My Coaching Philosophy and Writing Credentials.

Posted by & filed under funny, talks, fathers.

“ After forty years of writing for the stage and the page, I know what it is like to face that blank page, to be afraid to start, and then to judge yourself mercifully when you do.  With the coaching I have created a  safe, fun process by which you will be able to get enough courage to bring your story into the light. I still light up when my writing clients experience that ‘aha’ moment where they finally click with their gut and what it is they are trying to say.”
