Coaching New Writers
In recent months, I have been coaching a number of writers who are producing their first books. It's rewarding work, especially when we begin to see improvements in structure, pacing, dialogue, and narrative flow.
Usually, I recommend that my clients begin by listening to my short podcasts about the writing process. For complete beginners, Episode 1 deals with the challenges you will encounter as a writer, and suggests useful techniques to support the necessary commitment and perseverance.
For those who have been writing for some time, I recommend Podcast 2 which deals with Plot, Characterisation, and Dialogue, followed by Atmosphere & Pacing (#3) and Voice & Editing (#4).
