A good end-of-year exercise! I will get back to GRACE on January 3, 2011.

Ten-Minute Tip: Coach Yourself

by Charlotte Rains Dixon, WordStrumpet

As a precursor to hiring a coach, spend a little time working with yourself. Answer the following questions:

  2. Your biggest writing problem?
  3. If you were coaching yourself, what suggestions would you make to yourself about your writing problem?
  4. How can you put these suggestions into action? When will you put them into action?
  5. What are your three most important writing goals for 2011?
  6. How will you implement them?
  7. If you get stalled on these goals, how will you push forward?
