and fulfilment in the writing process
My speciality isn’t to give feedback, critiques or editing help with the writing that emerges from our work together – though I do have many years experiences of taking the next steps and where to find support for those stages.
My support service is designed purely to get writers writing, and enjoying the process.
