Sometimes I see talented writers give up. Sometimes they’re overwhelmed by discouragement and doubt. Sometimes they prioritize everything before writing, leaving themselves no time to write. Sometimes they let distractions erode their writing time away. Sometimes they lose their passion or become blocked. It can feel like a little death, seeing a good writer stop writing.
So I was very excited when I heard about the work of Sherry Peters. Writers I knew—writers struggling to keep writing—told me how much their productivity had increased because of Sherry’s help.
I realized Sherry had a skill that many writers need, and I asked if she would share her coaching through Odyssey. I was thrilled that she agreed.
To avoid confusion, let me clarify how Odyssey’s coaching differs from Odyssey’s consultations or critique service. Sherry’s coaching focuses on helping you discover what’s holding you back from writing more and providing the tools and support to overcome those obstacles. She doesn’t provide critiques or writing instruction. Odyssey’s consultations help you conquer problems in your writing–problems with a particular story or novel, or problems with your writing in general, such as being unable to create strong endings. Odyssey’s critique service provides in-depth feedback on stories, novel excerpts, or complete novels.
