Sometimes even the best writer needs a little help to get where he or she wants to be. Whether you’ve got the worst case of writer’s block or just feeling a little lost, a life coach can pull you out of that rut and set you on the path forward. In this two part session with author and life coach Steve Piacente, we’ll cover just a handful of ways life coaching can benefit you and your writing life.

In Part 1, we’ll discuss:

• The "call" to write

• Writer's block and how to overcome it

• How to convert your inner critic into an inner advocate

• And how to get that first draft done!

Then in Part 2, we’ll focus on:

• Maintaining job security

• Achieving professional satisfaction

• Maintaining a healthy work-life balance

• And much, much more!
