Why do you assign homework between sessions?
If you want to build muscle, you need to lift weights more than once. The skill of writing is only cultivated by practice. It’s not enough to focus on your art for just 90 minutes a week. I will hold you accountable to your daily writing practice, and if you stick with me here, you’ll achieve every goal you set out to accomplish.
Why is a writing practice good for my mental health?
I think Maya Angelou answered this question beautifully. She said, “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.” Your story is always waiting inside of you, trapped and waiting for its turn to speak. Your story needs to be told because stories are one of the fundamental ways humans navigate the world, relationships, hardship, success, and spirituality. Stories help us to connect deeply with ourselves, our dreams, and the people around us.
Your story is also a fundamental part of your identity. Squashing, hiding or silencing any part of your identity for any length of time, will—I believe—slowly kill you. Or at the very least, leave you depressed, anxious, codependent, addicted, and broke. Among other miseries. One of my favorite authors from my teenage years, Francesca Lia Block wrote, “I’ve written to transform pain, to save my mind from it’s incessant loopings, to save my life.” (The Thorn Necklace) Me too, Francesca. Me too.

What if my life story isn’t that exciting?
Trust me, it’s exciting. And interesting. And informative. And your readers will take away so much meaning from it. All you need to do is dig deep, write it down, and get it out into the world.
What if I don’t know anything about writing?
Then this program is perfect for you. This is WAY better than any English or Composition 101 class you’d take in college, and a lot more fun, flexible, and creative.
Do I need to prepare anything before my Discovery Call?
Nope! Just show up at your chosen time, and I’ll take care of the rest.
