Midyear Book Coaching & Commitment Call
After I briefly share an idea, suggestion, or tip, I open the phone lines to callers and invite them to:
- Describe their recent writing progress
- Share their writing challenges and questions
- Offer ideas, resources, and suggestions to other callers
Plan to attend and take part in the conversation! There’s no way to predict where the conversation will take us on each call, but, there’s always at least one great idea brought-up and shared. These calls are a great way to expand your horizons!
