Freelance Writers

On the outside, Jess’s freelance writing seems to be going great:  she has a steady stream of assignments, her editors and clients like working with her, and she’s making the money she needs every month. So why is Jess so unhappy? If you ask our writer why she’s so unhappy these days, Jess will say […]

It’s time for you to fall back in love with your freelance writing career, your craft and your life. Why?

Using my powerful productivity system, Write a Book that Matters, this writer set a super-meaningful, (so-big-it’s-almost-daunting) 8-week writing goal she can’t WAIT to achieve. And […]

Last week, I took a risk. As you know, I’ve been guiding writers and busy professionals to get back to writing for over a decade.  It’s thrilling to see them become so fulfilled, passionate and productive through our work together! I’ve spoken so intimately and often to my writer-clients that they’ve become part of my […]
