Here’s the truth: I love writing and I don’t love writing. I struggle to get myself to write or I’m lying in bed composing in my head and I have to get up and put it down immediately.

Having a writing companion and a structured time really helped me. I can let myself down, but I can’t let them down. Bonus, if they don’t turn up I feel so virtuous I simply have to write to prove it. If they do turn up and are motivated, I don’t want to deflate their enthusiasm. So, either way, I write.

I will never make you feel virtuous by not turning up (I wouldn’t do that to you!), but you might feel virtuous by actually doing that writing you’ve been promising yourself and everyone around you for years that you’d do.

I imagine it’s like people that go to the gym. Surely none of them want to go, but they do and they feel better for it, they may even enjoy it while they’re there. You don’t have to change clothes, location or get sweaty to write (unless you want to).

I’m gonna go with that metaphor – let’s exercise our brains, our writing muscles, rather than our bodies.

(I would 1000% rather write than exercise)

Not to sound all sales pitchy but maybe one session will set you up, give you the tools to go it alone. Or maybe you’ll be so enchanted with me (or you know the writing structure) that you’ll want to do this again and again.

You may be thinking “you expect me to pay how much?” I hear you, I’ve got options. Check out my shop on Ko-Fi for guided sessions you can do anytime, as often as you like (for as little as $1 and you get to keep it).

Why “write with me”?
– Carve out time to work on a project

– Create some headspace

– Create a writing habit

– Dedicate time to fleshing out that idea

– Accountability, ensuing you turn up and focus

– Structure, do the thing in the specified time

How does it work?
We meet online (a link will be sent when you book). The session starts with getting to know each other. Then we have a writing sprint focusing on removing the noise from your head. After that we feedback any learnings and make goals for our second sprint. Then we have a longer sprint focusing on your specific project. After the second sprint we do another feedback and closing. If you book for 90 minutes there will be an additional sprint or you can choose to convert the third sprint time into feedback on your writing (critique). You can write on paper or your computer, whatever suits you best. If you want a critique you will need to use your computer.
What is a sprint?
I’m not going to make you run, don’t worry. (See above re hating exercise) A writing sprint is a dedicated time to write. It doesn’t mean you have to write fast, just that the clock is running. If you really want to make it a competition we can see who writes more in 10-15 minutes. (Seriously, the first one is that short) You can focus for ten minutes, right?
What is a critique?
This is just a fancy word that means I’ll read what you’ve written, comment and make suggestions. Either write when we’re together or send me something before hand (up to 1500 words). It’s up to you whether you take any of my feedback onboard (it’s not like I can make you change anything!).
Will you read what I write?
Short answer: no. Slightly longer answer: if you want me to critique your writing I’m gonna need to see it.
