Are you struggling to get your daily writing habits and self care dialed-in?
"I have too many ideas!"
Are you frustrated with feeling unclear on how to organize and develop your thoughts?
"Who am I to write this book, anyway?"
Are you holding back out of fear of being judged by others?
I Wanted to Feel Elated but Instead I Was Exhausted, Frustrated, and Heart Broken
June Bennett, Holistic Author Coach
Writing my first book was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done.
There was so much more to the process than just filling a screen with words. My heart and soul went into it, and almost all of my time and energy. And there were so many things I had to figure out on my own as I went through the process. Everything from editing, to design, to publishing, and beyond. It was exhausting!
But the hardest thing I had to overcome was my debilitating perfectionism that kept me writing in circles for months. Trying to get everything exactly right before I could move on to the next chapter wasn’t just inefficient… It was excruciatingly painful!
When I -finally- finished the first draft of my manuscript I was physically, mentally, and emotionally drained. My health and wellness had slipped into an abyss. My marriage suffered. I suffered.
Writing had always been my passion but as I crossed the finish line, I despised it.
Yet, it was this journey that gave me the lived experience of what it really takes to get a book written, and, it is what inspired me to become the Holistic Author Coach that I am today.
So, I don’t just understand what you’re going through –I’ve gone through it too!
It also just so happens that I come with a very developed skill set. With me, you’re actually getting two coaches in one.
As a certified Author Coach and Developmental Editor, I offer industry-backed best practices, guidance on the nuts and bolts of self-publishing, and a small, but mighty -and fully vetted- team of graphic designers and proofreaders, who will do the heavy lifting of that part of the book-creation process for you, if you would like them to. (And why wouldn’t you want them to?!)
But the fun doesn’t stop there!
As a certified Wellness Coach who specializes in nervous system regulation, I’ll be there to guide you through whatever creative blocks try to stop you from getting words on to the page, and, I’ll help you develop and maintain restorative practices within your writing schedule, so that your body, mind, and spirit stay well from the beginning to the end.
“You mean I can get my book written and self-published without totally melting down and burning out?!”
Yes! Together, it is possible.
Let's get you dialed in with a More Aligned Manuscript
Within the genres of non-fiction Personal Growth and Memoir writers, I support:
1.) Amateur writers in penning their first publication; whether it’s an article, blog, or book, and
2.) Published Authors who are struggling (for whatever reason) to write their next piece.
By implementing various tools and tactics, I assist both kinds of writers in overcoming procrastination by helping them order and organize their content so that writing doesn’t feel so overwhelming… and so that the manuscript actually gets written!
I also support writers in breaking through creative blocks that show up in various shades, including perfectionism, judgment, and self-doubt, so that they can express themselves clearly to get their authentic story (and message) out into the world.
