Thanks for applying for the Get It Done program, designed to help book authors and academics complete their long-form writing projects.
In my more than 40 years as a professional writer, editor and coach, I have helped hundreds of writers become more productive, successful and ever-so-much happier in their work. Most of all, I've helped them finish their projects, some of which have been dogging them for years.
What follows are some simple questions that will give me the essential information I need to better understand your challenges and to determine whether this program will be a good fit for you.
Many writers have also told me that the simple act of completing this form has helped them better understand themselves and suggested steps they can take to improve their own writing.
Completing the form will take you roughly 15 minutes. If you are interrupted before you finish, the form automatically saves your work. That way, you can return and resume exactly where you left off. If you want to review your answers after you've finished, just use the "back arrows" at the bottom of each page to scroll through backwards the form.
Once you’ve finished and paid the $100 deposit, I will get back to you within 24 hours (or sooner) to let you know whether you’ve been accepted. If you are accepted, I will then send you an invoice for the balance of the program and schedule a 45-minute strategic coaching call with you. If you are not accepted, I will immediately return your deposit it full.
If the questions seem too personal, be assured that I’m not being nosey! Many life situations — such as sleep problems or elderly parents needing care — can have a huge impact on the lives of writers. By knowing about those issues in advance, I’m in a better position to help you make plans to succeed.
