From Idea To Outline 

Working with coach Susi Holliday you’ll brainstorm your initial concept, dig deeper into your idea(s), develop strong characters and find a way that works for you to create an outline ready for you to start getting the words down. Susi uses a number of methods and will tailor these to suit your needs. This can take place via skype, face-to-face (location dependent), phone or email with the aim of taking you from your simple idea to a full outline… and it doesn’t need to stop there.

As an add on service (charged separately), once you get going, Susi can provide detailed feedback on your first three chapters, and/or ongoing coaching sessions on a regular basis to keep you motivated.

Starting to Write

Working with the coach of your choice, this package will start with the basics, helping you decide what you want to write, how to develop ideas, and how to get started with all the key elements of storytelling: plotting, description, dialogue, character development, outlining, finding time to write, researching your market and more.

This package includes three initial sessions via Skype video, face-to-face (location dependent) or telephone, with pre-work and post-session activities.

After your initial three sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to add regular coaching and feedback sessions (charged separately) focused on your work-in-progress, helping you to get it right from the start and encourage you to keep going.
