The key to shifting is often accountability.
A story can be told from many different points of view, and they each add a unique experience for the reader as well as the novelist. Think about the Sixth Sense: What if the story had not been told from the point of view of the psychologist who didn't know he was dead? What if it had been from the child's POV, or the mother's? Those would still have made a wonderful tale, but the story took us on one heck of a ride when we discovered the hidden truth.
And you've probably heard a million times that a story needs a beginning, middle and end? But what exactly does that mean? How can you tell if you have a full story or just an exciting event? What if you want to turn a single moment into a novel? It's doable, with a deep dive into knowing what you really want to say.
With a Master of Science in Applied Psychology and my work as a certified hypnotist, removing blocks is built into our first sessions. Then we focus on measurable results to increase your sense of purpose and bring your idea to life.
While almost all coaches work solely with you during your session, this program provides you with hours of unseen support as I analyze your story with the training only a master of storytelling - Dave Farland - could share. As a certified Farland Fiction Writer's Coach, and my years of helping people explore storytelling, you receive the benefits of a coach, a writing instructor, and an editor right from day one.
Why so often? I need to know that you are ready to focus on this story, and are prepared to give it high priority. With a weekly focus, it switches from being a dream into becoming just who you are - a writer.
Any coaching program you are considering should address the mindsets you currently hold and discuss the ones you want to claim. With the science of motivation as our guide, we'll shift your mental habits into the ones that bring results and move you toward a desired life.
This is what makes working with a writing coach more effective than a life coach. I've edited stories for years, and you'll receive the benefit of working with a developmental editor, copy editor and a brainstorming partner, all in one.
