Do you have a story you know you NEED to share but you aren’t sure exactly where to start?

Have people told you you’re a good writer but you’ve never had the guts to actually publish something? Do you dream of starting or growing a blog? Have you always wanted to practice getting better at writing but you can’t seem to find the time or space for it? 

 
That’s why I developed this coaching program. Because every day I meet people, just like you, who are looking for a little direction and help with their writing but they’re not sure who to ask. 

 
As for me, I know what it feels like to be lost as a writer. When I quit my job back in 2010 to launch my full-time writing career, I had NO FREAKING CLUE what I was getting myself into. I didn’t know how to format a Wordpress post. I had no idea what social platforms I should be using. I didn’t have a clear plan for growing the “business” of my writing. I didn’t know if I needed an agent, or how to get in touch with a publisher and, oh yeah, minor detail, I didn’t have the first clue about how to write the actual book.
 
All I knew was that I loved to write, I had a story I wanted to share, and I couldn’t seem to wait to share it.
 
Since then, I’ve learned a lot about the writing and publishing world. I’ve written more than 10 books, coached hundreds of writers, and developed two curriculums specifically for writers. I’ve worked with publishers, agents, authors—and writers like you (and like I was when I first stumbled into this) who have no clue where to start and are wondering if they even have what it takes. Can you relate? 
 
We worry about things like logistics and who will read what we’ve written and whether it’s worth the investment of time or money.
 
When the truth is we know these are just obstacles in the way of doing what we have known for a long time we’re supposed to do—get our story on paper.
 
No matter what that looks like for you, I can help. Here are some of the things I’ve helped my clients do: 
 
  • Start a blog
  • Write and edit blog posts (and begin to post regularly)
  • Gain the confidence they need to hit “publish”
  • Craft and refine a book idea
  • Put together a book proposal to pitch to an agent
  • Edit, shape, refine a piece of writing to get it ready for publishing
  • Learn to workshop writing pieces so they can become their own editors
  • Grow their confidence as a writer
  • Pitch a piece of writing to a publication, or a “guest post” 
  • Grow in their skills as a writer

 

What do I get for my money? 

Depending on the program you choose (below), there are different deliverables. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my years of writing and working with writers, it’s that the greatest gifts we receive of writing are often not related to writing at all. There’s a considerable amount of research that shows that as we clarity our thoughts and ideas and stories, we begin to see all kind of immeasurable benefits show up in our lives.

Writing has the capability to improve your physical health, your relationships, your career, and even your finances.

If you’ve been waiting and wondering about jumping into this writing thing—no more putting it off! No more excuses. See the coaching packages below and let me help you take the leap. I can’t wait to hear your story.

  • Ally was so good at uncovering the things I already am good at, the things I already have to say. The assignments were like scraping the extraneous layers out of the way –– wrangling the fear/insecurity/etc. so that we could get to the real stuff that is dying to get to the surface. My words have a tendency of freezing up, which causes me to think I don’t have anything to say. But that’s not true. I have a lot to say, it’s now just a matter of controlling my words and bringing them to the surface. Ally helped me to do that.

  • Ally skillfully, gently, and wisely leads you through determining your intention, identifying your audience, and honing your craft. Through her thoughtful coaching, my worries and doubts began to fade into the background as my focus, intention, and essays gained a clarity they have never known before. I wholeheartedly recommend spending some time with her. Your new writing life will thank you.
    Stephanie
  • As a creative person, I always thought I was either on or off—the inspiration would hit and I would be high with a rush of ideas and then it would go... and whether I created was largely dependent on these feelings or inspiration. [Ally] helped me to become comfortable with re-stoking my own fire, making writing daily a habit/discipline instead of something I just did when the feeling struck, and reassured me that not only is it okay to be in process, it's necessary I stay in process and have grace in that for myself.
