Whether you’re an amateur writer or a professional one, sometimes it seems impossible to reach that final word count. You stare blankly at the page in front of you, wondering what comes next and waiting for the muse to arrive to show you the way. Sometimes the thoughts flow freely—but only in a bulleted outline. Other times you’re on a roll, but you forgot to save the copy to multiple locations or it’s all in handwritten notes that you still need to transcribe. There are times, still, when it doesn’t matter if you have the best outline or are flying by the seat of your pants and seeing where the story goes, the call of social media is too hard to ignore and you lose hours of work time to the vastness of the internet.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone keep you in line?
Spine Press & Post now offers coaching services for writers. Spine Press & Post will help you get words on the page by tailoring a specific writing plan just for you and your writing style. It doesn’t matter if you like to outline or fly by the seat of your pants; it doesn’t matter if you have notes scattered across twelve notebooks or if you keep it all in your head: as long as you reach your word count.
Sometimes the act of writing is made harder because it seems to have less structure than other jobs, but that’s all a matter of perspective. Creating a schedule and routine to sit down and write tailored to the specifications of your genre (average word count, average reader, etc.) can improve your productivity and help you get to the two most coveted words for any writer: “The End.”
