WRITING GUIDE

Discover the hidden treasures of your heart

As your writing guide, I will assist you in tapping into your inner wisdom to reveal insights, create clarity and find peace. This writing work promotes deep healing and self-acceptance.

In our initial one-hour meeting, we will explore what you need to unearth and unburden. Based on what I learn, I will identify your unique writing pathway and create writing prompts to guide you on your way. Each month, I will email you two prompts per week. At the end of each month we will assess your progress and plan your next steps.

This program includes:

  • A one-hour consultation by phone or Zoom in which we explore what you would like to express, grieve, discover.
  • Writing prompts tailor-made for your healing journey emailed to you twice a week.
  • A 30-minute call at the end of each month to assess your progress and plan your next steps.

Catharine has helped me use writing to learn about myself. But more than that, she has invited me to be the writer I am.

I needed an experienced guide to move me through the exploration of my patterns and history. Catharine was the right person. Gentle, intuitive and inquiring, she listens well. I trust her to help me use writing to discover hidden treasures of the heart.

BOOK COACH

Get it done with guidance, structure and accountability.

As your book coach, I will be someone you can bounce ideas off, ask questions of, and expect guidance from on the path to completing your book. Writing can be lonely, and having a goal as big and daunting as a book can feel overwhelming. I provide guidance, accountability, and structure to help you move toward your goals with me at your side, cheering you on while expecting full participation of your best self.

What you get:

One one-hour phone or zoom call each week to plan, review progress, discuss current challenges, and provide feedback. At the end of each call, I will give you writing tasks to complete before the next call.

Discussion of your goals and timeline. Once we know that, we can establish a writing schedule that works for you.

Then we will talk about your ideas and transform them into an outline.

  • Once the schedule and outline, are in place, I will assign writing tasks for you each week to move you from outline to manuscript.
  • As you complete your writing tasks, you can submit your pages to me for feedback. I will provide line edits and global feedback on your work. As we work, you will internalize the tips I give you, providing an opportunity for you to continue to develop your skills as a writer.
  • If you run into blocks, I will be there to help you move through them. You can email me your questions, obstacles and triumphs.

I so appreciate the gentleness, clarity and multifaceted way that you describe what is needed next and how to go about it. There is so much helpful information in your feedback. All of it feels spot on.

I cannot thank you enough, Catharine, for all the specifics you’re pointing out, but larger than that, for the ways that you are: gentle, supportive, insightful and so aware of how delicate all this is.”

Catharine offered line edits, organizational flow suggestions and wise guidance about navigating the complex feelings and risks of self-disclosure. I was thrilled with the process, and feel so much more confident now about my work. Thank you Catharine!

Catharine worked with me to create a brochure for my small business. She helped me distill the essence of what we have to offer, make it coherent and look beautiful. And, she is fun to work with! I cannot recommend her enough.
