Let me coach you!

Hello, friend! The first and forever purpose of this blog is to inspire other writers to persist in spite of obstacles, especially internal and self-imposed obstacles. Below are some resources I’ve created to help you get writing again. These links will take you to documents made in Docs (Google). If you use Gmail, you can go to file/make a copy to have your own form to fill out. Otherwise, you can select the text and copy/paste it into the word processor of your choice.
