How The Family History Story Coach Program Works
As your story coach, Lynn will meet with you via telephone, Skype or Google+ hangout to discuss your writing, your ultimate goals, and review your idea or outline.
Based on your writing goals, Lynn will help you identify a particular path to keep you motivated and on-track with your writing in private coaching sessions.
In this multi-session package, you receive 5, 60-minute phone or Skype or Google+ meetings, monthly, weekly or bi-weekly. You choose the frequency with which you want support.
During your sessions, Lynn will motivate and inspire you, and provide quality feedback to your story, book and writing goals.
Having a regular appointment with a writing coach is a great way to keep you accountable, while also giving you regular feedback to ensure your writing stays on track.
Story Coaching Does Not Include
The coaching program does not include a writing critique. If you wish to receive a writing critique, consider The Family History Story Critique Service.
Upon payment, you’ll receive a questionnaire to fill in prior to your first coaching session. This will allow Lynn, your story coach to get to the heart of your coaching session quickly. Upon submission of your questionnaire, you’ll receive a selection of dates and times for you to choose from for your first session. Most coaching sessions will be scheduled within a two-week window after submitting the questionnaire. This schedule may be adjusted based on our workload.
