Write your articles, stories, essays and blogs this year – with joy and ease
You feel a burning desire to write. Stories, poems, articles, essays….you may not even be sure what form it will take, but you must get your ideas onto the page.
But for some reason, instead of being the writer you know you are, all you can claim to be is stuck. Is this you:
- Your ideas are always with you, but everything else in your life comes first.
- You take a class to get going, but after the class ends, your writing peters out too.
- You want to make writing a priority but fears and insecurities hold you back.
This has been okay because the rest of your life is busy and you’re generally happy. But now, the tension between you and your creativity has become unbearable.
It’s time to become the writer you know you are.
Get the right kind of help for your writing life
For fourteen years, I’ve coached my clients past the common obstacles in the creative life. They bravely show up and do the work to honor their writing impulse. And it pays off, big time. Here are some of the things my clients experience as a result of our work together:
- a sense of joy and lightness replaces dread and fear about writing
- clarity that removes the confusion they feel about where to focus
- confidence moves in, pushing insecurity out the door along with the inner critic.
These are the feelings that we deserve to experience! My life’s work is to help creative people feel good about their talents. My clients come from all over the world. And I’m proud to share that when writing coaches need help with their own projects, they come to me.
During our work together, my coaching clients see results they love. They:
- get on a regular writing schedule that works for them
- gather their prolific ideas into order and work steadily through them
- align with a publishing schedule that allows them to get their blog or newsletter out consistently.
- publish their work and receive the reward of reader feedback that spurs them on.
If you’re ready to enjoy these kind of results, let’s work together.
I accept a small number of clients every year, and sometimes have a waiting list. If you’re ready to show up for your writing in a new, joyful way, let’s get started.
How we’ll work together
My most successful clients work with me for six to twelve months. We meet twice per month via phone or Skype.
Between calls, you’ll send me a weekly progress report to stay on track and have the kind of accountability a veteran writer’s coach offers.
Unique bonuses that make a difference
- I record our calls for you to listen to later.
- I send you notes I take from our sessions – complete with color and illustrations!
I offer what few other coaches do – ways to capture the juice of our sessions that exponentially increase the value. Many of my clients listen to our call recordings later and:
- catch things they missed during the calls.
- hear their own patterns
- identify things they’d like to change
- learn to ask their own powerful questions between calls.
My session notes give my clients extra insight and joy. They can focus on the learning in the call instead of taking notes on everything. The illustrated notes I take during our sessions helps the coaching insights really stick.
Most of my clients keep my notes in their coaching notebooks. Some print up the notes and hang them in their office or creative space as reminders of their focus. This also helps them feel their champion in the room cheering them on daily.
Six months: $3,000, payable at the beginning or six payments of $525 each.
Twelve months: $5,600 or twelve payments of $500 each.
This may seem like a serious investment, and it is. But we know the costs of not writing:
- irritability that infects your relationships
- jealously of other writers
- seeing your ideas written under someone else’s name
- internal sense of something ‘off’ or missing.
What my coaching is not:
- critique of your writing
- teaching the craft of writing
- writing or editing for you
This kind of support is unique in the field of writing. Classes, workshops, books and retreats offer a totally different kind of support. My coaching gives you an ally, an advocate and unconditional support and encouragement to get on track, stay on track and feel satisfied with your efforts and your progress.

Read what some of my clients have experienced as a result of our work together
My creative energy had dipped. I had invested so much into my business and supporting other writers that I had lost enthusiasm for my own writing project. From my work with Cynthia, I began making real creative connections again, rediscovering my love of books, of gardens, of singing, of art. She supported me as I moved from one literary agent to another and helped me to refocus my energies back to my own novel.
I cannot recommend Cynthia highly enough. I did so appreciate our coaching and my renewed energy for my creative work has continued. Cynthia is inspiring and empathetic and has a wonderful ability to know just how to get you back in your creative flow; to find the joy of it again.

|When I found myself in the midst of a major playwriting project I decided to give Cynthia’s coaching a try. Thank God I did! Oh my, until I experienced her coaching, I never would have believed how powerful coaching could be.
Cynthia’s laser-like insight and her wonderful guiding spirit helped me to get really clear about how I needed to proceed with my writing project. She helped me to create and plan out a physical environment that would make me feel inspired to write, as well as develop and commit to my writing practice (and make it fun!).
We created concrete goals for my project, and I’m happy to say I met (or exceeded) them all. When it comes time to start my next major project, I will definitely be coaching with Cynthia again.

|Thanks so much for all your pragmatic and positive support as I’ve stretched into being a writer. The blog is up and I love it. So much more energizing and creative than my newsletter. Whenever I have doubts or convince myself that I can’t find time to write, I hear your voice in my head and find a way through. Many thanks!
Cindy O’Keeffe, Insight Edge, Boulder, Colorado
I knew Cynthia was the coach for me because of her emphasis on creating a writing life, which has been my biggest challenge. I needed to figure out how to actually get my writing done without becoming a hermit.Through my work with Cynthia, I gained valuable clarity on the place of writing in my life.
I made significant progress on my novel, creating and reinforcing strategies to keep me working in a happy and healthy way. Her calls never failed to turn my mood from discouragement and confusion to joyful enthusiasm. This woman knows her stuff.
I recommend Cynthia to anyone who wants knowledgeable and inspiring companionship on the rocky road of artistic creation.
